Camping and Kayaking

We had a busy weekend this past weekend. So busy that I kept saying Sunday night that I needed a weekend to recover from my weekend. It actually wasn't too bad. We were able to go camping for the first time this summer and the weather couldn't have been better. We ended up at a state park, Cobscook Bay, about 1 1/2 hours from here. Unfortunately, by the time we reserved our site all the good sites on the bay were booked. We did have a "slight view" of the Bay though. Jeremy took this picture while standing on the bench of the picnic table.

You still can't really see the bay, but I promise it's there.

Saturday afternoon Jeremy tried his hand at mystery shopping, which meant we spent all afternoon running around so he could do it. He also had to upload everything by that night so we had to find some free wifi to do that. We then hurried back to our campsite so we could make dinner before dark. That didn't happen. We did have some good grilled pizza and reese's s'mores though.

Sunday morning we had to leave nice and early so we could get back in time for church. We would have just skipped, but we were becoming official members that day so we had to be there. Also, there was a church picnic later in the day. The picnic ended up being at a couple's house back in the direction of the state park so we were driving back and forth on Route 1 all day. At least it's a pretty drive.

Some new friends of ours invited us to their camp after the picnic to kayak. Their camp is on a lake, or what people around here call a pond. Everything is a pond here, no matter the size. We were going to kayak at the picnic, but it was pretty windy on the river so our new friends said we could at their place instead, where it would be calmer. Since this was to be our first time in a kayak, we thought that sounded better.

Kayaking was so much fun and the pond was beautiful. I'm sad we didn't have a camera with us to capture it. We went around a couple of small islands and I was surprised to see that we were pretty much the only people out on the water. I definitely want to do it again sometime. I hope we get the chance.

We finally got home for good Sunday evening and I pretty much collapsed and didn't do anything else. It felt so good.

Not that I question Jeremy's ability, but I am sure he wasn't the one setting up the tent. It just looks too much of a good job... :)))

Haha. No, he set it up. We have a routine - I make the fire while he sets up the tent.
