After almost 4 months on the road, we have finally reached the east coast. We’ve been at Libby’s oceanside RV park in southern Maine since last Thursday. Our campsite backs up to the rocky beach below. We’ve spent two afternoons now on the sandy part of the beach during low tide.
The kids have frolicked about, pretending to be crabs or horses, or played on the large boulders which is their ship. I had a chance to sit and read a little book I bought Stephen for his birthday, Rules for a Knight by Ethan Hawke. One of my WCI instructors mentioned this summer that she read it to her 5th grade class.
Last Saturday we went to the Fairy House tour in the Strawberry Banke Park of Portsmouth, NH. There were so many different, creatively constructed fairy houses. The kids loved it. Strawberry Banke contains some of the oldest buildings in New Hampshire, dating to the 17th century.
Luckily, the weather has been beautiful and mostly sunny during our stay here. Many shops and motels close down at the beginning of fall in York, the town we are near, but it is nice to have an uncrowded beach right at our doorstep.
We spent a few days last week in Vermont, but didn’t explore much beyond our campground. Next week, we will be heading back to Vermont near Burlington and Lake Champlain for more adventures.
