A great weekend was enjoyed and old memories returned when we went to Evergreens Campground this weekend and rented Cabin #5 – The Pines. We arrived on Friday and barely got our feet wet when storm clouds appeared and a thunderstorm rolled in. We were glad to have a dry cabin and made the most of the night playing card games and teaching Caden how to play cribbage. The next day, we packed a picnic lunch and took our canoe and kayak (pulling the tube) down the river!
We found a lot of great places to stop and enjoy the beauty of the river, including the “Climbing Cliff” and “Turtle Rock” where we swam and fished! Siena tried to catch the minnows with the net (but none were caught) while Daddy and Caden fished for bigger fish in the water! Daddy caught a few trout with a net assist from Mia, while Caden fished his heart out but only got a few nibbles. There was also a lot of time spent lounging in the tube!
When we got back to the cabin, we grilled hamburgers and hot dogs on the campfire, and ate beans and cukes from our garden. Then, it was time for s’mores, Mia’s favorite part of the trip. We played 20 questions while enjoying our perfect s’mores and a beautiful full moon.
We were pretty tired from such an adventurous day, so we hit the beds early and rested up for our next day heading to Moxie Falls. One of the tallest single drops in the state of Maine, Moxie Falls is a scenic waterfall a few miles southeast of the Kennebec. What a beautiful sight to see and an even more fun place to swim and have lunch!
Family is like branches of a tree. We may grow in different directions, but our roots remain as one. This is a special place for us and we look forward to making many more memories!
