Went to three campgrounds in short period of time.  Unfortunately, Mother Nature was not smiling on us and it did rain a fair amount making sitting around a campfire next to impossible.

Grand Isle Vermont State Campground was first...

Our little Jack Russell puppy has a great view peeking out of the trailer!

Our site was in a bit of a ravine.  We actually liked Lake Carmi State campground in Vermont much more that this campground.   Even though Grand Isle State Park is right on the lake it had limited access due to the steep cliffs around it.  Recent rain had made everything a mudhole!

Next stop was a campground called Recompence Shore Campground  in Freeport Maine.  What a lovely campground and wonderful hosts.   You are situated right on an inlet with remarkable ocean views.   We stayed in West Bay which had no hook ups but a nice modern shower/bathroom building.  Even though we only stayed one night it was well worth it.   I would clearly go back to this campground.  

Finally, we went to Camden Hills State Park up in Camden Maine.  This is one of the few state parks that does have water and electric which is sort of a luxury for us.  Campground was lovely, just outside of the town of Camden.  It had lots of hikes that you could access from the campground itself.  Once again we had severe thunderstorms with lightning crackling all around us, but we were able to do a short  hike one morning.  The bathhouses were clean and spacious, however we ended up using our trailer most of the time due to the storm and the fact that lightning took out the campgrounds water heater!    Thankfully, we had unplugged our trailer before the worst of the storms so we were relatively safe.  Once again, great campground hosts, and we had a lovely (wet) time!

Heading back home to Vermont, we stopped at Stonewall Kitchens, and sampled a bunch of great jellies, mustards, and salsas.  We bought some Maine blueberry jelly.  Parking was tight at Stonewall and we ending up sharing a fictionary parking spot with a tour bus.  I swear the tour bus people thought the trailer was part of the tour!

Heading home!
