Blueberry Time is Back

Mid- July marked the beginning of blueberry season here in Camden.  For those of you who don’t know - Maine wild blueberries are very different from those you find in most supermarkets.  They are smaller, darker, and sweeter. PLUS they capture the sweet tooth of both visitors and locals in the summer.

Coast of Maine Brings the Blues

The past weekend swarms of music enthusiasts flocked to coastal  Maine.  The reason was not a big name concert or one of the many eccentric teen-congested music festivals of the summer.  Instead the cause was a impressive yet welcoming gathering on the public landing near the harbor of small town Rockland, Maine.

Making Your Mark In Maine

When most people hear ‘Maine’ three key words immediately come to mind: lobster, moose, and mountains.  One of the top items on every visitor’s to-do list is a hike, so as a local innkeeper, I better have a good recommendation.  Over the past seventeen years I have explored almost every trail in the Camden state park, and all of them have distinct characteristics that make them unique and enjoyably variable.  Maiden’s Cliff provides an impressive overlook of Megunticook lake with a view of the ocean and surrounding mountains in the background.  Mt. Battie has the distinction of being one of the only spots on the east coast where the mountains meet the sea.  The ambitious Mt. Megunticook trail takes you along the ridge top and to the peak of our state park. However despite the differences in terrain, difficulty level, length, and scenery, all of our trails have one thing in common.
