My Summer Vacation
Since my family loves to camp, we did a lot of it. One of my families’ favorite camping places is Mooselook Meguntick campground. It has great swimming, hiking and canoeing! The swimming is great because the bottom is all sandy and there aren’t many rocks. I love the hiking there because it takes you all around the mountain! The canoeing is awesome because the water is not very rough. We usually go with my aunt and uncle and their dog. It is pretty hard to get out to your campsite. You have to take a boat because it’s on an island. We love to sit around the campfire and roast marshmallows. This year, I also learned how to fly fish!
We also went to Acadia National Park and went biking on the carriage trails. We had a great time!!! It is fun to play games and test out our bikes at the campsite so we know they work before we go on our 16 mile bike ride on the trails. The biking is so beautiful and fun, because you can see mountains and lakes and many animals.
This year we went to a place called South Arm with my friend Elizabeth. There were many toads and crayfish, and we loved to catch them. We are planning on going there again next year!
We went white water rafting on the Kennebec River. WOW THAT WAS A BLAST!!!!! We splashed through the waves and got soaked! We also went swimming through the rapids and it was so scary it was fun. After the rafting, we had a delicious BBQ of fish, steak and chicken. Rafting was one of the best things I have ever done!
Since my grandfather died last year we spent a lot of time with my grandma to help her out. she lives by the ocean so we love to go there. We also went to my other grandparent’s house which is near the ocean too!! Overall, my summer was fantastic!
