Up To Camp

Last year, my uncle Rob bought this beautiful camp on Sebec Lake. It's on it's own little peninsula with a beautiful view of tree covered hills and the vast blue sky on a clear summer day! Needless to say, we enjoy our visits there during the summer.
There's plenty to keep us busy. Four-wheeling, for instance. I prefer to let others drive while I ride.
Tubing is one of our favorite Sebec Lake adventures. Here's my cousin Kristy, who is a tubing pro!
Ethan found a little friend! She was floating away from the shore and cried, "help! Bring me back!" And he went and rescued this damsel in distress!!
Michelle, a family friend, tried and tried to get her standard poodle, Champagne, into the water, but she just wouldn't go. Finally we coaxed her into the Kayak- as you can see she's quite enjoying herself- she even put on a pair of sunglasses for the ride!
There's my "little" cousin Renee (she's going to be a freshman in High School this year!!) sporting her oh, so cool sunglasses. My uncle calls her "Hollywoooooood" when she wears them.

Here's Josiah, ready for a nice, relaxing ride. Little did he know how my uncle despises Yankee fans....
............and therefore, gave him a run for his money, resulting in........
.... an entertaining flip!!

Here's Kayla, the unexpecting, Yankee fan #2. She was a little more prepared than her fiance.

She held on for dear life as Uncle Rob took her for a wild ride.
But alas, she didn't hold on long enough and joined 'Siah as the only two people to get flipped that day, much to our amusement!!!
Here's a view of the camp. Doesn't it look so quaint, peaceful and perfect for a retreat!
Mom got back on the skis after 5 or 6 years of dormancy in that area. She did great!

These two pictures are the views from the front porch. Isn't it gorgeous?

I like this picture of me and Renee. I so enjoy spending time with my cousins- they are extra special!

This is how we all feel after a busy day in the sun at Stumble Inn (the name of the camp)! I hope you felt a little rested and refreshed looking at these pictures!

I really like that picture of you and your cousin, Renee, too. Is it just me, or does Renee look quite a bit like you and Kayla?

That picture of Ethan and the little girl is sooo cute! :D
