camping at Cooksbay

camping at Cooksbay

Tonight I am camped at Cobscook Bay State Park in Maine. It is another very beautiful state park right on Cobscook Bay. Despite the fact that there are no hook-ups this is definitely a place I would choose to stay again. Each campsite is off by itself down a rather long driveway, tucked into the trees overlooking the bay. Both Elsie (my cat) and I are enjoying the privacy.

This afternoon I took a walk and discovered some wild Maine blueberries. On the way back from my walk I stopped and picked enough to top my dinner salad. Tomorrow morning the rest will certainly be on the breakfast menu.

Now everything would be perfect at this campground except for one little-big thing. MOSQUITOES!!!!! I have been careful on this whole trip about keeping the sliding door closed to the RT, placing the Skreenz over the front windows, and using mosquito spray (natural, of course). I have had very little problem with them.

Tonight I forgot all the careful mosquito control planning. I left the side door open while Elsie and I went for a walk. Upon my return many mosquitoes (I believe it was the whole mosquito universe) decided to make my small house their home. They were everywhere.There were so many that Elsie was chasing them. She leapt into the air to catch them. I was glad for her comical assistance.

Now most of them are gone. And yes, I will have to suffer some bad karma for this evening’s work. The unfortunate thing is that there are still a few hovering around in here and while I wait to finish my work I decided to write this post. I am not happy with the few that are remaining. They especially make me grumpy when they hum by my ear. And so I wait.

Tomorrow I will be heading into New Brunswick, Canada. I am looking forward to this part of the trip. With the help of the Roadtrek Facebook group I am anticipating several nice campgrounds and places to see.

The last part of this trip I am on my own with Miss Elsie the Cat. Since May 17th, I have visited several friends and celebrated two weddings. My Roadtrek and I visited the factory in Kitchener.

Now that time is done so I am adjusting to the fact that I am on my own and traveling forward for the next six weeks. It is good to change things up. It keeps me on my toes. I have the cutest little Roadtrek to drive and make my home and I have Miss El to keep me company. I am ready to travel on.
