We had seventy campers check in last Friday and Saturday . . .
And that doesn’t include our 50 seasonals.
Poland Spring Campground went from totally deserted to hopping in just a few hours. Everyone seemed so happy to be here, which was kind of strange because Tami was about to make them her slaves put them to work cleaning up the place.
Saturday morning dawned bright and sunny. Tami laid out 10 dozen donuts and 5 dozen muffins at 8am and two hours later, they were pretty much gone!
Of course, she came right to me. “Maxwell! What did I tell you about scoffing down all the donuts and muffins! Those were for the Clean Up crew.”
But I was ready for her. I had proof that I wasn’t the only one enjoying their sweet, gooey-ness!
“Well,” she said, “that explains 7 of them. Where’d the other 163 go?”
Why does she always blame ME, when food goes missing? Didn’t she see all the hungry rakers out in the campground?
They were working hard
Everyone did an awesome job! From the tallest and oldest, right down to the littlest
And not just at raking. There were sweepers
and dog watchers
and Paula too!
In the afternoon, some of my camping buddies came up to the store to get their trees. We like to encourage them to plant between the sites to replenish what might have been trampled or crushed the year before.
After all, what would a campground be without it’s trees??
A parking lot!
When the work was all done for the day, some of our campers found time for ice cream
while others found a quiet spot to fish
right alongside the loons. Do you see it, to the left of the boat? The fishermen were sitting so quietly, that the loons just kept diving and surfacing around the boat. One of the loons came up with a big fish in its mouth, threw it back and swallowed it whole!
I’d like to give a big, big thank you to our entire Clean Up Crew.
We couldn’t have done it without you!!
And Tami probably would have made me her slave for the month if you hadn’t of shown up.
Come see us again real soon . . .
