After spending a couple of days in the Adirondacks we made our way over to coastal Maine and the place we would call home for the next week. We didn’t want to be on the road during the busy July 4th/Canada Day long week-end so the only reservations we made prior to leaving home were for a week at Bayley’s Camping Resort just south of Portland, ME. It’s an amazing park with everything you could ever want, 4 pools, 6 hot tubs, shuttles to the nearby beach, mini-golf, tennis, etc, plus nice roomy sites.
We spent an especially lovely afternoon exploring the Portland Headlight in Fort Williams Park at Cape Elizabeth. The lighthouse was commissioned by President George Washington and first lighted in 1791. There are miles of trails that wind through the park and it is extremely dog-friendly, we enjoyed it so much that we returned the next morning with Laia so she could run and enjoy the breezy, sea air. The rest of the week was spent exploring nearby peninsulas, biking and just enjoying the beautiful weather.
