We made the last leg of our journey from Florida to Maine yesterday. We pulled out of Croton Point Park in Westchester County, NY around 7:30 and some six hours and four states later we were in Scarborough, Maine. We only traveled about 315 miles yet we were in five states: New York>Connecticut>Massachusetts>New Hampshire>Maine.
Surprisingly the roads were not too crowded for being in the northeast/New England corner of the country. Below is our new home for the next four months. In exchange for a free site and electricity, we will be work camping here until October 10. Each of us will work four days a week for three or four hours. Sandy will work in the office and I will help with maintenance. Then we are off for the same three days.
Wild Duck Campground is Located in the middle of the Maine Audubon’s Scarborough Marsh. Wildlife includes waterfowls, egrets, herons, ibises, raptors, muskrat, mink, otter, deer and moose. The marsh is the state's largest salt water marsh and can be explored by foot, kayak or canoe.
The campground is adults only and, as you might expect very tranquil. There are only 70 sites which includes an area for tent camping.
The grounds are immaculate and well tended. And when the wind blows in the tall pines the sound reminds me of ocean waves rolling onto the beach.
Flowers add color.
This view of the marsh is what we see out of our front window.
And because “wild duck” is part of the camp’s name, it is good to see that Mother Nature is seeing that there is a new supply of duck to swim in the pond.
