Camden Wedding


There are several wonderful wedding venues in Camden. One of my favourites is the Vesper Hill Children's chapel.

The Vesper Hill Children's Chapel is a beautiful outdoor Chapel, in Rockport, less than 2 miles from Blue Harbor House. It sits high on a ledge, the focal point of mature, well-tended gardens, with climbing hydrangea over the stone wall of the foundation, and willows, pines, birches and much much more. They also have great herb garden in the grounds. It is a very peaceful, beautiful and serene place, a lovely place to visit any day of the year, though most popular for weddings during the summer.

Maiden's Cliff, Camden




Take a hike up one of the many trails in Camden Hills State park. The views are incredible.
The 5,500 acre park provides 30 miles of hiking trails along the shore and in the Megunticook Mountain range, whose peaks rise from near sea level to a height of 1,380 feet. One outstanding feature of this range is Maiden Cliff, a rock outcropping that rises 800 feet from the shore of Megunticook Lake and offers hikers outstanding views from the top. Take a look at these absolutely stunning views. Breathtaking!

Spring has sprung a surprise!



Well, Blue Harbor House looks pretty as a picture, but definitely not your typical spring day!

Camden is not well known for it's ski slopes,( but on a day like today skiing comes to mind!)however the Snow Bowl is quite unlike anything else in the East.
From the summit of 1300' Ragged Mountain, home to the Snow Bowl's trails, skiers and riders have an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. The Camden Snow Bowl really is "where the mountains meet the sea".

Although now closed for the season, the Camden Snow Bowl is the place to look for good, affordable skiing for all levels. Look forward to next season......

Well, actually snorkeling this time! (and testing the dry suits for the first time this season). Terry and Jade are snorkeling at Beauchamp point which is lovely area of Rockport. You can walk from Camden to here - a most beautiful walk. It is also a popular local dive spot.
