Archery for Liam’s birthday

We went camping for Liam’s birthday near Wolfe’s Neck state park, and took archery lessons.

Camping usually means packing the car to the very brink. Also there are two bikes on top, and two on a rack behind.
We took a training through LL Bean.
It was fun to learn. We were so excited that we took the target papers home as trophies.

These were the bows they had us use. Very nice. Strong and comfortable to hold and they really  look the part!

Lunch at the campsite.



One day we went out on the mud flats when the tide was low and had a mud fight. No pictures.
Reid enthusiastically explored the integrated farm that was part of this camping area called “recompense”. He found, and showed us pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, geese, and cows. It’s delightful to have Reid take us around on bikes on a farm tour.
One morning I went for a run in Wolfe’s Neck state park, and came across this little view. It’s a special view for me. Here’s why (see below).
We visited this precise spot seven years ago, when Reid was 1 & 1/2.  What’s more we have a famous video of the event. See below. You’ll see the same angle on the bridge toward the end of the video (although apparently a small birch is now missing).
