Fun is on its Way!

Since we were over a week late to Bayley’s our work shifts began the day after our arrival.  There have been a few changes in our expected scheduling but we are hopeful that it will still work for us.  First, right now Jerry is not just cooking but he is doing some maintenance chores while they are still opening the campground.  It is open for business but there are several projects and he is assisting with them since the restaurant is only open the weekends until after Memorial Weekend.  My change is that I will not be working in the bakery the entire time.  The person that was not going to return changed her mind and she will be working in the bakery full time while I fill in on her days off and my other days and or nights will be working the register in the restaurant.  It gives us both a variety of things while we are here as long as they will make sure we both have the same hours and days off which is what really matters to us.

Since the restaurant is closed most of the week, Jerry is helping with maintenance and our days off will be Wednesday and Thursday and we plan to do some exploring on our bikes.  We are less than a mile from the ocean and we have not seen much of the area and there are so many things for us to do that are close by until we take Maggie for a ride in a few weeks.

For now we are allowing Maggie to dry up which is a bit difficult since it has been raining every day.  The floor under our bed that made it all the way out into the kitchen area from the way we were sitting in the junk yard is dry but we can really feel the squishiness in several areas that we will need to investigate before we take her out for a ride anywhere. 

We have several major decisions to make but we feel at this moment we have time to make them.  We will be settled in here for a few months and in the meantime we will work through all the issues that came up during our 3 month journey across the country.  For now we will just relax and try to enjoy our time here and possibly learn to get back on the positive ride that we have held onto for most of our lives.  It’s going to take us some time to get back into believing and holding on, we know we will get there but it just seems as if it will take longer than it usually does since this was a major hit on us. 

Our two days off we took bike rides, first to Walmart where halfway back Jerry got a flat and he had to walk it the rest of the way.  I went ahead of him to get the pump but there was a nail puncture in the tire so we inflated and he rode it a bit, we inflated and he rode it a bit until finally we made it home.

Our next day off together we rode our bikes down to Old Orchard Beach to check out the local excitement.  Now not so much since it’s still chilly up here and the season has not even started but once it does it will surely be much busier.  More than half of the stores and restaurants are not even open yet but it was a nice ride and we did pick up a great Maine pin for our map.

Amazingly we have been in Maine now for over a week and we have yet to taste any lobstah!  That will soon change…

Sounds like a perfect place to be and as a camp host, you may also be able to find a similar job in the snowbirding south during the winter. Having the ocean close would be such a plus for me! Enjoy your summer.

Looks like a great place to spend time. Soft spots will sure need to be checked out.
