In Maine, many people have as second homes camps located on a pond or lake.
They are not fancy places but are meant for relaxing and enjoying nature, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing or maybe the luxury of dozing on the porch.
Camps are generally simple with no wasted space and places for only necessities.
The whole idea is comfort.
There seem always to be special touches in these homes away from home. Here it’s a rocking chair embroidered with meaningful images by a grandmother. In my eyes, this is a priceless treasure.
Elsewhere it’s the way fresh produce is mounded in a basket
or how a pot of herbs is an ample centerpiece for the evening meal.
Remembering that the reason for being at a camp is to chill, I think it’s time for a little refreshment
and some quiet time on the porch to enjoy the solitude of the pond.
It’s not likely the silence will be broken by anything other than a loon’s baleful cry. Yes, this is the way life should be.
