ATV NEWS UPDATE:
The Border Riders Club and Pittston Farm have been working on a trail system to connect and were waiting for the state to move the toll booth/gate. FINALLY, it is moved.
They are signing the trail today and are planning to have this trail open by Friday. SO now, another place for ATVers to travel to (food and fuel) 😀
Finally after weeks of rain or overcast skies (although I think we had more periods of sunshine then most of Maine) yesterday was hot, sunny and humid. I could do away with the humidity but by evening, the winds kicked up and it cooled us off.
This image above is from our webcam this morning. Sunny bright and a little breeze. The weather report from Bishop-s Store is 78, humidity at 60% and wind speeds at 2mph. According to their chart we have only had 4.7 inches of rain this month so there is proof, we have not had as much as rain in our little piece of heaven.
Well once again, I wait till the last day to write in the Journal! We had a wonderful time. We did so much this trip. Quebec City for a day, on the way home we saw at least 8 moose ❗ ❗ Went white water rafting, Kayaks, dinner, dancing, the pot luck picnic which is always great. Tami Steve and Murphy – thanks so much for everything. You always make us feel like part of your family. We will miss you guys so much until next year. Love ya.

Arrived after a long drive form Cape Cod and found the Jacuzzi the ideal way to relax. The week began very cool temps and rain. While not the weather we hoped for it was great for animal spotting. Hummingbirds, loons deer, grouse, red fox, and of course moose. Barry and Sasha liked Moxie Trail-great falls ❗ Visited the German POW memorial. Explored and walked a dozen dirt roads and picked tiny strawberries, delicious ❗ Saw several waterfalls and cedar waxwings. Our dog Sasha was in doggy heaven with walks and smells. Drove to Greenville explored, ate and Auntie Ms. Visited Lilly Bay. Had supper at Big wood steakhouse. Snuck in naps, ad reading. Lovely well cared for place. Thanks Tami and Steve for making us welcome 🙂

Before going home, Jesse got on the ATV and had to take another pose.
We had such fun with these buddies while they were here 😀 Thanks Nancy, for sharing them with us.
When you are trying to decide on a cabin here at Cozy Cove, many have asked about lake view and even “how much space between each cabin. If you have never been here before, we realize it is hard to imagine. So we took a couple snapshots from each of the cabins that are not “lake side” so you can see what you will see from your porch or deck. We hope this is helpful to you.
Last night, the boys were out at sunset to enjoy a little campfire with us. Amos played a little guitar for me as promised. Jesse just roasted marsh mellows, his jug not far away. Luckily, neither got roasted themselves:wink: I do not think they realize they are made out of clay.
Jesse and Amos Fuddy were hanging out the other evening and as usual, Murphy was wanting attention. She does this by putting her head under your hand, hoping you will pet her. She went up to Jesse, put her head under his hand and as you can see below, was very content with him as his hand plopped over her. She just sat there patiently waiting for him to pet her. I think she thought he was real 😕
It was very funny to watch this. We need a dog whisperer.
Today was a glorious day in Jackman-first perfect sunny summer day in 2 weeks ❗ So Jesse and Amos decide to take the paddle boat out.
They did not get too far but after the ride, Jesse decided he was too tired to move himself so I had to carry him back to his cabin 😆 He did promise though to play a little guitar later on. Wait and see.
Now Jesse chose to hang out on the bench with his jug. Eventually though he needed to be carried up too.
Mark and Laurie have been coming to Jackman in the winter to snowmobile. This year, they chose to try a summer trip and had a great time. Besides enjoying the 4th with us, they played on their jet skis and rented ATVs to explore the region when it was green instead of white. “What a blast”
See you guys in February ❗
