Water fun

Today is one of those perfect summer days in Jackman. The skies are clear, sun is warm, no humidity and the waters are calm.   It is a great day to be out on the lake swimming, laying around in a tube, or water skiing.

Or just sit on the deck and watch them ride by

Just look up

If you are out on the ATV or sitting around the campfire, you just have to look up once in awhile and take it all in. You never know what you will see.

Our guest, Kelly D., woke around 3 am one morning and heard the loons calling. When she looked our the window, this is what she saw.

I have no other words to say on this.   Just a perfect moment.

 

Campfire and sunsets

I have always said that we get the best sunsets here at Cozy Cove Cabins.  The changing skies, clouds and many times, just the colors that reflect off the lake are awesome. Cindy and her friends captured a perfect moment. An incredible sky with a warm cozy fire in our common pit by the lake. What could be better?

4th of July in Jackman 2019

Another great 4th of July celebration in Jackman.   The parade seemed a bit smaller then usual but still fun.

I captured a couple of our guests waiting for the parade to start

After the parade, our guests and some friends all gathered on our shore for our annual 4th of July potluck.  Good food, good conversation, new friends.

Then the fireworks at the town field which as always, the best in Maine.

High water fun

With all the snow melt and rain, the waters are all pretty high in the region. But if you like class IV rafting, it is a great time on the Dead River.

Here is a description from one of the rafting companies in West Forks:  ” The Dead River has eight special high volume dam releases each season that produce big whitewater action over 16 miles. The river bed drops steadily during the entire run and produces long, consistent action that builds throughout the day in Class III-V rapids such as “Humpty Dumpty”, “Elephant Rock” and “Spruce Ledges”. Each rapid includes long wave trains and sudden drops into deep holes.The Dead continues to build through dozens of rapids and culminates in the LONGEST RAPID IN THE NORTHEAST, Class IV-V “Poplar Hill Falls”. “Poplar” on its own is one mile of whitewater with huge standing waves and deep, turbulent holes. When you combine “Poplar” with the rest of this action packed trip, you have the finest raft trip in the Northeast!”

The first release in on May 11th.   Do you dare?  Of  course rafting trips are offered well into September.

We no longer have a rafting company in Jackman but the Forks is only a 30 minute ride. Spend the weekend with us and then come back to your cabin after your ride to share your experience with each other while roasting marshmallows by a campfire.

July weather is crazy

I am sure most of the east coast, as well as the country, agrees that this has been a crazy summer.   Hotter then normal and here in Jackman, we have had more humidity then normal.

One thing that stays the same here at Cozy Cove is the incredible skies especially as the sun begins to set. Rain or shine, what a fabulous view.

4th of July 2018

Once again, Celie and Kevin did a float for the parade.  Jurassic Park

It did not go as planned though.  The T Rex intended to run after the jeep but Kevin found that the legs of the costume were just too short to run in.  We also planned to have T Rex sounds coming off the jeep but due to some technical difficulties, it did not happen.   OH well, they still won best vehicle.

The rest of the parade was fun as usual and the best clown?

Looking for a snack

This pretty bird rambled onto the yard strutting around like he owned the place.   Walked up to a couple cabins then back.  I think someone was feeding him and he wanted another snack.   Pretty though.
