Trip Report Ogunquit Family Get Together

Jump to last reply

Our family has had some nice get togethers, sometimes to celebrate special events or sometimes just holidays...like a wedding in Kansas, Thanksgiving at the Florida Keys, Playa del Carmen vacation, 50th anniversary in Colorado mountain cabins. Not counting holiday gatherings. So now this July a week together in Ogunquit. Rental of a house: www.vrbo.com/272796ha.

It was agreed to take turns preparing evening meals. Some breakfasts prepared by volunteers...pancakes, bacon & eggs, etc. Lunches would be pick up unless a bite out somewhere. Also that everyone could do what they wanted. So some went sailing and some hiking and some shopping and some whale watching and some to the playhouse and some to a nearby museum and some tasting lobster rolls or other cuisine and some going into Portland for museums and some playing table games and some watching DVDs and some of course to the beach.

We got along pretty well I think. The group included our son and his DW from Kansas (with their 28 year old son), our daughter and her DH from Florida and our son with his partner (and two youngsters) from Medford. One night we had a special birthday dinner celebrating everyone's birthday. There were silly hats and candles and stories (each telling of some birthday memory).

Weather mostly pleasant...it is cool along the Maine coast. One thunderstorm and some drizzles. It's great for a family to bond in this way. Just chatting in the kitchen or sunroom. Or playing with the young ones. Sometimes just reading or relaxing in the sun or strolling up the path. No one forced to do anything except what they wanted. I liked having our three grown children interact and for us grandparents to have this time with them. Only regret that several other grown grandchildren couldn't come.

More details later. Anyone else celebrate family togetherness like this? As a young couple we took many trips with our three including lots of camping. That meant seeing places around the country and having new experiences. None of the spouses are campers really but that's OK. We likely wouldn't enjoy it the same way either. We are thankful to have health most of all and that our loved ones are happy.
