This week on the Camera Couple: Rose has a work meeting up north and the couple have plans to camp in the last two states they have left in the northeast. Will Rose get to meet her coworkers in Portland, ME for the first time? Will the couple get to camp in Delaware and New Jersey? Or, will it be the last time we see one of the key members of the Camera Couple crew? Cue ominous music...
The summer saga continues as we packed up to head out on the road once again! While we love visiting up north, we hadn't hit any new states in a long time. I am still working on my 50 before 30 bucket list, so it was time to tackle a few newbies. This time Michigan and Wisconsin were our new states, bringing the score to 36/50 complete. The route consisted of Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio then home all in two weeks.
It's been a while since you've heard from us! The Camera Couple has been BUSY this summer as we tackle our new remote life on the road. In all of the job changes and trip planning chaos we haven't had much time to catch everyone up on all our fun adventures. So here we go!
We look forward to this time every year. It's time for our annual Maine vacation!
Well, by July 15th, the new Mr. & Mrs. CameraCouple were off traveling back to Canada again! Only this time, there were two new rings on our fingers.
It's wedding week in Deer Isle, Maine!
Well it's here! After a year of being engaged the big moment has arrived. FOREVER. Cameron and I planned our wedding for July 13, 2019 up in Deer Isle. Of course, being the (now camping) Camera Couple, we had to do a destination wedding filled with a gorgeous two-week road trip. The plan was to leave from North Carolina, head up to Niagara Falls and go through Canada back down into Maine. After the wedding we planned our honeymoon for Nova Scotia! Passports get ready!!
This is my third time to Massachusetts. Every time I have visited I've wanted to see Plymouth and Salem. Historical stuff always interested me. It's fascinating to actually see the places that you learn about. Unfortunately that can also mean you get your hopes up about how cool they are in reality.
Plymouth Rock. It sounds so grand and majestic. You almost picture a cliff with a sunset behind it, Mayflower docked in the water below and a buckled shoe perched majestically on the rock. Oh, that's just me huh? Let's just say that the image in my head didn't quite match up to reality...
Traveling for the holidays is a necessity that most people dread. Not us! This year would be the first year that we spend both Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years together. Since we went to Maryland for Thanksgiving, that means that Massachusetts is up for Christmas! For those of you that are geographically challenged, the drive from North Carolina to Massachusetts is a long one. We knew we had to do it in two days but weren't quite sure where to stop in between. Maryland was the obvious choice since we know people there and it wouldn't cost us anything; but we have been there before! Rose had some points from Choice Hotels and scored us a free hotel room. Atlantic City here we come!
Just because we left the island doesn't mean the adventure is over!
