My vacation land is Bog Lake in Northfield, Maine where I go fishing, swimming and tubing.I’m usually up to camp for 2 months and I’m with family and friends. Bog Lake is a vacation land for Maine, if you like the outdoors, which I do. I like being by the campfire, being warm, and having s’mores while listening to the waves crashing the rocks. You can also hear loons at night. I get up early in the morning, like around 5:00, and go fishing. I can still hear the loons as I get in my boat and go out to the middle of the lake. I catch big trout and its so big it tugs the pole and I go forward. I come back for

lunch, go four-wheeling, and then go swimming and go on the water trampoline.

 

For supper we will usually have a barbecue, and then I will get a fire started and and get my camp chairand sit by the lake where the fire is. I will grab some rocks so I can throw them at the water. My dog will try to get them. I’m usually at the fire for hours, I hear frogs ribbit and the crickets chirping and itsget colder and colder. In the morning I will usually have Bacon and eggs with orange juice and I will walk my dog and see my neighbors who are from new york and its a new camping experience for them. My two friends name cody and chris are from new york and at night we play flash light tag and man hunt and we catch frogs late at night and in the morning we will take them and onmy boat and put them and throw them on hI pads. Sometime my cousins up and we play waterfootball and its really fun. We also go tubing and I will usually drive the boat and my cousins usually fall off the tube and fly in that water and its a really fun experience. This is my life in the summer at bog lake but I go in the winter sometimes and I still have a good time. During the winter I will go ice fishing with my grandfather and my cousin. We will stay in his camp for 2 weeks. We will have our own ice shack in the middle of the lake and will take snowmobiles out because they are light and a four wheeler will be to heavy and a lot harder to go. We get in our ice shack and then we stay there for the day and its really cold out so we extra jackets on and I usually bring something to drink and a bag of chips so I wont go hungry and it can take a long time to catch a fish and we use worms as bait. I have caught trout during ice fishing but its very hard to because they usually go up stream. My cousin has caught a cat fish during ice

fishing. Sometimes we go sledding of the ice and tie the rope to the snowmobile and goaround the lake really fast. We will go inside and watch movies and have hot chocolate andthen me and my cousin will have a big snow ball fight. Some days we will get up in the morning and go hunting and in cutler in the morning. Before we leave the camp we have scrambled eggs and bacon and sausage in the morning we will see bobcat tracks and deer tracks. We will go to cutler in my dads deer tent. And this is my friends first season and he almost got a deer and he almost got a 4 pointer but he missed. We will go back home and go ice fishing. Bog lake is a good place for tourist and people out of state to explore nature and have relaxation in the woods and a good place for swimming fishing and fun activities at night. Bog Lake is my vacation for summer and for winter.
