We get up to lots of mischief.
1st day off: Full staff day off! The night before the camp paid for us to see Get Smart the movie...I literally passed out from exhaustion during 3/4s of the movie!!! The next morning we split up into cars and went to Freeport (major outlet shopping). Checked out these huge shops and STARBUCKS! So exciting just to drink softdrink and good coffee again! ha ha! We then drove to Old Orchard Beach (a seaside fair and shopping village) when it decided to rain on us
1st Tuesday off: We headed to Old Port (a part of Portland- Maine's capital) for some seaside shopping and BUBBLE TEA!!! (This WEIRD iced tea latte thing with tapioca 'bubbles' in it). We then went to the Maine Mall where Abby and I did some stress relieving retail therapy and I called home for the first time!!!! Then we headed to Wallmart, Pat's pizza and the gutter (and basically anywhere to chill out that wasn't camp!!!)
2nd Tuesday off: We all drove to New Hampshire (the next state over from Maine) to the 'Lazy River' where we hired tubes, bought alcohol, tipped alcohol into water bottles when we were told we couldn't have glass on the river, tied our tubes together, and floated luxuriously down the river!!!! By the end we were incredibly happy, and some were incredibly sunburnt (NOT ME MUM!!!). We then drove to the big smoke to watch the Portland Seadogs vs
3rd Tuesday off: Major early morning trip to BOSTON!!! Woohoo!!! Checked out the original Thai Dish (the greatest restaurant ever!) and got discounted entrees because Team Handsome are so obsessed with Thai dish that they've embroided team handsome hats and have used thai dish as their 'unofficial sponsers'! (the poor oriental staff were just so confused they probably gave us free food to shut us up!) We then met up with some ex-Wekeela campers who went to camp with Emily and Alex (ie. incredibly rich, spoiled 18yr old kids with amazing cars, clothes and allowances!) who crammed us into their cars and gave us the most upperclass tour ever!! Saw the richest areas of Bosten, ate the most expensive icecream of my life, and window shopped in prada and gucci stores in my camp singlet and pluggers!!! Best of all was when we met someone who studied music with Emily who was attending a summer school course at Berklee college of music and gave us a free tour. Amazing!!!!!
4th Tuesday off: Woke up at 5am (Getting earlier and earlier!) and drove to Alex's parent's summer house in Belfast, Maine. It was an absolutely beautiful mansion in the middle of nowhere. Maine is full of deros, and then random mansions belonging to rich people and movie stars who only visit during the summer. We ate breaky in a tiny diner and checked out a cute little girl with a weird dad in an even weirder hat. After about 20 minutes, Jake took out his i-phone and googled something. A second later he held up the phone with a picture and Dr John Carter from ER on it, and wide-eyed he pointed towards the little girl's weird father. When he turned around we realised we were eating with a movie star!!!!!!
5th Tuesday off: Haley's birthday!!!!!!! Drove to Auburn and booked a room in the Econo Lodge (30mins from camp and right next door to the closest pub from camp - Rack m Up). We then bought supplies at Walmart....smoothie for breaky.....drove to Old Orchard Beach for candy, lazing on the beach, shopping, and Haley got a manicure and massage. Then we headed back to our room to play drinking games and eat Mexican (arrrrrrrrrrrrr......Mexican!) for tea. We had a giant cake and then headed over to Rack M Up to meet the whole rest of camp and even Ephram and the junior counsellors!! Abby and I snuck back to the lodge and chilled on the ground playing truth or dare.
Random Half day off - Walmart in the morning of course to buy color war clothes and white shirts for tie dyeing
Final day off - This was meant to be a chilled out day with Bridget, Daryl and I....our only plan being to find a massage place and a pub to watch the olympics in. The rest of our group headed off at 6am to go surfing (too cold and early for my car!). We planned to meet up with them after a walmart trip, but we realised we didn't have anyone's phone number!!! Finally we decided to go to Old Orchard Beach one last time and got completely lost on the way. 3 hours later we finally made it! Then it rained! Then the only pub with a tv was playing a baseball game and no olympics! Then the spa was so expensive we almost fainted before we walked out the door. Then it rained even harder. Ha ha ha! What a day. Just as we were leaving, we bumped into the boys who didn't end up going surfing afterall because of the weather. We drove to a pub and watched the olympic...wrestling...gah!?! Then we drove to Lewiston and checked out the brewery (pretty bad yankie beer)
