Before you forget winter in Camden, ME, we want to show pictures on just how beautiful it is. It is hard to believe that 2 weeks ago, we had 30 inches of snow. Now with the warmer temperatures and rain, lots of snow is melting.
Winter in Camden, ME 2017
In the beginning of February 2017, Camden saw 5 snow storms within 10 days.
As the snow fell on February 11, it was possible to see the individual snowflakes on your gloves. Each is truly unique. It was just beautiful. Then came the work.
We shoveled for several days to clear all of the walkways. While shoveling, we eyed the harbor in anticipation of a walk to enjoy nature’s beauty.
This is Ted roof raking. A roof rake is a 20 ft aluminum rake that allows you to pull snow off of the roof. It is used to prevent ice dams. Ice dams form when there is a loss of heat through the roof, snow melts and refreezes causing the dam. The snow must be removed so water sitting against the dam does not leak inside and cause damage. Roof raking is a tricky task. One must be sure not to pull the snow down on one’s head. This is why I do not roof rake.
For several mornings after the snowfall, there were some amazing sunrises. In my opinion, the light in Maine is fantastic. So many shades of pinks and purples.
A Walk in Camden
Walking down High Street into Camden.
View of the Harbor from the Library Lawn. I never get tired of this view, no matter what the season. Continuing down Main Street into Camden Harbor. More quiet in the winter than the summer, but every bit as scenic.
It was a great day to be out for a walk. We decided to walk down Bayview Street to the beach.
On the beach, looking back at Camden Harbor.
Fog hanging over Camden Hills.
Ironically, we were not the only people walking the beach. In fact several couples were arriving as we were leaving to see the sunset.
Cleverly painted door that we noticed on the way back to the inn. We will have to check this out in the summer. I believe that it was a gallery.
The Christmas tree is still lit in Harbor Park. There are a number of houses around that still have Christmas wreaths hanging on doors. I love that Camden is so festive.
Camden is every bit as beautiful in the winter as the summer. Don’t you agree? What is your favorite winter scene in Camden?
