Summer Coming to a Close at Little Sebago Lake

Time seems to be flying by so quickly and summer 2019 is winding down, so it’s time for me to share one last round of vintage fun times on Little Sebago Lake with my family in the 1950s and 1960s.

Grandfather and Grandmother with Kids

Boathouse Under the Cottage

Grandfather stored his putt-putt in the boathouse for the winter. You can see the steps on the right, which is how we got down to the lakeside unless I wanted to slide down the hill on the other side of the cottage!

Photographing me sitting on those stairs was an obligatory summer picture for Aunt Barbara.

Grandmother, Aunt Barbara & Me, c1957

One of the Wetherbees’ cabins is in the left corner. Grandfather’s car is on the right. I’m all dressed up in an outfit that I’m sure Aunt Barbara bought for. She took me shopping for a new dress every summer. It looks like my doll had a pretty dress on, too!

I think that’s probably our blue Ford sedan on the left. It’s the first car I remember us owning.

Dad and Mom, Making Sure I Was in the Life Vest

I think part of the motivation for learning to swim was to get out of wearing that orange life vest. It was okay when it was dry, but after it got wet, it was cold and weighed a ton!

Until next year, I hope everyone who is lucky enough to camp on Little Sebago Lake savors their memories until new ones can be made.
