This time we all get out of the car and the owner Jim comes out to greet us and has a heyday with Garrett. You can tell he really enjoys kids. Yep, I think this is definitely the place for us!! He asks Tim which spot and we said 61, he said he had a feeling that was going to be the one we chose. So while they were talking Garrett and I headed over to the playground. OMG, this place is awesome!! They had built 3 different buildings for the kids with different things inside one was a dollhouse with a play kitchen, and play Dr's office, one was a jailhouse, and one was a schoolhouse. They had a sandbox with all kinds of tonka trucks, several slides and swings. Garrett was in Heaven!! So was I because the playground is fenced, I can sit on the outside of it while he plays in the sandbox in the shade and sit under a shade tree myself. They also have chairs set up so you can do just that!! Wow, now I am really impressed and thankful that we decided to look in CT as well.
We headed back into the office to let his wife know that we wanted that sight. I think we are going to be very happy at this campground!! We were told that site has a lot of deer that come right up to it because of the forest behind us. After coming home and doing some research we found out that they also have bear, mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, fox and occasionally moose. So we are going to have to be very mindful of Bailey and Garrett while we are there. We've gotten used to being at a commercialized campground and not really having to worry about those things.
Well now that is done we are heading to the beach. They have an area here in CT where dogs can swim all day as well. Our drive there was very pretty!!
Garrett and I finished up and headed in. Ugh, this water was gross!! So mucky and you couldn't even see what was in the water. Not liking this much and Bailey kept sinking in and couldn't move her feet. Tim actually had to lift her out because she couldn't make it on her own. With her hips so bad she just couldn't move her legs. I felt so bad for her and Garrett because I knew how much they both wanted to swim. But with the water like this there is no way we can let them play. Bailey can't move and Garrett keeps sinking, ugh!! We got them out and on the beach and she was so tired and sore that she just plopped down and played with her ball. Poor dog!!
We pulled up and holy crow, were they busy!! We actually had a guy showing everyone where to park. Taking a picture in front of the building so I remember the name :)
