September 17th & 18th

This campground was a complete bargain, only $25 per night for full hook-up, including free wifi (Dave didn’t have to set up the mega dish, another bonus!), beautiful wooded sites, playground, including a volleyball net, which we played at a lot! The wonders of $store inflatable balls – this time, it was a volleyball, didn’t work so well in the wind but served its purpose and didn’t injure anyone when it fell on their head!

When one of the employees saw Nate collecting sticks for a fire, she brought over an enormous bundle of firewood for free. When Dave went to the office to pay, the owner had just been to the field to pick corn; she gave us a dozen ears, which were SO deliciously sweet, we had to eat two!

I love this photo of Nate looking to see what Jake's doing to shuck the corn, so adorable.

We found another geocache locally that was on a major intersection, easy one, small, just held the log book so no treats this time. We are getting addicted, such a great way to actually ‘see’ places you’ve never really noticed before. We’re having fun with them. On the way, we were noticing the odd red tree that he already turned, amongst the green ones. We also took a longer route back to the campground and passed a large number of deer, including a young buck (spotted by Nate).

It was a pleasant and relaxing couple of days, finished on Friday night by a raging fire, these are the times when camping ‘can’t be beat’.
