Unfortunately when we were driving over on Sunday, a stone flew up, smashed loudly against the window and created a tiny chip at the very edge of the windscreen. After we stopped for lunch, the chip had grown into a crack; by Tuesday, it was an even longer crack which unfortunately meant a complete windscreen replacement was necessary. In addition, a couple of engine sensors had to be replaced AND the brakes needed checking. We were without the truck all day and the privilege of being tied to the camper cost us a tidy sum, gulp!
Thankfully, the campground was gorgeous with two playgrounds within sight of our campsite. An advantage of staying in State Parks is that often activities and programs are offered. We borrowed the Children’s Activity Backpack from the office and wandered over to the River. The younger kids were excited to catch bugs in the clear containers, examine them with magnifying glasses, and scope out the mountain range with binoculars. Jake taught Caitlin how to use the compass; I had the task of identifying bugs using the provided guides. It was an entertaining pack and kept us occupied for a while.
