Vacation summary part 1!
We arrived at the Watkins Glen KOA around 4pm on Monday.
We were assigned campground 103 so we got all setup.
Macy, of course, quickly made friends with the people in the cottage next to us. They were from Ontario, which was easily noticeable by their accents! LOL
We took it easy the first night and checked the place out. They had a great 44 foot pirate ship playground for the kids! Can you believe that I didn't get any pictures of that? By the second day, Macy knew the route there (which was about a minute from our tent) so she would take Jack over and they'd play. We gave her one of our family radios, so we kept in contact with her the whole time.
Our first meal was hot dogs and baked beans! We kept it simple since it was the first night.
The one really great thing about going camping is that I don't have to cook! Chris is in charge of the meals! Can you believe that we were the only people there that made their food over the campfire? Everyone was using propane stoves. We have one of them for backup! We actually had to use it on Tuesday night to make our corn on the cob, since their wasn't enough room on the campfire grill.
I didn't sleep too bad the first night, it wasn't good though! Train tracks were across the street and a train would run through every night around 1am. Imagine our surprise the first night with the loud whistle! That was okay though, it was that darn barking dog that was awful!! Every single night that dog would bark, bark, bark!!! I cannot believe the owners just let it do that! UGH!! The second day, new tent campers pitched behind us, the guy snored loudly, so we had that for the last 2 nights, which wasn't too bad! I'll take that over that annoying dog!
Tuesday we headed down the road to the Watkins Glen state park and climbed the 800+steps to the top of the gorge. It was beautiful, but so hard to get decent pictures. I was worrying the whole time that Jack was going to cataplut himself off the wall and into the gorge. That boy has no fear!!
Once we got to the top, we rode the shuttle bus back to the bottom and went shopping in the gift shop. Macy, Jack and I got sweatshirts since I forgot to pack some, and Chris got a t-shirt.
We hit the grocery store on the way home and got shish kabobs and steaks for supper. We were starving and bought way more than we needed, but it was yummy!!
Thanks for reading!! Final installment in a few days!!
Have a great week everyone!
