Kids helping Grandpa Stead decorate the golf cart for the camps annual July 4th parade...
All and all a great vacation...timed perfectly to miss the terrible storms and loss of electric at home...
Below are some random photos of the trip
our vacation...including the house rental:
We paid 550.00 for the week. Everything (linens and towels too) provided except heat for the spa...we paid an extra 75.00 when we arrived. Would recommend it to anyone! Gated community. Private Pool/Spa out our back door, LOTS of room for everyone to spread out and have their own space.
Disney World Tickets:
Best price from this site and they were honored with no problem. NOTE: snap a picture of the back of your tickets when you get them...4 of ours went through the washer and we were advised by Disney officials that this is the easiest way for them to find the numbers to replace them...
Jetty Park, Cape Canaveral, FL is a county park with restrooms, campground, lifeguards and snack bar. We arrived about 5:00 on a Sunday and the cruise ships leave from the canal right beside the beach...kids loved watching them leave! 10.00 to park is a little steep, but it was a very nice beach! Took us about 1.5 hours to drive...toll roads but traffic was light.
Blowing Rock NC:
Rumor has it that this is the town Jan Karon's "Mitford" series is based on. Dad's cabin is close to Blowing Rock as well as our creekin' spot.
Julian Price Memorial Park, Picnic Area: Boone Fork Trail: Access is gained by crossing the wooden footbridge in Price Park Picnic Area (milepost 296.4). NOTE: we only hike this half way...turning right in the picnic area...the hardest part is crossing the big rock right before the swimming area...but we did it with ages 2-73 in our group.
