Day 8, July 27, 2009
This morning we packed up the camper, loaded everything in the truck, and headed away from Carter's Cove. I'm going to miss that place. It had some scary water flows when it rained and even scarier people walking around, but it had beautiful trees and the old lady said the shower was really nice. Also, don't forget the awesome fireflies!
So the old lady and the man with the fuzzy face rearranged the schedule and let Daddy and Auntie go back to the water park, so I sat in the truck again. We had the camper with us this time, but I wanted to be where I could see out. I wasn't going NEAR that water place! I guess those old folks can be pretty nice sometimes. They told me later they went down long watery slides and around watery rivers. They said the old lady went on a bunch of them, as long as there was a full raft and not some silly tube that made water go up, well, never mind that. They had fun, anyway. I was just as happy to wait in the truck!
Next we drove with the camper to Yorktown. It started lightening right when we got there, so we didn't get to see the battlefield and the driving tour was closed because the storm the night before had knocked down a bunch of trees and branches. There was a small museum at the battlefield that was kind of interesting. There was a model of a ship that had some cool hammocks so Daddy and I took a nap together this time.
We drove through historic Yorktown, but the humans were all tired of walking so we didn't stop. It looked like a bunch of shops and stuff anyway that Daddy would have to say, "I want that!" and the old lady and the man with the fuzzy face would have to say, "NO!" so it's just as well we didn't stop.
The old lady has been wanting to see Chesapeake Bay ever since she read a story about it many years ago, and the man with the fuzzy face is missing water and wants to see about doing some fishing, so we're driving to a little town called Urbanna to stay at a campground called BethPage. It looks like it's near the Bay so the old lady should get her wish, the man with the fuzzy face should get to fish and taste a blue crab cake, and the rest of the humans can rest a little before heading for DC.
I'm going to take another nap here in the truck while we drive. Not sure if we'll have internet, so I'll write again tomorrow. Ta for now!
