Day 493 (Travel Day)
Woke up to a glorious sunny day; the nicest since we’ve been here (wouldn’t ‘ya know it….the day we leave?). The colors appear even more intense against the bright blue sky with a crisp, refreshing 45 degree temperature. It was nice to be able to take a leisurely pace in breaking down camp since the place basically was shut down. Like clockwork, the “worker guys” were hard at their tasks right at 9:00 a.m., tending to their winterizing chores. So, I thought I’d make them a batch of pumpkin/chocolate chip cookies (thankyou Trader Joe’s) to boost their day and to thank them for the lovely hospitality in letting us stay here this late in the season. We told Butch we’d be back to experience the summer fun at Waterbury Campground sometime in the near future.
Since the New England states are so beautiful, especially this time of year, we’re thrilled we have another week booked in Southern Vermont in the town of Dorset, at Dorset RV Park. We were anticipating another quiet, empty campground when we arrived. Quite the opposite. Nearly every space was full so my guess is they are one of the few RV parks still open. After checking in, we were instructed to drive through site #5 to just pull directly into site #6. “Oh…….I like site #5 better”, I said to Jeff which he agreed. I walked back to the office and kindly asked if we could be moved since we were staying a week. Score!!! She rearranged a few other upcoming guests to make it work, and for that we were most appreciative.
Oh my goodness….the temptation of chickens!! 🐓This should go over well with a dog who is not used to sharing her space with a chicken. Talk about restraint. The coup for the resort is only steps from our campsite, and it appeared they were enjoying their afternoon of freedom as they wandered through the campground. Like most RV parks, they’re strict about leash rules, so once again Sadie will be adjusting from the freedom she had at the last place. As we’ve mentioned before, RV parks are very nice when you want to mix in a few more amenities into your lodging. But campgrounds are more our style, which is what this one feels like in terms of its setup in a forest setting. It feels more like a campground but with loaded amenities…..wi-fi, laundry facilities just steps from our campsite, full hookups (water, sewer, electric), and doughnuts and coffee on Sundays. We’re in! Oh, and they receive guest mail. Bring on the Christmas shopping!! 🛍 🧑🎄
