Most arrived early Friday and set up in the Saffari Field While Mike went home to get the family, George and the others set up the rest of Mike’s site with much “Caution” tape.The rest arrived and we had fellowship with pie and pastry by the Fire
On Saturday morning we had coffee and past our Jack O Lantern sized pumpkins for carving. Afterward some went to the Winery, local war museums, and Mystic Aquarium while others enjoyed the peace of the campground. At night we had our pot luck traditional dinner. (Yum! Yum!) We had a Jack O Lantern lighting with Joyce singing to us. Our wagon master Mike was the judge and gave the winning prize to Joyce for the “most original” . (the rest of us used kits) She won the candy corn and $5.00. (we still do not know if Roger got his cut) We enjoyed the campfire and had S’mores.
On Sunday morning we filled up on donuts while photos were taken of our new Kilowatt flag hand sewn by Shelly Nash. (Thank you Shelly) Some left and Will be looking forward to the spring compost. Seven other families stayed for the third night into Columbus Day. During the day several families used the GPS instructions to the town Corn Maze. Oh, that is they should have used the GPS instructions to the corn maze. Others enjoyed the campground. We had fire popped popcorn by Jell-Burton at night. The entertainment was cheap but Full of laughs by the “Irish Twins” that is Bob Bldwell and Jeff-Burton. We never did get that recipe for their famous “Irish Tea” The kids played hide and go seek.
On Monday morning we all had coffee and our final good-bye’s. While packing up we had Sparky doing dog tricks for us flying over a stick and jumping picnic tables. What a dog Jerry!
We had great fall weather the whole weekend with partly sunny skies and in the 70’s during the daytime. The foliage was beautiful. The coffee pot was passed on to the spring
