Hard to believe that I waited almost 3 years before taking advantage of a "sanity refresher," but that is exactly what happened. Believe me when I say that my sanity has been sorely tested over the last 3 years. It is a testament to my extremely hard head and stubbornness, that I am reasonably sane today (of course, it depends on who you talk to.)
This past Sunday we visited the Dennis Point Camp Grounds in St. Mary's County, Maryland.
Here is a photo journal of our visit ...
|Arriving at the camp grounds the first thing we saw was this Pirate Ship.|
The kids must love this. In fact, I plan to climb around in it
my next visit. :-)
The street names are themed: like Rockfish Lane and Oyster Lane.
My son and daughter-in-law are on Saltwater Lane..
|Arriving at the Shanks camp ground site.|
|Meathead welcoming us to his "other" home.|
What he is really thinking is,
"Gram, you are taking me home, right?"
|Much of our day was spent just "hanging out" on the front porch deck.|
(with a glass of wine in our hands)
It is really lovely wooded area with many beautiful views.
|The area is well kept: pleasant and inviting.|
My son says the new owners have made many improvements.
|Bird house and water decorations in his front yard.|
The birds were busy there all day.
|Of course the most interesting thing is the way the camper|
living space is organized. Left: couch covered for the dogs .
Center: dining area. Right: part of kitchen.
Couch and dining area convert to sleeping spaces.

|Another shot of the kitchen. To the right is the fridge and the freezer.|
|Bedroom with a queen size bed - and me in the mirror taking|
Not shown: The shower, toilet and bathroom sink are located between the bedroom and kitchen areas.
|We had a cook out! My son did the honors.|
I have no idea where he learned to do that.
We never cooked out at home. My husband wasn't interested
and I didn't want to inside and outside cooking duties.
|Time spent with family and friends is priceless.|
Matt is opening a bottle of champagne. Notice the way everyone is
standing back - those corks can be lethal.
|Sadly, the day came to an end and we headed home.|
But next time, we will stay for an overnight!
Refreshing sanity needs more than one day.

Oh yes, we will be back.
