Today, I'll go back to early September and our Seminole Campground Reunion.....
Cape Cod (Sandwich, Massachusetts)
Several months ago, one of our Florida camping friends arranged a late summer reunion. Our plan is to meet at Cape Cod for a few days and then move over to the Mystic Seaport area in Connecticut. Wayne and I are looking forward to seeing the folks we met last year at North Fort Myers.
Reaching the Cape a few days early, Wayne and I settled in near Sandwich, Massachusetts to await the arrival of the others. We're at Peter's Pond Campground and we like the set-up here.
|Our campsite at Peter's Pond was perfect! Shady and private. What a great find!|
We had visited Cape Cod many years ago and toured the area by car so we won't make the long drive out to Providencetown this time. Instead, we enjoy some of places we didn't explore back then. We did take a day trip to Falmouth and investigated the auto ferry to Martha's Vineyard. The seashore visit was especially nice.

The seashore is to the immediate right of the roadway.
- English colonists settled Falmouth in 1660 and named it for Falmouth, Cornwall, England.
- In 1859, author, poet and lyricist Katharine Lee Bates was born at Falmouth. She wrote America the Beautiful.

|Ozzie smells every single thing he sees at the beach. Lexie does too.|
|How nice to meet up with friends from afar!|
After giving Dale a day to relax his aching back, the four of us took a ride to Hyannis Port for lunch and a bit of sightseeing. Naturally another visit to the shore was in the making.
|Congratulations to Dale and Linda. |
New full-time RV'ers!
On Monday, Dale and Linda and Wayne and I will relocate to Scusset Beach State Reservation and welcome the others to the reunion.

|This is our campsite. Dale and Linda are parked directly behind us. That's their rig in the photo center.|
|Charlie, Joyce and their son Tom along with Mary, Ken, Fran, Dale, |
Wayne and I don't know who's on the other side of Dale.
And so our time at Scusset Beach ended.
On To Connecticut!
|First night at Odetah -- wiener cookout!|

Every dinner at Odetah Camp was followed by a nice warm campfire, a few outrageous stories and plans for the next day's activities and meals, of course. Even Zoey, Fran and Mary's little Spaniel, enjoyed the campfire.
|Mary insists that Fran keep his loose fitting shorts legs tucked away from view of the camera. |
Oh heck! Mary!

Being the good friends they are, Dale, Charlie and Ken pitched in to try to assist. Adding insult to injury, our 18 month old DirecTV receiver died. A new one was ordered and received but unfortunately, DirecTV sent the wrong receiver and it will not work on our system. Drat!
|Searching the skies for a solution to our satellite dilemma.|
|Deep in the foliage, Dale and Ken scour the sky for the signal.|
|But alas! Nothing works. Even Ken's portable was set up, but was not compatible. |
|Retreating in defeat.|
