Wow! We are so impressed with the Croatan National Forest! The sites are wooded, spacious & beautiful! Nice to find our type of campground so close to home. This is our first weekend with our dearest Finley & we were thrilled she wanted to camp! Chuck steered us to this campground & we could not be happier. Forest Service camping may be the best yet!
Finley helped us do a quick set up & then we were off to explore. The mile & half walk through the marsh & pines seemed promising & not overly exerting. Maggie & Finley had a blast running, exploring, & working up a good appetite. The walk reminded us of our time in Skidaway near Savannah!
Our campsite was wooded enough to gather firewood & pine cones for the highly anticipated s'mores event! General running, racing & playing pet shop occupied us for most of the afternoon. Whew!
Papa made his usual great burgers on the grill & Finley contributed her favorite - raw broccoli with ranch dressing. Pretty good. Believe it or not, I cannot remember the last time I had a s’more. Once a decade will probably do it for me! Finley seemed to have an endless desire for another!
My favorite part of the evening was sharing art time with Finley. She enjoyed some of my new materials & techniques for coloring. Papa enjoyed the down time. :)
