Here are a few notes from our time here so far:
Dale & I drove out here, stopping to visit friends, and seeing what weird places we could find to stretch our legs at. How about a fireworks tent?
|$1400 fireworks kit. We did NOT buy it!|
The trip out here was uneventful, except for one trailer tire malfunction.

|Dale on the Sandy Cove Pier|
Then we all explored Elk Neck State Park, near Sandy Cove, with our friend Beth-Anne.
|Deanna, Deb & Beth-Anne, our friend.|
|Collecting driftwood for the craft shop|
|Damming up the stream|
Sandy Cove has so much to offer the guests here, so we took advantage of much of it during the week before guests arrived, including a 9-hole disc golf course.

We decided to check out the premier of the final Harry Potter movie, but DIDN'T go opening night. When we DID go, however, we purchased the 3D glasses, and it was very cool.

Until next time...
