We left this beautiful spot close to Provincetown yesterday morning…
And hit the road toward New York City. We stopped at a Walmart along the way to pick up a few supplies, make a quick sandwich, and walk the dogs. We decided we weren’t going to make it all the way to New York, so I called and switched our reservations to Sunday and Monday night.
We passed through parts of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island yesterday and started looking for a spot for the night when we hit Connecticut. Apparently, people aren’t adventuresome here. There didn’t appear to be anything at all, until I spotted something off the exit we were about ready to pass by. Kip managed to make the turn and we drove the eight perilous miles up narrow roads to what looked like a pretty nice park. We drove right up to the gate…that didn’t open. That’s when we noticed the little sign that said, “See you in 1919.” Now what? We were faced with unhooking the car, and trying to back SeeYa out of a pretty tough spot. We spent a couple of minutes wondering who was to blame for this predicament when we saw a guy in a truck drive by. He was inside the gate. He stopped to dump some garbage in a trash bin, and I jumped out to catch him, hoping he would be able to find a way to get us through the gate so we could turn around and leave.
Fifteen minutes later, he did just that, and we got out of there and headed back to the highway. About an hour later, we were considering the prospect of finding a place to boondoggle when I found another spot on the internet. Their website said they were open all year, so we took the exit. This time we called before we got there. (You might have to hit us over the head with a board, but sometimes we learn.)
On the third try, a guy answered and said to come on in. And here we are. It’s Sunday morning and we’re preparing to head out! First, we’ll stop at this quaint little restaurant for a delightful breakfast.
If you have been inclined to say a prayer for us, now might be the time to do it! This place we’re going to sounds like our best option to be able to see the sights and take care of the dogs and cat. The reviews stink, but it’s all about choices. It’s within walking distance to a short ferry ride to the city and we’re supposed to be able to see the Statue of Liberty from our camping spot which in the pictures looks like a parking lot.
Stay tuned! Kip and Mary camping in New York City could get interesting! Gotta go!
