082915pod01Sam wanted to do her first 5k this summer, and we choose the Color Run in Greensboro.

082915pod02We have not started, and already “colored”

082915pod03And we are off…..

082915pod04 082915pod05 082915pod06So the run is broken up by stations where strangers throw colored corn starch on you.

Photo A Day Project 2015 (photo by Jay Capers)Each morning at 6:45 AM, a garbage truck visited the dumpsters about a 100 yards from our spot, this morning after our wake up call, Deb and I talked, my daughter was in pain, couldn’t spent anymore time in the sun, it was time to pull the plug… we packed up, make the 11am check out and got $60 back… and headed home. 10 hours later (lots of stops for dog, a picnic at a Sonic, etc) we arrived home.

Some thoughts: I would never stay at this KOA again, tent sites next to road (see above) much dirtier than any other KOA I have seen, the toilets were always clogged (men’s and women’s, twice, I used their plunger with no luck… glad I have a Thetford portable toilet. I loved the beach and would go back in a heartbeat in the spring, but want to camp at a state park. ANASTASIA SP has beach access, FAVER-DYKES SP is 15 miles south, one thing, this park closes it’s gates at sunset…. we were concerned about wanting to be out later than that, but in hindsight……

I liked the history part, but the dog makes it difficult, we left her in the truck in a parking garage with the back glass open and the fan blowing, but were worried, so I rushed through the Castillo de San Marcos, and after that, we each skipped a site to sit with the dog… at least that saves money. Can’t wait to get back in the woods…. Deb had forgotten what not camping in the woods was like!
