I had only ever been here on my bicycle so I ended up parking at the top of the hill and so we had to walk all the way down.
As we continued down the hill, we came across parking lot #1 which made me glad that we parked up top after seeing how small it was and watching another vehicle have a tough time get out. And then I saw parking lot #2 which is the one here and I became really annoyed with myself. Thankfully the girls were not too upset with me.....at least not yet. This parking lot is a very very short walk to the "sandy beach" area of the park.
The girls were hungry so we ate lunch first. Again, another lame picnic lunch on my part haha. Actually I didn't even have a lunch. I had spent most of the morning looking for Finley's wallet that I forgot to pack my lunch and then i had to go get the girls from camp and had no time!!
Finley checking out the water. It was cold so she barely put a foot in before heading back to the blanket to relax she said. Tough life being almost 8.
The last time we were here, it was Penelope who ventured out first and stayed in the longest and this time it was no different. Here she is mid skip.
This was the hill we had to walk up. Our car was behind that power pole, well maybe a half a block behind that pole. It was a long walk up and Penelope did ask if they could just wait in the middle and I go get the car. I told her that wasn't an option and that we were almost there. I did notice a lady with 2 kids and loads of gear getting ready to walk down the hill. I asked her if she walked here or drove and she had indeed driven so I saved her from the mistake I had made and told her about the parking lot at the bottom. Her kids were probably much happier then mine were when they left. To make up for my mistake, I did treat us all to slurpees on the way home.
We had a great time here and we look forward to coming back before the girls head back to school in August but next time I will definitely park in the right parking lot :)
