North East Roadtrip Weekend – Cape Cod

Three Times the Cute - Cutest Dogs Ever

Sunset Pilgrim Monument, Provincetown

Cape Cod was last weekend’s Roadtrip destination. FINALLY! We have been trying to book Cape Cod all Summer. Turns out some campers informed us Cape Cod is booked a year in advance! We booked a “Premium Site” at Bayview Campground. This campground is simply wow! Huge spots, great amenities and activities, THREE pools! The staff were lovely and they are very pet friendly. They have an awesome dog park that is huge as well as a dirt track dog walk that follows the outline of the campground. We had a great time here! The only drawback is the price. Seriously people, you need to remember we are renting a plot of dirt from you, not a hotel room. For comparison, we paid $90 a night. You can stay at the Sheraton for $159 and have a hotel room and a pool… camping prices are getting a little ridiculous my friends!

Three Times the Cute - Cutest Dogs Ever

The humans left me to guard their shoes

There was much to do in Cape Cod. We spent a day in Providencetown and Dad & the kids climbed the Pilgrim Monument while Mum found a shady spot to wait with the 4 legged monsters. More detail on that day in a previous post.

The first day we wandered about merrily. In Sandwhich we found a great bridge to jump off. Then stopped for clam chowder and ice-cream at Hallet’s Store. The owner was WONDERFUL. AQ left her retainer there and he found it out of the trash for us and left it where we could return to get it an hour after closing. We are very grateful! The ice-cream was delicious and the clam chowder was very good too.

The National Seashore Beaches are dog friendly! So the Q boys and dogs spent the rest of the day there while Mum & AQ drove almost 2 hours to retrieve the retainer then return to the rest of the Qs. Aaaahhh there is always an adventure with the Qs! lol. We returned in time to watch the sunset at Nauset Lighthouse which was a treat.





The final day was very hot, too hot for the dogs to be in the car waiting while the Qs jumped the bridge so the Qs went to the bridge while Mum and the monsters checked out the really awesome dog park. We stayed until the monsters were too hot and tired to move then retreated for some pleasant quiet time in Winston!

We cooked a lovely meal in Winston including the much begged for oreo cookie smoothie. Seriously, they get fruit smoothies and campfire marshmallows every day but there is always something new to nag for lol!

Three Times the Cute - Cutest Dogs EverThe Qs split up again for the evening. Mum, ZQ and the 4 legged beasties headed for an local, not very well known spot to watch the sunrise while Dad, AQ & EQ went off on a long bike ride. I almost hate to mention The Knob, Falmouth as it is a little known spot which meant we almost had a private beach to ourselves to watch the sunset! What an amazing find! We walked through gorgeous scenery with the dogs (yay somewhere dogs are allowed in Massachusetts!) to a quiet and truly gorgeous spot that has breathtaking views of the setting sun.

Monday we had an appointment in New York City so we had to fly home, driving right past NYC in Winston, drop of beasties, then drive back into New York City! Thankfully the traffic Gods were smiling on us and really gave us a pretty easy time of it considering just how much driving was done. Mum likes to put fruit tea bags in her water bottles to add some flavor, AQ helping out made Mum’s water bottle and at 3am when Mum still couldn’t sleep Mum discovered AQ had accidentally put the caffeinated tea in. THAT explains the odd taste… lucky Mum didn’t overdose considering all the coffee she drinks!









And we’re off!

First stop Snow Shoe Truck Stop

Winston’s first day has begun! We got off to a slow start. It’s not easy getting 3 kids and 3 dogs packed up and loaded! One cycle with my teenager went as follows “where’s my nook?” “right here” “no that’s my brothers” “where’s my nook?” “right here” “no that’s my brothers” “where’s my nook?” “right here” “no that’s my brothers” and on and on for 20 minutes before I finally turned it on and showed him that is was indeed his missing nook. Of course the dogs were all underfoot making sure we didn’t leave them behind. I’m lucky I left with all bones safe after tripping so often!

Mum and the dogs ended up sleeping the first 100 miles. First stop the “Snow Shoe Truck Stop“. The truck stop was amazing for a truck stop! Very clean! They even had showers and washing machines!

And we’re half way to Cleveland!

The Great Divide Campground Review

The Great Divide Campground Review

Winston & Friends visited The Great Divide Campground in New Jersey in early June 2015. We were blessed with a lovely weekend weather wise. Just warm enough to go swimming but not so hot we needed the air-conditioning on in Winston.

Our first impression was how helpful and nice the staff were at The Great Divide Campground. Most importantly they are very pet friendly. Bring all your 4 legged fur friends they are welcome at The Great Divide Campground! They even have a dog park!

 

The Great Divide Campground Review

Party time Black Light Disco

The facilities at the campground were well cleaned although a little small and cramped. The pool gets a lot of use so the toilets can gather a line but nothing too frustrating. Remember you’re on vacation so chillax and take your time.

Our campsite was a decent size. After finding out we were traveling with three dogs the staff kindly recommended a campsite near the dog park. There was a lovely breeze and the mosquito pests were not unbearable. The

campsite was large enough to set up our badminton net. We had a wonderful campfire at night. Saturday night we enjoyed a “Black light disco” at the barn. The band was fabulous and the night was filled with dancing and good cheer.

The kids biked, played games, fished, hiked, kayaked (available for free as long as you put on a life jacket!), swam, roasted marshmallows and were entertained enough that we never heard the ominous “I’m bored”.

From their website:

“It’s camping your way—just a stone’s throw from the city.

The Great Divide Campground lies in rural Sussex County on Phillips Road, which was named after the area’s first owners. Acquired by the Christie family in the mid-1950s, the property operated as Hazy Vale Dairy Farm until the mid-1960s. In 1963, the family converted part of the farm to a day beach club, later developing campsites to meet the growing tourist demand. As the campground expanded, a manmade lake and other amenities were added—turning Hazy Vale Farm into Green Valley Beach.

In 2012, Green Valley Beach was purchased by Carmine and Lisa Torella—and renamed The Great Divide Campground. Committed to retaining the area’s natural beauty, the Torellas have updated and refurbished the property to provide the region’s best camping and recreation opportunities. Here at The Great Divide, families of all ages gather to enjoy scenic views, accommodating service—and an outdoor experience that’s refreshing and unforgettable.
