This summer I discovered a new favorite place, Fairy Stone State Park. My husband and I took the dog and went camping there. Now, my idea of camping is probably different from that of a lot of people. In my world, camping involves staying in the trees by a lake, just like in most other people’s worlds, but then mine veers to the right. I’m not a tent kind of girl. I like four walls, a door with a lock, indoor plumbing, and air conditioning. At Fairy Stone, that’s exactly what I got. We stayed in a tiny cabin that was described as being one room. The living room did contain the bed, but the cabin also had a tiny little kitchen and a large bathroom with a huge shower. Not only did it have a refrigerator, stove, and microwave, but it also had a very nice air conditioner. Good thing, it was in the mid-nineties when we were there. Being in the middle of the woods, there was no television or cell phone reception, another plus! My husband took a tiny tv and dvd player so that he could catch up on a couple of movies. I, of course, took two new books with me. We spent four days sleeping late, eating when and what we wanted (pizza and brownies, of course), and walking Tucker in the woods. And that, guys, is my summer experience with camping. Will I do it again? You betcha!
