Jun 5, 2019 - Day 20 - Nickerson Beach Campground, Lido Beach, Long Island, NY

Since it's a travel day (and it could be a long one), I thought I'd do the blog tonight. I uploaded several pictures from the stay in Gloucester plus some shots from yesterday at the beach. Cloudy this morning but not as breezy. LJ and I make our way to the dog park about 0630, but I'm disappointed that there are no other participants. I try to get LJ to sprint and chase a Frisbee, but he's content to just sniff around. He does jog around some, but it's nowhere near the workout he had yesterday when the other dog was there. I guess I'm...

2019 Summer Big Trip

Jun 4, 2019 - Day 19 - Nickerson Beach Campground, Lido Beach, Long Island, NY

LJ and I head out on our morning stroll about 6:45. Cool, clear morning, but there's a stiff breeze so I instantly start regretting not throwing on my windbreaker. My cousin's husband Rick had mentioned that he thought there was a dog run at the west end of Nickerson Beach, so we head out of the RV park, across a huge parking lot, and sure enough, we find a large dog run. There's a young couple in there with their pointer, and the two dogs chase each other around at high speed for at least 20 minutes. The run is big enough (almost an acre I...

2019 Summer Big Trip

Jun 3, 2019 - Day 18 - Nickerson Beach Campground, Lido Beach, Long Island, NY

After some heavy rain last night, the morning is clear and crisp. I take LJ on a long walk; it's a travel day and there's no telling how long he'll be cooped up in the RV once we hit traffic on Long Island. We want to leave about 8:30. I figure that will be late enough to miss the Boston morning rush hour and hopefully be past New York City before their evening rush hour starts. Since the RV park is on such a slope, and we have to go about two miles on very narrow roads to get to the highway out of Gloucester, we decide the best plan is to...

2019 Summer Big Trip

Sep 5, 2008 - Long Island

We drove from Cape Cod to New London in Connecticut where we got the ferry across to Orient on Long Island. It was an hour and a half trip which was lovely. Very warm but windy. From Orient, we drove to Lido Beach where we were staying just by the beach. The weather when we arrived was great and we had stopped off in Mystic Seaport on the way to the ferry. The RV Park was ok but we arrived fairly late as the roads here don’t seem to want RV’s on them and have height restrictions, as we found out!!! We came onto the South Parkway and there...
