A Camping First

These days most campgrounds prefer that you make reservations in advance so I do. They always ask how many adults, how many children, do we have pets? I answer two adults, no children, one cat that I walk on a leash. That way, if the campground owner has a dog they allow to roam free (and there have been some campgrounds like that) the person on the phone can warn me of that. Fine.

We arrived in Rhode Island on Monday at our reserved site and I was handed a map of the campground and a brochure upon check-in. We were directed to our site and after we were all set up and had eaten lunch I settled back to browse the brochure, luxuriating in the air conditioning since it was ninety degrees outside and very, very humid. As a matter of fact, it was a three tee shirt day for Denny--he soaked through two shirts breaking camp in Massachusetts and setting up here. So imagine my surprise when I read rules #3 and 17 (see the brochure below, clicking to enlarge it.)

And yes, we are running our air conditioner and yes, I am walking the cat on a leash. And no, we haven't been kicked out....yet.

We're still laughing about this. Told you it was blog worthy [just for being weird!]

Have fun golfing today.

They allow dogs but they can't go to the bathroom while there. Mighty doesn't have that kind of control and hanging him over the toilet has never worked.
That is really weird.
