We are back....
We were all excited to go camping for the Fourth of July. We have always enjoyed going to Wilmington for the Battleship Blast. I is something that we look forward to all year long. When we arrived at the campground, we were very disappointed that they did not have a site quite big enough for our cabin tent. Before I made the reservation, I called and specifically asked if they had a site big enough for us. They said that they did, but they didn't. We ended up finding a spot that was ok. The main problem was the bugs. They were horrible. I understand that when you go camping that you have to put up with bugs, but these bugs were something else. We had to reapply bug spray every hour. You could not put any food down without at least 10 flies landing on it. We ended up spending the entire first night in our tent. The next day we spent the morning playing in the pool. We went to downtown Wilmington after having pb&js for lunch. We spent part of the day walking around all the stores. We ate at the most amazing place.. Front Street Brewery! It was $25 for a family of 5 to eat dinner. It was the best shrimp that I have ever tasted. The fireworks display was spectacular. I would have to say that it was the perfect end to the day.
