Days Off, Swimming, and Nature Trails

My summer work schedule gives me Fridays off. This past Friday our two oldest children were also off from work. So to get out of the house on the cheap, we loaded up and drove to Killens Pond to visit the water park. After a detour for water and ice, we drove up Rt 13 to Felton. We arrived at Killens Pond to find several bus loads of kids were also taking advantage of the nice sunny day, putting the water park at capacity. No one else could enter until someone left. It’s about a 45 minute drive from Laurel to Felton so we weren’t running home. We decided to walk one of the trails while we waited for the crowd to shrink.

It’s a long trail so we had some sore feet when all was said and done. The pool felt really nice! A breeze guaranteed that we would not stay in the pool long, so we packed up and drove back to western Sussex’s thriving metropolis. All in all, it was a nice day off.
