Killens Pond State Park, Felton, Delaware

All this time, I never got around to going inside the water park, despite how often I drive past it. It just didn’t seem like the kind of place you went without kids, and having been there, I think that impression was valid – it’s not that you can’t, it’s just that you’d feel a little silly doing it. I borrowed some kids today and finally went. :)

I never did get around to taking a wider shot of the pool with my real camera, since I left it in the bag until I was sure I was done leaving the bag relatively unsupervised, but here’s one I took with my phone when I first got there. It was awesome fun.

We saw these little guys throughout the weekend, but the most amazing sight was when I took a little side trail and the entire earth erupted in front of me. There were hundreds of them, all headed toward the water – I assume they’d been sunning themselves on the rarely-used trail before I disturbed them.

The photos of my husband’s hand are blurry and poorly focused because he doesn’t follow directions very well. All I wanted for him to do was get at least 6 ft away (I had my zoom lens on) and stay still, and he would do neither. ;)

We made an attempt at a letterboxing hunt, but were unsuccessful. While we were at it, though, we had a nice walk from the campgrounds over to the Island Trail (and beyond), and then stopped to rent a pedal boat and take it across the pond for my very pregnant sister and her husband. :)
