We toured around Huntsville while they fixed it and had lunch at the Boston Pizza on the waterfront. What a gorgeous area!
Algonquin Trails Camping Resort. I'm not sure I would call it a resort but it was a beautiful wilderness property.

As usual the kids headed straight to the swimming pool. This pool is advertised as a headed pool but that is a little misleading. Because the pool has plastic like a greenhouse all around it, it heats up like a sauna inside and the hot air heats the pool. The temperature IN the pool was a constant 68 while we were there. The owner was doing some welding work around the base of the walls to fix supports while we were there but he really needs to fix some of the broken plastic walls. It looked very run down. There also was no seating inside the pool area except for a small bench. Everyone always sat and watched from outside the pool.
The playground was quite old too so the girls spent more time exploring here.
Sierra became quick friends with the owners son as they both love catching frogs, and toads and all critters.
|Can you spot the snake? Yes they did catch him for a bit!|
|This toad was a very fast hopper|
|But in the end no match for sierra|
One morning we were so surprised to see a turtle walking through our campsite. Simon, the owners son put him in the little pond up by their house.
We spent a couple days at Dwight Beach. It was about a 5 minute drive from the campground. A very nice little local beach. We spent our time here swimming and fishing. Simon joined us on one day.
Sierra was the queen of catching fish this day. She reeled them in like crazy, let them go...over and over.
Aayla tried and tried and tried to catch a fish...
She was persistent. Day after day, determined. She sat and sat and sat trying. Eventually she did but by the time I got close to her to take a picture, the fish had been released.

At the campground we biked around, including the old unused back portion of the park. Half the park isn't even used and is all overgrown.
There was a huge storm one night and the next day my little puddle jumper was spotted jumping in every puddle she could find.
|The beginning of the trail...it got worse|
I even spotted a monkey in the trees one day.
The girls made many friends here...who said living on the road would mean our kids would be unsocialised??? My girls meet and interact with way more people living on the road then they did when we lived in a regular house. A wonderful benefit of full time travel.
