Honeymon state park

So one of the days we were at the beach we thought we would drive down to Florence just for something different. It was about an hour and a half from where we were staying (Newport).

We came across a really cool state park where we had ourselves a nice picnic and did a llittle swimming too.

It was really nice and had a cute little lake with boat rentals. My mom doesn't normally do boats, but she was all about taking Bug out in a paddle boat. So she and Bug had a good time out in the boat while Peanut, Sunshine and I had fun by the shore.

Now let me point out here for those of you have never been around Sunshine. I'll just preface it by saying that she is a bit like a Labrador retriever. If there is water anywhere near her, she has to be waist deep in it. She just can't help herself. Luckily she knows how to swim well.

We were playing in the sand on the shore when she walks casually over to the water. She goes in up to her ankles. Then she steps out a little farther. Now I ask her to not get her clothes wet as I didn't bring swim clothes and they would have to ride home in their wet clothes. Before I could barely get the words out....bam! She was out up to her neck. Dress and all. But having a great time. What can you do?

So needless to say, she rode home in her skivvies. While we hung her dress out the window as we drove. ....Nothing but class here :)

All in all the campground was a lot of fun. It is someplace that I would like to spend a weekend there and camp. If you ever get the chance, go and check it out!

Is it HoneymAn state park? I looked online and it came up with an a instead of an o. Looks like a lot of fun. We'll have to check it out next time we go. Thanks for the heads up.

Oh probably. My spell check didn't yell at me and I was not 100% sure how it was spelled. I would imagine there is only one state park in Florence. Then that would be the one.
