On the way home from the DockDogs World Championship, we did an over night stay at Natural Bridge / Lexington KOA in Natural Bridge, VA.

We had a very nice stay at this campground. If you have never seen the Natural Bridge, this is definitely a trip to add to your travel wish list!
We parked our motor home at the Clinton / Knoxville North KOA when we arrived in Knoxville for the DockDogs World Championship.
We are finally here!
Tennessee is gorgeous!
This may have been the most fun we’ve ever had at a campground!
On the way out to Knoxville, TN for the DockDogs World Championship, we stopped for an overnight stay at Wytheville KOA.
Not only was this campground super dog friendly, it had a snack bar, an arcade, batting cages, AND a bowling alley!

Margarita got excited to see a few other “doggies” she could play with! HaHa!

Settling in for the night…
We were able to do a campfire before settling in!
Taking a walk around the campground before we headed back on the road to Tennessee:

First time crossing railroad tracks
Each time we stopped to spend the night on our way to Knoxville, we changed the “miles to go” sign on our camper!
Getting ready to get back on the road… but not before a selfie with HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCH!

We found a rare time where my mom, my aunt, and us all had a free weekend, so we decided to try Massey’s Landing in Milsboro, DE. None of us had ever been there before, but we had heard great things about this campground – and it truly was very pretty there.

This was an unusually cold weekend in September, but we made the best of it.
We enjoyed playing Scrabble…
…And a walk on the beach:
Most of all, we enjoyed our time with family!
We had a “dock diving free” weekend last August , so we had the rare opportunity to camp with family. We chose the Delaware Water Gap / Pocono Mountain KOA .
Our campsite was awesome, but there were power lines running right through the campground. It turned out not being a big deal, but definitely was something we were not used to seeing at a campground.
Margarita enjoyed walking around the campground with her cousin James. We bought James his own little “Rita leash” that we attach along with the leash I am holding so that he can feel like he is walking her.
We enjoyed the relaxing weekend with family. It was nice not to have to get up early, or have any set plans for the weekend!
Overall, despite the first impression we had with the power lines running through the campground, we had a great time playing miniature golf, taking a hay ride, exploring around the campground, and just relaxing!
Brian captured one of my most favorite shots of Margarita and me sitting at the campfire on our campsite:

We had a relaxing weekend of walking, hanging out at our campsite, and playing board games.
We were lucky enough to enjoy our Anniversary dinner outside:
This was one of our rare camping trips where we didn’t have a dock diving event. It was nice to relax, and not have anywhere to go!
