This morning Linda left before Barb and I did. She plans to meet up with us again in a few days. Barb and I left around 10:00 and headed to the Portland area.
We plan to stay at least a couple of days at Bayley's Camping Resort in Scarborough (www.bayleys-camping.com). It is only a half mile from the sandy beach. It has more amenities than any other campground we have visited. There are over six hundred camp sites on 250 acres of coastal countryside. They have their own complimentary beach shuttle runs to Pine Point and Old Orchard Beach. There is an 18-hole mini-golf course, three heated pools, four hot tubs and a poolside restaurant. They offer guided kayak tours of the Little River Estuary and fishing in their three stocked fishing ponds. There are even rentals of bikes, low riders, pedal karts and paddleboats. Because it is their off season, we received a 35 percent discount.
After we had gotten settled in our sites, we drove down to the beach area to look around. As you can imagine, there was one lodging place after another along the way. After we had finished our little exploration, we had dinner at the Clam Bake Restaurant. Then we just drove around this campground to check it out. It's really nice.
We had chosen this campground because it has Wi-Fi service. The first hour is free and, if you need more time, you can buy a card at $5 per day. Barbara bought two cards. Much to our chagrin, though, neither of us was getting a signal at all from our rigs. I called the office and the man told me to bring my laptop in so he could set it up for me. He said he would refund Barb's money. The lady who checked us in did not know that the section where she assigned us does not get a good Wi-Fi signal. As a goodwill gesture for our trouble, they will give us unlimited access free for these two days.
