It has been a bit of a bittersweet day as we began the demolition of our old Picnic Shelter For anyone that has been following us for a while, you will remember that our Campground began as a Family Farm. If you are new to this Blog click over to the History of our Property page to learn more. We knew that the building was nearing the end of it’s life which is why we did the Gazebo addition to the Rec Building last summer. This Spring it was now time to complete the last phase of that addition and tear down the shelter. In the years as a farm, the ‘picnic shelter’ was actually a machine shed. That shed was the last piece of visible evidence of the Campground’s former life. It was the only thing left to remind us of where we began. There are still a few little reminders here and there but most people would walk by and not even notice them. We will always remember where the walkway in the ‘barn’ aka Rec Building was, but it is now hidden under the new flooring. As much as we tell ourselves that it was time to move forward and replace the shelter it still brings a little bit of sadness to drive in the lane and see the big empty space.
And so ends the transformation from Farm to Campground.
