Saco/Old Orchard Beach KOA

 We arrived at the Saco/Old Orchard Beach KOA on June 24 for a week stay. Our friends Mary Ellen and Jim Chambers met us there. Joe and I met  ME and Jim in May 2011 at Cape Hatteras. They had our itenerary and had planned to surprise us, but I spoiled that (another story).
We had a great time together. We picked up right where we left off and it seemed like no time had gone by since we last saw them. ME and Jim arrived at the KOA first and offered to share their lunch with us.

After a day of shopping, on Tuesday, in Freeport (I really like it there...especially  L.L. Bean), we decided to check out the supper at the KOA. They were grilling burgers and onions...

The KOA store had a wonderful information center. Two racks with directions they had typed for anything you might need or want to do in the area.

These cute little metal stick people were everywhere telling us to "Have a great day", "Enjoy your day",etc or just holding pretty baskets of flowers.

Francie and Nellie or "the girls" as they are so often called were a hit at the park. They love to walk and play with each other and sometimes Francie is a wee bit nosey. It was fun to get to know them better and spend time with them too.
Of course, the doggie park was a huge hit with our pups. It was pea gravel which is great because it rained a few times and there was no mud! Pretty important when you have 16 feet tracking in and out!

The doggie park was plenty big enough for "the spherical object" and the whole park had shade, benches, doggie bags and trash disposal, and 3 large containers for water that were cleaned and filled by the staff during the day.
Nobody was interested in my bubbles! Sally ignored them and walked away, Dover just stood there, Jack only wanted the ball and Wrecks took a rest! Notice the yellow frisbe by the fence? Jack discovered a new game...he would dig the dirt away under the fence just enough to get the ball through so he could run on the outside of the fence to go get it.
This was our first time to visit Maine. What a beautiful place!  We met Nancy...she and her husband are the owners. They live on site and do a great job providing a safe ( it is gated and secure), clean and nice place to call home with lots of extras.
