On March 14, myself, my daughter Amanda and her children: Kayla (15), Brendan (6), Jake (4), Kayla’s son, Elliot (10 mos.) and Kayla’s lifelong friend, Kaileen (15), drove to Sandusky, Ohio to spend the weekend at Castaway Bay. The cold weather outside was a perfect excuse for wanting to stay inside. The waterpark area of Castaway boasts a tropical 82 degrees. Heaven! We had a lovely room, bayside and the boys were thrilled with the bunk beds. At the front desk we got a copy of The Island Times which lists fun activities for the kiddies throughout the day. We joined Lucy (of Peanuts fame) for dancing, then changed into p.j.s to watch a Peanuts film and have a bedtime story with Snoopy. The girls “dressed” for dinner at TGIF’s (its at one end of the hotel and there is a passageway directly to it so you do not have to go outside), so we let them get their own table. They had so much fun, we suggested they do it the second evening, too. If you are looking for a (not pricey) weekend getaway, seriously consider booking with Castaway. They even have a “payment plan.” How’s that for awesome! This trip was such a success that we are currently planning next “getaway”.
