After Orvis we let the boys walk around Manchester Center for ninety minutes to check out stores and to have lunch in small groups. They got to pick out their own place to eat which they enjoy doing when given the chance. This is only the third time they’ve had this opportunity, the other two being in Bar Harbor.
Our major activity of the day was spending the afternoon at Bromley, a ski resort turned adventure park during the summer. The boys had wristbands giving them unlimited chances to try out about a dozen rides or activities including a climbing wall, a giant swing, trampoline jump thing, space bikes, miniature golf, water slide, etc. But their biggest thrill came from the alpine slide where they come down the mountain in a small sled on rollers. Boys learned how to control the sleds from a manager when we arrived at the park and were soon giving it a try. We did have a couple of spills, but we still have all our boys.
We had a couple of swim sessions to round out our day along with dinner at the Double Hex Restaurant and some frozen custard at a roadside stand to end the day.
It was the end to another long and fun day and you can just click to see the latest photos.
