Although there is only one saucer-themed playground equipment attraction here (and in the whole town, for that matter), the Boys still beg to go to what THEY refer to as the “UFO Park” – also known as Cape County North Park, west highway side (the side with the graveyard and the peacocks).
The “Old UFO” is worn and rusty – and flakes off more and more colorful paint chips each season. But, the boys love their flying saucer – mostly because they always seem to have it to themselves, as few frequent this park section that sports just one rusty piece of equipment. That’s fine by us, though. We enjoy our alone-time with our very-own Martian Spaceship. Maybe the Parks Department will let us adopt it and paint it? Gotta check into that.
Fun is always had by all at the UFO Park. Photo by Michael Huntington – Spring 2015.
