If we go at end of August we will go for 7 nights stay at BC. If we go at end of October we will go for 5 nights stay at Swan/Dolphin. Pros of August: longer trip BC!! Stormalong Bay Cons of August DH is worried about: crowd levels heat rain Pros of October: nicer weather longer hours? Can go to MNSSHP cheaper trip (which isn't too much of an issue)-room will be comped Cons of October: DS will have to miss 3 days of middle school in his 1st year. Swan/Dolphin instead of BC more crowded then end of August? shorter trip DH will not be with us in Parks for 2 days - business trip If we go in August I'm going to go again in October with DH to conference.
