Leaving North Carolina heading towards Albuquerque

When we left Atlantic City, we went up into New York state to visit some friends. Had a wonderful time, and while we were there, went to the Rhinebeck Air Show.

After New York, we went back through Pennsylvania for a few days - really enjoyed the farmer's markets and fresh fruits and vegetables. From there, we went to an RV park east of Richmond, Virginia. We drove around in Williamsburg and Glocester.

Then, to a park near Lynchburg, Virginia. We spent one day at Appomattox and enjoyed the National Park.

This is a photo of Gerald on the porch of the McLean house, where Lee & Grant agreed to the surrender.

Next, was an RV park in North Carolina. We have just been driving through the area and enjoying the small towns nearby.

Here are some recent photos of the dogs.

We are leaving tomorrow, heading towards Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta with a stopover for a few days in Amarillo.

Near Atlantic City for a few days

We are at Thousand Trails Chestnut Lake park, a few miles from Atlantic City, NJ. There are lots of mosquitoes here and we have to spray every time we walk outside.

We drove to Atlantic City on Friday to see the casinos and on Saturday, spent some time with some new Greyhound friends who were having a Meet N Greet at a Petsmart in a town north of here.

The weather has been good and we are enjoying the area - first time for both of us to visit New Jersey.

Milton Hershey Museum

We visited the Hershey Museum downtown and it was very interesting. I recommend it to everyone.

Chocolate World is an amusement park and we didn't go there. We also didn't go to the $10 tasting - something both of us didn't need!!

We're enjoying the cooler weather

It's so nice and much cooler here in Michigan.

This is a picture of Baron curling up in the 'coveted corner' at the foot of the bed to stay warm. There is always a contest to see whether Marquis or Baron gets to sleep in the corner at night.

It was a great rally!

Well, "Circle the Wagons Again" is over and it was a great rally. We had 53 motorhomes parked in a huge circle in the desert and enjoyed great breakfasts each morning, a super salad bar in the afternoon before dinner and a great time around the campfire each night.
