The chirping of the birds woke me before the sunshine. What a spectacular day! We started with bagels, cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers and chopped onion with our coffee. Then we wandered over to the house to start on our planned BBQ for our kids, Michelle, Brian (her betrothed) and Tristan. They were staying in NY for the weekend, but planned to rent a car and come out for lunch. The ribs, corn, potato salad, baked beans and Texas Toast were prepared and ready to cook, but they were still in NY, so Gary and I ran out to take some shots of the Last Covered Bridge in New Jersey. It was about 7 minutes down the road. Of course it was one lane, and of course, you know we won’t be going THAT way in the coach, so it was fun to take the jeep over it.
Two o’clock came and went, so we cooked and ate. They finally arrived at 3 pm famished, so they had a bite to eat, then we went outside to a perfect day to show Brian and Michelle the antique car collection and Tristan the coach. We spent a couple of hours talking and having a good time until it was time for them to head back to NY for a surprise birthday party. We weren’t very hungry so nibbled on M&Ms and Doritos while pouring over maps and tour books trying to decide where and when to go next. By the time we finished the Doritos, we had a plan! We will stay here until June 14 going on day trips to Pennsylvania, Atlantic City, and other fun places, and then head out to Acadia National Park in Maine, heading north over the border to Montreal, southwest to Toronto and then down to Raleigh by August first to meet our granddaughter, Lauren, who will travel with us down to her home in Tampa, Florida.
Gary and I will then be in a position to apply to Disney for jobs for the winter. That’s the big plan, of course, subject to change at any time. We are full-time vagabonds, after all!
