With a little bit of patience and a lot of frustration, I’m posting yesterday’s blog, but without all the images. I wanted to show you how beautiful this campground in Quakertown, PA is. However, lack of phone coverage and camp internet, means that I cannot post my blog easily–at least with photos. We had a great afternoon and evening with Karen and Alan yesterday. We will see them Friday before we leave on Saturday, and I will post from their home.

We also don’t have TV. Good thing we have lots of pictures to watch! This place is truly out in the country. Sometimes you pay for beauty.

When I’m able to, I will show you the other campground pictures and some of Philadelphia. We are going there tomorrow.

We made it! We are north of the Mason Dixon line and closer to family. In fact, today we are going to visit cousins Karen and Alan in Dresher, PA.

Looking back at our tour of the South, both Richard and I found Tennessee the best place to visit. I’m not saying that Texas, Arkansas, Virginia and all the other states we stayed at one night weren’t beautiful. We just had our best fun in Tennessee and its varied topographical beauty. Memphis is now one of my favorite places.

So here we are in Quakertown, PA at a beautiful campground. I’m posting some photos of the grounds. We arrived about 3:30 p.m. and immediately got stuck in the mud. With the help of a park guest who had a 4×4 truck, we got out of the muck. I’m just hoping the campground will let us stay in the site we ended up in rather than our assigned space.

It is overrun with geese and their droppings! I’ve never seen so many geese in one place in my life. I think they are called a gaggle of geese when they travel together, and they do!

We will be here four or five nights and then move on to the New York/New Jersey area where there are more relatives to visit and sights to see.

But right now, I’m anxious to see my cousins this afternoon, so I’ll cut this short. I doubt I’ll be in a blogging mood when we return tonight. That’s why I’m excited to be north of the Mason Dixon line—family!
