…..two more to go. It went as expected. Hopefully by tomorrow Peter will be feeling better again. When we got back to the camper, I played a little with my camera. It was getting darker already, but I think the picture came out pretty good. I love this little creek right by our campsite.

We went shopping today and to the mall. While in the mall we got our hair cut. We were supposed to get it cut last Saturday, but Irene came and that messed up everything.
When we got back to the campground we just relaxed and enjoyed the gorgeous weather and pretty view of the creek. I took a few pictures of some strange looking ducks. They were far away across the creek. I took them with my 300mm lens and no tripod, so they are not as clear as I wished they would be.
New date is September 4, 2011. Same time.
Thank you! :-)

I do love this little quiet campground and I know we will enjoy our time here. I guess everything in Life has a reason. If most of our friends wouldn’t have left Fantasy Island, I think that we’d be still there. Unfortunately most friends left Fantasy Island for more or less personal reasons and it was time for us to move on. I miss our good times there. On our way here today, we drove over the bridge to reminisce a little….I guess Irene even left her mark there.

Everything is tied down and put away. We got water and food. Yeah, alcohol too! Am I ready? No….I hate the thought that we just have to sit here and wait it out….scared like anything.
Anna’s fundraiser breakfast was canceled and I have no idea when if there is a make-up date. We still plan on leaving Monday, providing that the house in one piece.

Some men get a Corvette, some a Porsche….what does my husband get? He gets a Typhoon. That is what his new trike is called. He is having a good time with it and sure gets people’s attention when he rides down the road.

Our camera club went for a photo-shoot to the Cape May County Zoo yesterday. The sun was out, the temperatures were perfect.
We had a great time and on the way home we stopped at the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, but not before we stopped at this total weird garage with all kinds of antique cars. I am sorry that I didn’t pay attention to what town we were in.
We took Route 9 to drive home and yes, the house with the chair on the roof is still there.

Well….I know what you think, but I had her when I was twelve years old. LOL. We had a wonderful time with family and good friends. Chrissy made Mojitos (YUMMY…thanks, Chrissy!) Hamburgers, hot dogs, salads galore, cake from LaScala….life it good!

Had a nice visit with the kids. We took Kia with us to get her more used to Pearl and it seemed0 to have worked. After about 10 minutes of excitement they calmed down and it worked fine. Pearl being a puppy, despite her large size, wanted to play with Kia and Kia just wanted to be left alone and actually growled at Pearl. Once they calmed down, they where fine.

At 4:30 am this morning Peter woke me up to tell me that there is a fire at one of the neighbor’s house. The street was filled with fire trucks and police cars. Mostly smoke. I don’t know when the fire started.

We got home earlier than planned and surprised the kids with our presence. They met for dinner at the Fortune buffet and we joined them. It was real nice, especially since my cousin's girls with family from Germany were there too. It was their last night here in the US after a 3 week vacation (2 weeks Florida and a week at Tammy’s) and it was nice seeing them.

OK – we went to see the Grand Canyon….the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania that is. I have to say that we should have went there before we went to see the REAL Grand Canyon! Don’t get me wrong…..it was beautiful and very impressive, but for haven’s sake…please Pennsylvanians….do not call it Grand Canyon!!!!
Below are some ‘morning pictures’ of the campground.

We had friends over from Fantasy Island Campground and enjoyed their company. Changed out plans for todays trip to the canyon. The weather looks better for tomorrow. I guess it’s a good day for shopping today.
