Pirate boat race

We went to the campground just for one night to participate in this weeks clambake.  It was a potluck dinner and we truly enjoyed it.  After the dinner we hung out with John Blair and his family.  Good times! BTW, little Johnny Blair came into second place at the race.

50th Wedding Anniversay

We celebrated our anniversary very quiet.  Just the family.  It was what we wanted.  The kids treated us for a yummy dinner at the Anchor Inn in Ocean Gate.  The food was good, we had a good time and got some gorgeous flowers too.

Today was a big day for the family.  Dennis got his prosthesis and we are thrilled!  So bitter-sweet still sad that it happened to my baby in the first place, yet so proud that he came this far. He is in good spirits and never gave up.

First trip in the canoe

We are here at the campground since Saturday now.  It's quiet, because all the weekenders are gone. We decide to blow up the canoe and take it to the lake.  I don't have an easy time to get in and out, but I managed.  Once we were on the lake I felt somewhat uncomfortable.  Not really scared, yet weird. The next time we go I will definitely have to take a Xanax or something.  I beliebe age is catching up with me. LOL
All in all though, it's pretty cool.

Monmouth Race Track

We were invited to celebrate my neighbor's 70th birthday at Monmouth Park. It was great.  Food was good, and we had fun putting in some bets.  I came with $15 and went home with $15.20.  Now to me, that is winning. LOL

Our new summer home

I just noticed that it has been a while since I wrote last. 
We arrived last Friday for the first overnight stay at our new campsite.  So far so good.  We are very comfortable because it reminds me of our old seasonal site at Fantasy Island in Sunbury PA.  People are friendly and make you feel welcome. 
The campground itself feels ‘rustic’. Lots of trees.  The drives are unpaved and it is a bit dusty when people drive faster than the speed limit of 5 mph.  The lake is great.  I already went tubing on it.  Not the fast kind of tubing, just a relaxing floating type of tubing.  One of my neighbors invited me to come and she lent me one of her tubes.  Needless to say that I went out the next day to purchase my own.
Saturday night was a party for everyone at the beach and from 5:30 – 7 pm they even had an Elvis impersonator and I was one of the few ‘lucky ones’ that got his sweaty scarf.  He was good too!  So all in all….we do like it so far.
