Warren and I began our first RV excursion in March of 2007. Some of the places we have gone thus far: Tallahassee, Sarasota, Unadilla, Ga; Mountain Lake Resort, Helen, Ga; Pride RV Park, Maggie Valley; Pigeon Forge, Tn; Forest Lake RV Park, near Winston Salem, NC; Chesapeake RV Park, Glouster, Va.; Gettysburg, Pa; Hersey, Pa; and at present, Lancaster, Pa; All along the way, many photos have been captured --some for sale purposes, some personal. Our trip continues....
After leaving Lancaster, PA, we continue our journey to the beautiful home of Warren's cousin and wife, David and Chris Bennett in Southington, Connecticutt, arriving on July 21, 2007. Friday night, July 20 was spent in a Walmart Super Center parking lot in Stratford, CN.
After leaving Southington, CN, we stayed several nights at Sturbridge RV Park in MA. On July 26th, we left Sturbridge and arrived at Lake Winnepasaukee in New Hampshire, parking the motor home by the home of Neil and Addie Bennett, Warren's brother and wife. We enjoyed a twelve day stay there with some time spent at their home in Methuen, Ma (sans Gracie) visiting Warren's daughter, Paula and family and Russell, his son and family.
August 6 we left Winnepasaukee (in the rain) and stayed for one night in Breezy Meadows RV park in Concord, Vt.
We crossed the Canadian border on August 7th, arriving at Camping De Compton in Compton, Quebec, Canada and were there for two weeks. We met some people and toured Montreal with them while there. One major event was touring Notre Dame in Montreal. August 21 we left Compton and arrived at Ottawa Municipal Campground for three nights. Big event there was the Changing of the Guards at Parliament in Ottawa...and the home for stray cats on the Parliament grounds.
August 24th we crossed back into the good old USA and stayed 7 nights at Seaway Island Resort on Wellesly Island. I could easily live at Wellesly. It was one island in the St. Lawrence Seaway chain of 1,000 islands. The up state New York country side is beautiful. From there we stayed four nights at J and J campground in Mexico Town, NY, a small mom and pop run RV park. Do not recommend!
September 3rd, we arrived at Bass Lake Resort in Parish, NY for five nights. Finally, we arrived Niagara's Lazy Lakes in Lockport, NY, where we loved everything. We "did" the Niagara tour, the Butterfly Conservatory, and the Bird Aviary (both in Canada). We were so shocked at the American side of Niagara...buildings run down and boarded up, roads in horrible state and in general, not what you would expect at the famous Niagara Falls. On 9/19, Warren and I went through the locks on the Erie Canal. They took us through three locks and then back down. It was very educational We were at Lazy Lakes for two weeks. This park, thus far, is one of the nicest ones in which we have stayed. It was a Resort of Distinction park, so no charge for us.
September 21,and 22, were spent with a lovely couple from the Plantation, Anne and George Gennings, who had invited us to "stop by" since they were only three miles off our route to NH. These two gracious hosts took us to their private Country Club, The Skenandoa Club, for a round of golf, then out for a boat ride on their beautiful lake where they live near Hamilton, in up state New York. Wonderful time! We left the 22nd of September and only came as far as Scentectedy, NY, to Frosty Acres Campground...UGH...horrible. We only stayed two nights, forfeiting refund for one night because we wanted to "get outta there." We left Wednesday for Concord, NH.
We arrived back in NH at Lake Winnepausakee to stay with Warren's brother in order to be in Wolfboro, NH for the wedding of his granddaughter, Krista Bennett to Joshua Rogers on the 29th of September. We left NH on the October 1st heading back to our home in Florida.
The remainder of our trip and all other writings done on this website will be under the heading of "Thoughts" on my home page. Thank you for being on our journey with us. Please come back and visit often as quite frequently I update the photos and writings. Love to all, Shirley
