8/31/14 Sunday in Dover,PA (Gettysburg Farms-TT/OW)
That break was welcome. We had the best of times visiting and playing cards with my sister Lynn and brother-in-law Gene. Such a great way to share and relax. Our trip over I-68 was so scenic. I guess it’s the National Road. Beautiful. We got back to the campground Friday and shared a potluck dinner with our friends as soon as we got in. Our night was around the campfire. Perfect ending to a lovely vacation. Saturday we enjoyed shopping at the Amish Farm mall. Texas was great for HEB grocery stores, the Midwest is great for it’s Amish farm stands, along with all sorts of farm land. Several of us took naps in the afternoon, then we shared at another potluck dinner. We taught Susan/Bill and Gail/Larry how to play “13” and were off and running until it got so dark we changed to sitting around the campfire.
Sunday morning was really hot and muggy, good day to get to church early, then hole up inside our air conditioned coach with TV. I was ready to play cards before lunch but Larry/Gail needed to get dog food so we held off on the card game until the afternoon. I spent that pre card game time researching RV info and getting my month’s photos saved and organized.
Unfortunately the air conditioned clubhouse was in use for bingo, so we toughed out playing our card game in the heat/humidity. John won handily and Trish was at the bottom. Everyone had a good time. We nixed any campfire plans because of the heat.
Around 9 pm campers set off their “Magic” lanterns into the night sky. They are like translucent hot air balloons without the basket part. Plus they’re about 3 feet high. It was beautiful and serene watching them floating up in that cloudy sky.
Gettysburg Farm flowers. Don’t get to see gladiolas very often any more.
