Monday, July 26 – We had a little send off party at Rick & Chris’ house Sunday evening. Rick prepared an old family favorite….Fried Bologna Sandwiches.
Look at that bologna sizzle!
Too many cooks in the kitchen.
Craig, Keith and Rick
Rick, Laura and Chris
Dad, Marsha and Paul
No dodging the heat for us…..LOL Most of the nation is sweltering in heat anyway, so we might as well take it on in our nation’s capital…..WE’RE OFF TO WASHINGTON, DC
After enjoying family and friends in Canton, Ohio for four weeks, we pulled out of Rick’s driveway and headed down I-77. A HUGE thank you to Rick and Chris for allowing us to “camp” in their driveway…it was an AWESOME visit! There sons, Keith & Craig can have their parking spaces back now. Thanks also to Marsha’s daad for letting us sit in his air conditioning, and Marsha using the tub for her “wonderful” bath time. We really enjoyed our stay and our frequent talks with you and dad. See you all very soon!!!
Lots of corn growing on our ride.
Very scenic drive.
Crossing the Ohio River.
Very windy roads. We got into some pretty good mountains with some hefty grades.
Here’s are campsite for the first night…..
WALMART in Cumberland, MD
Tuesday, July 27 - We hit the road again. We were on the scenic highway.
Can you make out our motor home in the back of this truck?
Now for DC traffic…and we are at least an hour out side the city!
Our next morning heading to Pohick State Park in VA. We’re less than 30 miles from DC and will ride the train/subway in for sightseeing. This is a very nice park with paved roads and gravel sights. We are in site 99.
Tons of room.
Looking down our street.
Picnic table, fire ring and grill.
They have a HGUE pool and water park called Pirates Cove and Water Park. Yes, that is a pirate on the top.
There is a ton to do here. It is a great place to bring the family. They have miniature golf, Disc golf, a really big playground area, canoe & kayaks for rent and fishing.
Whoa….what’s that!! We just had a deer visit our site….lol Lucky for that deer, Bella, our cat wasn’t prowling around outside. She was napping in the motor home.
Squirrels are every where.
Heading to DC on Wednesday. Catch you up on what’s happening there in our next blog.
Thanks for stopping by. See y’all real soon.
