Wednesday morning we left Plymouth although we could have stayed a week with all the great things to see and do. We went south to see Newport RI where Judie’s dad was stationed for awhile during WW II. Along the way we stopped at the Whaling Museum in New Bedford MA. This was a history of whaling dating back to the 1600’s. Apparently New Bedford was a whaling center with ships going around the world hunting whales. Parking our truck and trailer in New Bedford (parallel parking on the street, mind you) was quite a challenge. Judie took a photo of one of the streets we traveled.

From Newport we stayed along Long Island Sound and stopped at the Riverdale Farm Campsite in Clinton CT east of New Haven. We do enjoy the water and the Sound looked like a bay, since you can see land across the Sound.

The Jersey City RV Park we had planned to stay in order take a trip into NYC was full. So we decided to skip NYC and go to the Catskills and stayed in a Coast 2 Coast Park in Accord NY near Kingston. Of course we took the back roads and tried to miss the Interstates as we went northwest. Rondout Valley Resort was a nice mountain Park. This gave us 2 days to relax and get ready for the Lancaster PA area. We went to town once to get some fresh produce at a local stand. Also, visited with a very outgoing woman who was having a ‘girls night out’ next to our site. She gave us ideas for the Lancaster County, PA area. Now, we just have to remember the Shady Maple Smorgasbord.

Saturday we headed south along US 209 (missing the Interstate). At Port Jervis we took a detour to see the highest point in New Jersey. High Point State Park was a quick stop to walk around. We enjoyed the canoeing action as we traveled through the Northeast corner of NJ. We entered PA near Stroudsburg, back on to US 209, and southwest to Mill Bridge Village and Campresort in Paradise PA (east of Lancaster.) This park is in the middle of an Amish farm area with much horse and buggy travel around us.
