Narrows Too RV Resort
We have made it to our park for the month of July so I need to fill in the past couple of weeks of June. Gin, Pam and I enjoyed a couple of easy bike rides along Lake Erie before heading to a state park in New York.

Darien Lakes State Park (NY) is located about an hour from Niagara Falls and an hour from Letchworth State Park. Since Gin and I enjoyed Niagara last summer, we wanted to share the experience with Pam this year (June 17). We were met by a very friendly black squirrel who held my hand with his soft fingers while I fed him a seed. We all did the Cave of the Winds and the Maid of the Mist tours. There was a lot more water this time of year than late July of last year so we got quite wet but loved it.

We saw a couple of interesting signs near Buffalo that I want to share. The first is a great monument type billboard for local iron workers I guess. The other is for a funeral home that makes you ask if it’s really a family name or a joke.
Iron workers Amigone…?!?
Letchworth State Park was another very good day trip. They have a campground there but I’m not sure if Tawanda would fit. The Genesee River has cut a gorge in many layers of rock and some cliffs are about 600 feet high. It made for more beautiful waterfalls.

We enjoyed our stay but it was time to move across NY to Cooperstown for a few nights. Taking Hwy 20 was great because we could see the countryside and go through the small town villages. You know we had to go to the Baseball Hall of Fame there. All the shops in Cooperstown are baseball oriented.

Our next stop was near Concord NH in a family run campground. We met up with our travelling buds, Tricia and Dan and relaxed a bit and enjoyed a day trip to the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Merrimack NH. Our next stop was near Freeport ME. Tricia rode in the MH with Pam and me while Gin rode with Dan in their truck. We all shopped and people watched in Freeport and tried our first lobstah roll.
Red squirrels aren’t much bigger than a chipmunk
It was a busy couple of weeks of travel, but we have landed in Narrows Too for the month of July. It’s near Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. I’ll try do a post on some of our activities here soon.
Thanks for dropping by and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
