Couldn’t Stay Away from the ADK

Today was the loveliest weather day we’ve experienced in over a week. Although a good portion of it was spent driving, we made the most of the sunshine and pleasant temperatures.
After a quick pump out, we reluctantly left Letchworth SP around 11:30 heading in the direction of home. We had no definite destination in mind, planning instead to see where we were when we got tired of driving. We drove through more rolling farm land before stopping for lunch at “Sweet Sue’s.” We had barely entered the New York Thruway (boring) when Al began researching campgrounds on our new “Camp & RV” iPad app. Apparently, he couldn’t stand the thought of driving right past the Adirondacks (one of our most favorite destinations) without stopping, so he found a nice little private campground just at the southern park boundary.
We got settled in about 5 o’clock and took a walk around the shady grounds. There is also mining for “Herkimer Diamonds” here, which is mildly amusing. Why anyone would want to spend time picking and chipping at rocks in search of nearly worthless quartz crystals is beyond me, but several folks seemed to be enjoying the activity in the late afternoon sun. The warm weather held so we were finally able to fire up the outdoor grill on which I cooked marinated chicken, green beans, and corn. Al is doing the dishes as I write this entry.
Throughout the day we discussed the possibility of driving straight home, but we are glad to have another night aboard haRVy before returning to the reality of work and household chores. This has been a great week for camping with all three campgrounds practically empty.
We should be back home late tomorrow afternoon after a very satisfying vacation that felt like much more than the 12 days it entailed.
Stay tuned for our next adventure!
