Home for 1 nite

We were kinda sad to leave the Amish Country this morning. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Our short 3-hour drive took us thru Reading & Allentown/Bethlehem, then Stroudsburg. Beautiful green hills & countryside led us to the Poconos. Then we drove along the Delaware River, thru the Delaware Water Gap Nat'l Recreation Area. We crossed the Delaware River into New Jersey & drove just 5 or 6 miles before arriving at our campground - Rockview Valley Campground outside Montague, NJ. We just have water & electric but it's just a 1 nite stay so no problem. We're parked in the "rally parking" - lots of space & nice shade trees.

Tomorrow we cross into New York & then into Connecticut. We're planning to spend a week in Old Mystic, CT. More later...
