Where I stayed
Whispering Winds campground
It was pouring with rain when we arrived just on six, so the kids couldn't go out and play. The guy running the camp was a ex-Londoner, a really nice guy and very helpful to us - and happy to talk to some other Commonwealth folk. I had a nice chat with him, and he was telling me about all the animals that visit the campground - black bear, deer, racoons, chipmunks & even porcupines (however, we didn't see any, though not for lack of trying on Josh's part). We had a really peaceful night's sleep here, just the sound of crickets - the quietest night we've had in the U.S.A.
Went to Bob Evans Restaurant (by our hotel in Niagara) for breakfast - very nice food, reasonably priced & good service. Then off into Buffalo itself to pick our 5th wheel up - at last! We managed to get away from Buffalo on schedule, and drove to Fredonia, Pennsylvania (gee, wonder who wanted to go there...!) where we had lunch in the Walmart parking lot (inside the 5th Wheel of course) and then had a major shop in Walmart for everything we needed to kit the 5th wheel out - plus another shop of groceries. We only got lost once today - but it could have been a major disaster, as we nearly turned down a one way street that sloped downhill - we would never have been able to back up! Then being lost, we kept going down roads that had low railway bridges at the end of them that we couldn't fit under! But eventually we got back on track and arrived at our intended campground 'Whispering Winds' in Sheffield, Pennsylvania www.whisperingwindspa.com
