Where I stayed
Strawberry Park Resort
. It was still only early afternoon so it wasn't bad at all. We checked in and parked our RV. This place is huge. 160 acres- lots of sights that have the Park Model homes on them. They have 3 pools a kiddie pool and a hot tub. Bingo nights and ampitheater baseball field planned activities, large rec room. So we plugged in, Anthony went to the rec room to hang out, and Mark and I puttered around. Andrew said he wanted to go out too, so I went to the back to get his bike off the rack. Well he decided to go off by himself. I poked my head inside the rv to tell him I had his bike and Mark said " he's not here" !! Instant panic. he was nowhere to be seen. I hooped on a bike and went to find him- Mark went the other way. I found Anthony in the rec room and told him Andrew was missing and he needed to help find him. Anthony looked one way I went the other. I stopped at the front entrance and asked if they had seen him- no, but they would call there security, and if I wanted to they would take me around on the golf cart to help find him. About 2 minutes later Mark called my cel phone- they had brought him back. Anthony had also called security at the same time so they quickly found him and brought him back to Mark. Of course this was the one time he didn't have his Id wristband on. Needless to say we keep a tighter eye on him. Seems one of the people that has a park model home here has a garden train in his front yard and he went to see that. After we ate dinner I took Andrew back to see the train. Later we went swimming and Andrew even dunked underwater a few times. After that we just relaxed and watched a little t.v then went to bed.
Day 17 an early start to our day today. From Jersey City we head to Preston Connecticut. Nice ride- kind of long but really not too bad. Had to go around the Holland Tunnel so went over the George Washington bridge. The boys were asleep when we left- still tired from the walking in New York and late night. About 930 a.m. we stopped at Mcdonalds for coffee and breakfast. Off we went through Conecticut, Rhode Island and into Massachusetts. When we got to Massachusetts- we looked for our next camp spot. We stopped at the Rhode Island welcome center thinking they might have a brochure. No. Then stopped in the Massachusetts welcome center- they didn't have it any either, and they had never heard of the place we were going. So what to do. We went to Mcdonalds down the road and I found a internet connection so I could look it up. Well I found it and it wasn't in Mass. it was in Connecticut! OOps we passed it 40 miles ago. Can't cancel because we would lose our money, so we turned around and went back. Found the park- Strawberry Park
