We are spending two nights with our friend, Bill G., recuperating from the past few weeks. I have listened to the advice of those who love me, to rest before making more forward progress to our first campground in Savannah, GA.
When we pulled out of Yorktown Heights, our truck groaned with the combined weight of cargo and passengers. Soon, though, the might of the V8 accepted its responsibility and settled in for the trip through New Jersey and into Pennsylvania.
Passing by the Villanova University campus, we arrived at 7pm and were treated to a home cooked meal and the as delicious presence of friends we’d only seen virtually for the past two years. Oh to be with real people in glorious 3D!
Inside the camper, a shelf had broken during the trip. RVs and boats have one thing in common – very light building materials that are not meant to hold books and other heavy items. So, today included a trip to the hardware store and an hour’s worth of being Bob the Builder.
Because it’s raining, Bill treated us to a brief tour of the Philadelphia Main Line including my mom’s former upperclass boarding school (Baldwin), Haverford College, the Shipley School and the Merion Cricket Club. Winding, thin roads, stone homes and candles in every window are just some of the features I noticed on the side streets.
We enjoyed a meal of sushi and now it’s time to get ready for Beth’s two yoga classes!
