During our trip to New Jersey and our stay at Pine Cone RV Resort, we figured out the private parks use the word Resort loosely. Although this park had a pool, soccer field, tennis and basketball courts the campground still did not meet our qualifications for a resort. There are many permanent residents on one side of the campground and not as well-kept as we would prefer. All the sites and roads are sandy dirt. We were promised sewer but it was a honey truck that came once a week so we still had to monitor our usage. The price of $775 a month plus metered electric ($125) was overpriced. The campground served our purpose to be close to our sons for visiting.
While in New Jersey we visited Asbury Park numerous times and enjoyed the beach and good food. We enjoyed seeing the farms and buying fresh New Jersey grown produce. New Jersey is very green and we understand where it gets its name “The Garden State”.
We had loads of fun taking cooking classes at Heirloom Kitchen in Old Bridge, New Jersey. If ever visiting, these classes are wonderful and very hands on. Check out www.ourheirloomkitchen.com
Our daughter-in-laws parents live on Lake Lefferts and treated us to a dock float and dinner. This was a very special evening with such wonderful folks.
We also visited NYC and while there went out to a Bluegrass festival in Prospect Park, Brooklyn.
We left New Jersey July 17th and to avoid DC and Baltimore we decided to head west and check out the Amish Country in Pennsylvania. Our first stop was Ephrata, PA to eat at Shady Maple Smorgasbord. The food was delicious and the farm country was beautiful. We were anxious to get south so hurried through Virginia spending one night in Ashland, VA at Walmart and heading to Newport NC early the following morning to Goose Creek RV Resort.
We love to travel in our 2021 Coachmen Beyond van about half of the year. Join us, if you will, to see where our adventures take us.
