Sorry – I know my email subscribers got an email that I had actually published this a few days ago. Sorry about that, I hit publish instead of save – OOPS!
Our time at the Jersey Shore is over for now. Not sure when we will be back, and while that makes me a bit sad, it is also exciting to move on to other people, places and things.
I decided to drive the day we pulled out of Lake & Shore Campground in Ocean View, NJ. We had a short travel day (yes, again – we are getting a bit spoiled!) and arrived at our destination, our first moochdocking spot about 2:30pm. By 3:00pm we were all set up for spending the long Labor Day weekend with our very good friends, the Infosino’s! Let me tell you – their driveway was built for moochdocking!
Bill and I have been friends with Tony since 10th grade. He and Bill had a class together and next thing you know we found ourselves hanging out on weekends. He met his bride, Ulrica, during their first semester at Rutgers and they’ve been stuck like glue to one another ever since. They have 5 children, Ben (who’s 20), Rebecca (who is 17) and the 14 year old triplets, Christoper, Matthew and Geoffrey. It is always busy at the Infosino’s! They handle it with (what appears to be) relative ease and a lot of humor, there is always lots of laughter when we are with them!
We spent most of our time just visiting, we had lots of catching up to do! They hosted a Labor Day picnic on Sunday, and a lot of family came. We hadn’t seen any of them since before the triplets were born, as we had moved to KY by then. Everyone wanted to take a tour of the rig and we were happy to show off our home!
Saturday afternoon, Bill, Tony and I headed over to one of their fav afternoon spots, the Seward Johnson (yes of Johnson & Johnson) Grounds for Sculpture. I had never heard of it, but it was a very cool place. I have to admit that sometimes sculptures confuse me, the abstract ones anyway. Some I really like a lot, but either way, I do appreciate the work that goes into them. Which are your fav’s?
Monday, after a yummy breakfast of bagels, pork roll and eggs, we made our way to my sisters in Lewes, DE. Another reasonably short day. It wouldn’t have been, had been been heading the other way on RT 1.
I had been a bit apprehensive as to whether or not we would actually fit into my sisters driveway. Her BF, Rodney, who drives 18 wheelers, said no problem, just might have to trim a tree limb or two, but I was still skeptical. Well, after a very small amount of “jockeying”, Bill got us all snug as a bug in a rug right next to the house. I have to say it is a cozy fit, but he got it in a slides out, all is good!
While at Shannon’s, we have been doing a fair amount of not much of anything. We have gone to the movies, out to lunch, Bill went to a tour of DogFish Head Brewery, and kayaking. I have also helped Shannon to go through some stuff. I happen to have a good amount of experience in sorting stuff, having just done it myself last spring/summer. She currently has her house for sale and hopes to be in FL before the cold of – what’s that season called? – oh yea – WINTER! sets in!
That wraps up our moochdocking time for now – it’s been great! Just want to give a special shout-out to the Infosino Family
and also Shannon for letting us fill your driveways, mooch off your electric, use your washer/dryers, cook and share food with you! Bill and I both appreciate your generosity! Thanks!
Next stop Millersville PA then Pittsburgh PA for quick last minute visits with the kids before heading to KY and Amazon for the fall!
