Yesterday, the 26th, we left Timberland Lake campground, just outside of Trenton, NJ and drove north about 100 miles to Tri-State Campground in Matamoros, PA.  It is the closest campground to Westtown, NY which is where our friends Terry and Phil Tobin live when they are not in Florida or on the road.2013-06-26 Timberlake to Tri-State - Microsoft Streets & Trips 6272013 72631 PM.bmp


We drove the jeep over to their beautiful home in Westtown, NY in time for happy hour- water, wine and shrimp.  Then we had a delicious dinner of chicken parmesan with salad, bread, pasta and pastries for dessert.


Today, the 27th, started with a morning shopping trip to Wal-Mart.  Terri and Phil had a luncheon to go to, but they came by the campground a little after 2pm to pick us up.  We went to Grey Towers, the home built by James and Mary Pinchot in 1897 in Milford, PA.  Their son, Gifford Pinchot helped found and was the first chief of the National Forest Service.  He was also twice elected governor of Pennsylvania.  Here are some pictures of the castle.DSC02695DSC02700DSC02702DSC02708IMG_20130627_163029_337


One of the more interesting sites at the Pinchot Castle is their outdoor dining table.  Food was floated across the pool from one diner to another.DSC02698

After touring the Pinchot castle, Terri and Phil took us for delicious dinners at the Apple Valley Restaurant.

Hugs, and Type at You Later.
