Presidents week end at the Beach

A great week end was had by all in Ocean City, Md. Frank, Debbie, Linda and Jim headed to the beach Friday Morning. Stopped in Elkton, Md for lunch and than we were beach bound. Oh, almost forgot we had to stop on the way for Frank to buy his breakfast SCRAPAL, it is to gross to worry how to spell it.

Firday night Lori and Mindy arrived, we went to Dumpsers for Dinner and Ice Cream. Sat was shopping day for the ladies. Frank and I went geocaching, (see other post). Saturday night was dinner time at Waterman's. Sunday the men and ladies were on our own again. Dinner was at J R's Ribs. Monday was a stop at Rehboth outlets and than returned home.

We had an outstanding dinner waiting for us at the Greenwood house prepared by the one and only Jose. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!!!!!!!!!

Cooperstown, NY Trip

On Thursday morning Aug 12 Dodge Caliber with Linda, my great nephew Hunter & I left Lancaster County behind for a trip to The National Baseball Hall of Fame.

We picked up Hunter at 7:00 am. The drive north to New York went great and we were in Cooperstown about 1:00 PM. After finding our motel, Lake n Pines, we returned to Cooperstown to check it out and plan our visit. First stop was lunch, then were entered the baseball hero's "Wax Museum". Hunter was impressed by the figures and there history. To name a few: Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig, Roberto Clemente, Joe DiMaggio, (I know I can't spell), Joe Torre, Pete Rose, and many more. we also watched an inning of a game at Double Day Field.

We checked out a few of the shops on Main St. Hunter was interested in getting baseball cards with the money he had along. he did wait til Friday to get some after we were in the hall itself. We returned to the motel for a swim in both the outside and inside swimming pools & hot tub. than dinner and bed time.

Friday was busy. We were in the hall of fame from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. Very cool place to see and read all the history (Thanks a million Dennis). Hunter was mostly interested in the Yankees & Phillies items. But all is to had to explain. The Hall of the plaques is just breath taking.

After our visit to the hall we needed lunch again. While eating lunch I asked Hunter if thought he would like a baseball bat with his name on it, His eyed got big and he shook his head "Yes". We went to the bat company and he picked a bat and we had "Hunter Reed #2 & Warwick Little League" put on it. Also, Mindy need one. Her Bat has "Mindy Reed, Sec & LBBBC" on it

Saturday Morning we headed to Marcy, NY to visit Linda's cousin and he family. Kay and Mike Sandbrook. Hunter had a swim in there pool to cool off. Than it was off to the local Zoo, That past about an hour and an half. We returned to Kay's house to pick up Mike. We were off to their Son's house for dinner. Doug, wife Deb, so David and daughter Danielle were waiting for us.

On the way to their house we did stop by Lock 20 on the Erie Canal, neat thing to see.

After dinner were went and played miniature golf. we saw about 15 deer in the fields while driving. then is was back to Kay and Mike's to rest for the drive home Sunday.

It took from 10:10 am til 5:30 pm to get to Lititz. 1 hour to go about 5 miles on rt 81 in north Pa. After retuning Hunter home Linda & I went to Millersville to the Greenwood home for Pizza and an evening of talk and socializing.

Great trip of about 750 miles.
Linda and I are now on the boat (Tues PM), we are going somewhere tomorrow on the boat but didn't decide where yet.

Will post some pictures when I get Home. Later Jim
