I'd Rather be at Camp

Directions:
Turn right at the deli.
Turn left at the one lane bridge after the old barn.
Stay left at the "Children Playing" sign.
Keep driving until you see this.
 

Those are the directions to camp.
 
My father is a member of the Delaware Hunting Club located in upstate New York. Each year they have a Clam Bake the Sunday after Labor Day. It also happens to be the first Sunday of Pro Football.  This is the one Sunday we are willing to give up sitting in front of the TV watching the games to....
 
 
go fishing

 
catch frogs
 
 
catch newts




meet a grouse 

 
name the grouse "Baby Chicken"
 

laugh really hard when Baby Chicken follows Uncle Nick around

 
hang out by the pond


take long hikes

 
look at the pretty flowers

 
take a picture of my current knitting project
 
 
go rock hopping
 
 

 
go rock hopping with some friends


 
 


"don't step on the wobbly ones"

 
think about why we don't come here more often

 
after a morning of fishing, hiking, rock hoping and exploring it is time to eat
 
 
I missed getting pictures of the clams, corn, shrimp and lots of other goodies. Above is the best chicken cooking over the charcoal.
 
no target practicing on Clam Bake day...too many people walking around
 
 
so after a long day it's time to find a comfy recliner


take a sip of your favorite drink


and claim your bunk



Thanks Dad for having us up to camp. We had a great time. Hopefully we can go up again soon and take some rides on the ATVs.
