Catch-up: The First Day
We are comfortably at Catie Hennessy's house in Oklahoma and here we have internet and time to catch up on our trip so far! We have had a really good time. On Monday morning we got up promptly and set out on our 9 hour drive from Alder Creek, NY to Ohio. We drove through a lot of vineyard in the finger lakes region of NY and Pennsylvania. A lot of grapes... It was so pretty!
Ohio was fun, and our campsite was very pretty and overlooked Grand Lake. It was really hot... like Mid-90s, which was perfectly fine while we were in the AC filled car. When we got to Grand Lake we were excited about a swim!! Unfortunately there was a Blue-Green Algae bloom at the lake and NO SWIMMING ALLOWED! The water at our beach was the color of MiracleGro... gross. Needless to say we opted for a cold shower. We did take a drive around the lake and a walk up a fun little canal. Over all a good time. :o)
