Erie, Pennsylvania was our next stop and we found another Elks club that offered a real good place to park with 30amp power for us. With the weather staying hot (mid 80’s) and humid we could still stay comfortable with our air-conditioning. We also had a contact person here in Erie that we wanted to see. Bill is the brother of Bonnie and brother-n-law of Doug and the last time we saw Bill was over 20 years ago. There is a “Camp” that we’ve been hearing about for years that Bill has here and we wanted to take a day trip out to see it. Not only did see the camp we also had lunch at the local golf club where Tim and Emily were married. I must say, they do make a great hamburger and I’m sure the rest of the food is just as good.
Back at Erie, we found that we were just in time for one of the festivals (Discover Presque Isle Weekend) that was being held at the Presque Isle State Park. The Presque Isle is a 23 mile long peninsula that juts out into Lake Erie forming a long arc looking back to Erie
and is a favorite spot for the tourists that make their way to Erie summer and winter. I’m not much for wintering in an area that is this cold but it would be great to experience it at least once There were winter pictures that we saw were the wave action coming into the peninsula would freeze and make some amazing and interesting pieces of ice art. During the summer the beaches are a welcome place to go and do…
doing anything from swimming, sunbathing, kayaking either Lake Erie or one of the canals or smaller lakes on the peninsula, and then another option of bike riding along one of the many biking trails covering the 23 miles.
