From the Mountains...

Back to our vacation, we spent three days in the Pocono Mountains with my son and his fiance'. Of course it rained for the first day and night but that doesn't stop us.

I wanted to make a stew with biscuits in the fire but had to cook it on our little camp stove since it was too wet to get a fire going. It still was very good.

We also did stuffed tomatoes topped with cheese. I didn't have bread crumbs so I crushed up corn flakes and added to the top. I thought it was actually better than bread crumbs.

When the weather finally cleared, we headed to Bushkill Falls for some hiking. We've done the longest trail to all of the falls several times so me and dad just took our time wandering around the main falls.

My favorite camping shirt is made from men's handkerchief material and trimmed in silver rickrack. I had to get off this walkway quickly. It was only supposed to hold six people and there were definitely some people on it that counted as two people.

Dad taking a rest.
and of course the obligatory tourist shot...

My first attempt at a video.

This was our waitress, Ruth. She works at a diner we like to go to in the Poconos. I admired her angel pin and we started talking. Ruth is a double cancer survivor. Go Ruth!

And here is my hubby, son and his fiance' rescuing a tiny frog that got trapped in our kitchen tarp when we were packing up.

I don't know how he even saw it. It was so tiny. He was always dragging things like this home when he was little. He's now an Earth & Space Science Teacher.

Heading off to the Beach now!
