Quiet, quiet, He speaks...

Alright, updates since last post.

After we were in Michigan we headed over to Niagara, New York. The falls were simply amazing, but visiting Canada for the first time is where most of my memories lie. We only actually visited the falls themselves for one of the days we were there, which honestly was enough. I would have enjoyed staying in the area longer, but either way I'm glad we had the opportunity to stay.

After spending ~4 days at Niagara, we headed over to Holley, New York. The area was very beautiful, and while we were they're the leaves were changing colors. The Red Rock campground we visited there was very nice, and is at the top of my list for non-Thousand Trails campgrounds. (The one in Niagara was nice too, but we didn't stay there long enough for me to get attached to it.) It was nice to walk along the Erie Canal in the brisk Autumn chill that you don't really get to experience in Florida until mid to late winter.

After spending 2 weeks in Holley, we headed down to the Thousand Trails park in Hershey, PA. I've heard a ton of hype about this park, so I was expecting a lot; and it has lived up to all of it. The park is big, clean, and just generally nice. The facilities have all you can ask for from a park. My only two gripes are:
  1. The showers don't stay on for longer then ~12 seconds. There is a button you have to keep pushing 1000 times to keep the water running.
  2. The tennis courts arn't lit. (A small qualm that is easily settled by playing during the day.)
All in all though, the pros out weight those two small cons. We're going to be here a week which just doesn't feel long enough. Rene and Mira are here, which makes leaving difficult. Afterwards we should be headed to Williamsburg, VA [again] which I am looking forward to because of the chance to visit Busch Gardens again. So until my next blog post, see you later. You may now resume what you were previously doing.
