July 14, Here we come Pettecote Junction campground in Cedar Run,Pa. This time we are traveling with our son, Duane and his family and also 2 more grand kids...4 total.. Riley, Kaylee, Mason & Addy. It took about 4 hours on the highway and thru some narrow roads thru the mountains. Some were just one lane and narrow bridges, but we made it. We are here from Sunday till Friday, Duane got site #17 and we had #18. There is small creek (PineCreek) passing thru ..many inner tube floaters and kayaks are using the creek.
All week we enjoyed the water swimming , floating and also we found a water hole with rocks for the kids to cannonball off of. Some went up to higher rock (10-15 feet high) landings and tried it too. Way to go Mason, Riley & Addy too. Kaylee did jump from the lower rock only 6-8 feet high.
One day we floated down the creek for about 2 miles(?)we met some fellow campers who took our trucks down to a parking lot and drove a car back to camp to begin our adventure tubing. 7 of us.. 6 of them began the float.. 2 kayaks, tubes, and even a air filled boat for me to ride in. I was so slow that Riley bailed out on me to a tube and a 10 year old girl” Faith” navigated my boat over the rocks..Hilarious!! She was a a great Captain of my boat. We all arrived down stream to our trucks and loaded up for the return trip too the camp. After changing we went to the Cedar Run Store for “Perry” ice cream..14 different flavors to choose.
Next day we went for a trail ride on the trail next to the camp .. 3 kids and Duane and I got the bikes out and rode for about 2 hours on the trail and returned to the Cedar Run store..for what?? Ice Cream Again!! Time to go swimming again in the creek.. just a note.. we had to wear aqua shoes as the bottom was very rocky and slippery too. The Kids had the best time in the water floating and swimming ...no time for splashing when they had fun walking up stream on the bank and entering again and again to float back to the beach(Rocks) area.
The week was so hot the knats and flies were terrible. Sometimes we escaped to the trailers to get away from them. The air conditioners were on all week. Duane cooked bacon on the campfire each morning and at night we had Hamburgers..Hot Dogs.. Grilled chicken..even smore’s . Smore's were the best. Then the kids got out the neon sticks and made many designs with them. They even put on a dance for us around the campfire ...they looked cool in the dark !!
This week was a big swim party every day for all. We even saw a Bald Eagle resting in a tree with her 2 eaglets close by. The eagle was undisturbed by all the spectators on the bank. I tried to get a few shots. Time for ice cream again....
Thursday we decided it was a time for a get away to Wellsboro for pizza..We found a Pizza Hut in town and ordered 2 large pizzas to share. The kids had a great time this week so did the adults. Now is time..Friday am to pack up and leave for home... see you down the road.. Here are some pictures from the week... https://picasaweb.google.com/AirstreamHobo/PetticoteJunction2013
