“Get back!” Part 2

Part two of our trip down memories’ lanes, found us in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey.  Stops along the way included Bethlehem and the Little Red Barn in Pennsylvania, Rye, Pelham and the Big Apple (including Brooklyn) in New York, and Princeton New Jersey.  Visits included Eric’s brothers Dave and Jeff and Jack and his family, our daughters Beth and Jean, and Eric’s high school friend Larry Wright and his wife Robin Kani.  Memories included magic in the woods, past sailing grounds, and a lakeside memory bench for Eric’s parents.

While visiting Larry and Robin, we  stopped by the old Bethlehem Steel mill, now repurposed as a public park.

30.PA1 camping

After visiting Larry and Robin in Bethlehem, we stayed several nights at this Pennsylvania campground.

Canoeing on Lake Nockamixon.

We enjoyed Jiffy Pop, the magic treat, for dinner one night.

8.3Rye American YC (2)

The Rye American Yacht Club, where Eulalie raced during her high school years.  Without a current membership, we were politely kept from entering the grounds, hence this more distant picture.  Coincidentally, Eric’s brother Jack and his family now live a short drive away.

8.2NewRochelle1 Huguenot YC

The Huguenot Yacht Club, another of Eulalie’s haunts, was a little more welcoming, nothwithstanding the sign’s message.

9.NY7 Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens provided a peaceful place to wander in the midst of the city’s hectic pace.

9.NY4 Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

The Garden’s rose collection is extensive.  This rose reminded us of Eulalie’s grandmother on her father’s side, one of seven Delaney sisters.

4.Princeton (2)

While in Princeton, we visited the battlefield where George Washington took on the British following Washington’s success in Trenton after crossing the Delaware.

This spy map helped George formulate his strategy.

5.Princeton bench (5)

Eric and his brother Dave attached this plaque to a bench installed in their parents’ memory looking out on Lake Carnegie where the lived for many years.

through Dorsett Ave 026

View from the Muz and Pog’s bench.  Muz, who took up sculling in her fifties, would have enjoyed watching this eight person shell power by.
