After breakfast we all decided to take the long walk down to the Hopewell Lake. Quite a hike from the CG with numerous hills. But, part way to the Lake we discovered a trail through the woods that would take us to the dam breast at the lake and be very close to Hopewell Furnace Historic Site. It was a great trail and the steepness was less severe than walking on the road. We did end up at Hopewell Furnace and then took a different trail back to the CG. It was about a 4 mile hike and was enjoyed by all.
|Nice walk through the woods!|
|The trail was alittle wet from all the heavy rain on |
|The old dam breast!|
We decided to build a campfire and enjoy some hot dogs for lunch. A fire was a good idea, since it still was rather chilly and what is better than roasting hot dogs over a fire!!!!!
The group spent the afternoon playing 3 games of Kubb, but Ken and I left to attend the Birthday Party of our 2 year old granddaughter, Katelyn. Fortunately, it was only a 20 minute drive to their house. So good to spend time with all of our children, son-in-laws, and granddaughters!

We were back to the CG by 7:45. The group had just finished eating so it was time for "snakes". We had a wonderful campfire and enjoyed just chatting and sharing. It was cold, but the wind had stopped and the fire kept us warm. Called it a day around 11:00.
|Snake making time! Snakes seem to be a hit over|
the famous s'mores!
|It was a cold night so occasionally we had to warm|
|We needed lots of layers and our hoods to be warm while|
