We had omelettes and fresh fruit for breakfast and after doing dishes, we finished our game of Hand and Foot. I was victorious again - YES!!! We played 3 more rounds and figured we would finish the game later today. Ken talked to both of our daughters while I finished 3 more sea glass pictures.
We packed lunches and snacks and left the CG around noon and headed to George Childs Park Trail within the Delaware Water Gap. It was about a 35 minutes drive from the CG but took a bit longer because of road construction. Of course we had to make a stop at the nearby Turkey Hill for coffee for Ken and Pumpkin Spice cappuccino me. I would say I am a bit "hooked" on that drink and it will only be available for a short time so every time we pass the Turkey Hill I think must have one. I don't even like coffee!!!
We had never been to this trail on our other trips to this area but were intrigued when it mentioned there were 3 waterfalls along the trail. After reading that we knew we had to take that hike! We were not disappointed! It was such a spectacular trail with lots of wooden stairways, bridges, and of course, the 3 falls.
|This was the surface on the 1st part of the trail.|
Fulmer Falls was the 1st one we came to -
The next one was Deer Leap Falls and it was beautiful too -
|Don't you just love the bridge in the background??|
As we got near the end of the trail we had a great view of Factory Falls -
|Time to relax and just enjoy!|
|Sometimes I just need to pass and admire|
.....and then the Woolen Mill Ruins -
When we returned to the CRV we got our lunch bag and went to a picnic area near the entrance to the Park and enjoyed our lunch. We had hiked a couple of miles and loved every "step".
We got back at 4:00, unloaded the car, went through the pictures Ken had taken today, and took a walk around the CG before sitting outside to finish our game of Hand and Foot. I could hardly believe I won again! By then it was starting to get dark so Ken grilled chicken and potatoes but we ate inside.
Ken did some reading and checked things on his I-Pad. I played some games. After showers we played 1 more round of Hand and Foot before heading to bed to do some reading.
It was another day to celebrate life!!!!
