There is a hint of autumn in the air. Some of the trees in the mountains around us are just starting to turn. These leaves gave us a clue that fall is on its way.
We got an early start as we had a ways to go today, and wanted to get ahead of the rain. We took the “Avoid Highways” feature off our GPS so Gigi, our GPS, took us on Interstates most of the way. Some weren’t too bad, but going through cities and connecting to different Interstates was not fun.
We stopped in Albany, NY to talk with a Walgreens or CVS Pharmacy about getting our Covid 19 test for entry into Canada. What a hassle! The websites are not too friendly and the phone tree is impossible. We thought talking to an actual person would help, but it was an unsuccessful experience.
We were relieved to arrive at this campground….We actually do hear whipperwills calling all around us.
The host, a very friendly young man, greeted us by name, got us registered, and offered us free beer! Can’t beat that! (Although it is n/a)
George made a nice fire and did some grilling.
DINNER: Salmon pasta. I sauted cooked (grilled) salmon leftovers with onions and a lot of garlic. I added lemon juice, capers, and cream cheese to make a light cream sauce. I served over thin spaghetti. Sides were grilled tomatoes and corn-on-the-cob. All quite tasty!
