While making rounds at the campground, we continued to meet interesting people and make new connections. One of the more unusual was a crew assembled to film commercials for Devil’s Backbone beer. We were invited to share some of their dinner and afterward watch as they shot a 10 second scene over and over and over . . .
We took advantage of our proximity to NC to share in our great niece’s first birthday celebration. The chemistry themed birthday celebration was complete with periodic table, science experiments and petri dish and test tube treats. But the biggest treat was time together with family and the surprise visit of Cathy’s mom to the party.
After completing another of Cathy’s treatments in Frederick, we headed a little further north and east to meet up with Dave’s mom and sister Diane at the “world’s largest buffet” in East Earl, PA. After a satisfying meal, we dodged dozens of well-lit Amish buggies along the road en route to our hotel in Strasbourg. We enjoyed a leisurely morning together the next day before saying our goodbyes and heading back to the park.
It was great time together.
