Weekend Wrap-Up #20
I am really tired from this past weekend. I probably could have spent all day sleeping if I didn’t have to work, but bills need paid and such is life. We spent the weekend at Ferryboat Campsites in Liverpool, PA. Which is runs right along side of the Susquehanna River. I took Friday off of work, so I had the car all loaded up and ready to go when Travis got home from work, we even took Coco along with this time. We didn’t get to do much on Friday since it started to pour, but on Saturday we were all ready to go.
Except my brother and Travis didn’t seem like they were up for much since their faces were in their phones the entire time. I hate being on my phone while camping, I usually leave it in the car or the camper, which is why you didn’t see any tweets or instagram’s from me, except for that 1AM fire picture. ;)
At this campground there is a Ferry that runs from the campground to across the river to Millersburg. The water was really low this year, so they didn’t run the ferry on Friday, but it rained enough Friday night for the ferry to run on Saturday and Sunday.
Okay, now I HATE spiders and snakes, they both creep me out and I can’t touch them. So, on Saturday when we went down to the rocks along side of the river, there was a water snake in the water, and I was freaking out, yelling, screaming, and threatening to smash his little head with a rock, but it was actually really cool when the snake caught a fish and I managed to get a picture of it. So, if you hate snakes and can’t look at a picture, just scroll down really fast and avoid the next picture!
Here is a view of the river from down at the rocks/rapids. We were waiting for some of my family to come floating down the river on their tubes, so I could get some pictures of them going thru the rapids, but after waiting a good half hour, we gave up. They came floating down the river about an hour later.
Here is some of the little rapids that the river has. This is looking towards the Millersburg side.
From this picture you can see how the campground runs along side of the river. And the extra ferry is docked on the side. I’m pretty sure that Travis was trying to catch a snake in this picture. Boys…
I didn’t go with on the float on Saturday because I went wine tasting at 2PM, and they all left for the float at 1:30, but I managed to get their picture from the side when they came floating by, even though I really wanted to get their pictures as they went down the rapids, but there was some fisherman in my spot. Everyone was in tubes except for my Grandpa, he was in a red kayak.
Steak, Corn on the Cob & Baked Potatoes = Delicious
On Saturday night there was quite a few drunks out and about, like these two goon heads. They kept riding down the hill in their golf karts and then getting stuck in the mud, over and over again.
How was your weekend? Do you need another day to recover from your weekend?
