It's so nice to read about all the adventures you three are having on your Jersey Staycation this summer! And yes, a lot of history in our little state.


You were practically in my back yard! The canal is a good place to bike although flooding is a constant problem.
My husband and our sons rode the "Quadzilla" in NY state's Finger Lakes region last weekend. Four hundred plus miles in two days! While we waited for them to finish daughter and I hung out around the lakes and checked out Cornell (on her short list of college possibilities).
Bicycling is a wonderful activity for young (and not-so-young) people. As I mentioned before, Charlie can enjoy it for the rest of his life and it's a good way to get around if driving isn't an option.


All that greenery and water makes such a rustic change from all that sand and water... it's so beautiful along the canal.

What a beautiful day for you!

When you hear "thump-thump-thump," do you always have to guess what's bothering Charlie? Can he ever tell you? It seems that you have both gotten to a point of just shrugging and saying, "As long as he doesn't hurt himself... he'll work it out." What a tough yet essential lesson for the parents of teens! Bravo!

I would say, Louise, that right now it's always a guess, although we do have some strong hunches.

We will have to return to the canal!

And maybe I'll have to start riding a bike. (But then who will drive the support vehicle?)

Eileen, who knows but we might show up in your environs! Have bike rack, will ride bikes all across the Garden State!


Have you tried the Henry Hudson yet?


Might be better in the Fall though when the area is less crowded.

that one is on our list! Thanks for mentioning that it might be crowded---good to know in advance.
