Family Memories

IMG_2035One of the reasons that we came to this campground is that Harry has some family roots in the area. We took a ride around this morning, and Harry showed me some of the areas he visited as a young child.  His grandmother lived on this dairy farm back in the 1950’s, and also operated a restaurant across the road.

This used to be “The County Kitchen”.  I even saw the sign for the restaurant leaning against a small shed in the back, but it was too far away to get a clear picture.

 

 

IMG_2029While we were there, we visited the cemetery where Harry’s parents were laid to rest.

Some of the gravestones in this cemetery go back to the early 1800’s and late 1700’s.

The countryside here is beautiful, and we are enjoying scenic views wherever we go.

…where we met two of Harry’s brothers for dinner.

After a nice dinner of bbq chicken and spareribs, we headed back home, making one more stop…

  2. It's so neat to be able to visit those days of our youth with all the family memories. And finishing it up with ice cream makes it even more perfect.
