May 22-29, 2017 Pomona, New Jersey

It rained the entire 3 hours it took us to get here. The roads are getting tighter the further north we go... Old towns, roads, bridges, etc... We stayed at the Pomona RV Campground. It is a small park, clean with lots of seasonal campers and lots of trees. It is right next to the airport, so we get to see some commercial jets come it and out and get to hear the super loud military jets playing around the area...
  

New state!!!
  

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ
This is about 15 minutes from our campground. It has been a disappointment... The roads have more potholes than the ones in Houston and the boardwalk, while nice and wide, is just a bunch of store fronts with fancy hotels that could use a spruce up...
  

  

  


PHILADELPHIA, PA
About 45 minutes west of us was Philly... It is a large city with all the large city issues. However, the history here is amazing... It is the second Capital of the US after New York. We visited Independence Hall...

  

Congress Hall

House of Representatives
  

East and West Committee Rooms
  

Senate Chamber
  

Committee Rooms - Original Portraits of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette


This is the room where the constitution was drafted... Washington, Jefferson, John Hancock, etc... they all sat here.

May 15-22, 2017 Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

A short 26 mile drive to a location 1 mile east of our previous one... just to go around the bay... Staying at Delaware Seashore State Park, right next to the beach in Rehoboth Delaware. This is the first state park we have stayed in on this trip.  It's a basic park, but a great location...
  

After a couple of days of cold and windy weather, it got a little warm, so we took off to the beach!
  

Some of these fishermen are serious!


Indian River Inlet Bridge



  








The town of Rehoboth Beach has a wide, but not very long boardwalk. Despite it being a little cold, the beach was crowded!!!
  

  

Back at our beach for the afternoon...
As soon as it got warmer, biting black flies invaded the beach. And they LOVE Texans!! Some locals said they seemed to be pretty bad this year.
  

The warmer weather was nice while it lasted... cold temperatures, high wind, and rain came back for our last couple of days... This is a very nice area, we will definitely come back...

Now on to New Jersey!!!
