Glimmerglass State Park
Curt and Glenda this past month and our time together will be ending in Cooperstown, NY. But first a visit to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Since we lived several years in Upstate New York, we've been here before but it's been a long time.
Double Day Field
Steve & Curt
National Baseball Hall of Fame
It's a very large and takes up a few buildings.
Curt's favorite part.
Cooperstown has a very cute Main Street. Glenda and I had no interest in the Hall of Fame, so we walked and window shopped through town.
We walked up and down the town and picked out some cookies at the bakery,
and had some great ice cream.
Saw this guy in one of the shops. I later found out it was Cal Ripkin.
The process of bat making from a log (at the bottom) up to the finished bat (at the top).
The oldest covered bridge in New York happens to be the oldest in the US as well.
We grabbed a couple geocaches in the park and walked around the beach and let Hurley swim in the water. It was pretty humid out and he just can't handle that very well.
There was a beautiful marina on the lake and Glenda and I walked along the path with gardens between the water and the flower gardens in the park.
We visited a couple of breweries nearby. Ommegang Brewery is a large Belgian Ale producing brewery.
They have beautiful grounds and a nice café.
After a snack and a flight of beer, we headed out for a drive and ended up at Council Rock Brew Pub.
Our last dinner together before we part ways tomorrow.
Back at the trailer Curt had a surprise for Steve. He had been traveling around with a special bottle of 2017 Dark Lord Imperial Stout beer that he was saving for our last night. It is a Russian-Style Imperial Stout brewed with coffee, Mexican vanilla, and Indian sugar. They really enjoyed it. Glenda and I took a pass.
One last campfire.The next day Curt and Glenda headed out towards their hometown of Illinois to visit family. Then we will head to Arizona where they winter for a few months. We will see them again in November before we head back home and then see them again in Feb/March before we both leave for our summer destinations. So it's more of a See Ya than a Goodbye.
$26, W/E - site #1.
The campground is small but the park itself is very large with several pavilions to rent, walking trails, swimming beaches and huge grass areas.
--A little scary story--
We were in line to use the dump station and there was an older, larger gentleman ahead of us dumping his tanks. As time went by I noticed that he seemed almost "frozen". Just standing there, looking my direction but not moving. I realized something might be wrong and told Steve to go see if everything was ok or if he needed anything. At that moment he fell right over backwards in an odd spot, stuck between the garbage can and some pipes. Steve ran over and after having some difficulty trying to get him up I ran over. I got behind him and put my arms around him and pulled up while Steve pulled him up from the front. It was very difficult awkward and we were barely able to lift him up. Poor guy. His glasses, medications, wallet, etc went flying everywhere. After talking to him, we noticed he was on oxygen and several medications and must've had an "episode". We gathered his belongings together and helped him get things put away so he could go back to the campground where his wife was waiting. He didn't want us to call any one. He thanked us and drove away. I'm not so sure he should really be driving an RV alone but we we're glad he was ok. Kind of scary.
We lifted the jacks the next morning and headed to our next stop in Brockport, NY, where we used to live to visit friends.
Along the way we stopped and found a cache at a 9/11 Memorial in a nearby small town.
Next Up, a couple of weeks moochdocking at our friends in Brockport, NY.
