Greetings from Port Republic
Port Republic New Jersey is just a few miles south on the Garden State Parkway from Long Beach Island. We needed to dump our holding tanks after a week in Jimmy's driveway and we figured we could check out the Thousand Trails park that is here. It's called Chestnut Lake and its not as nice as the other TT parks we've visited. An old park. It needs some work. Everything worked fine tho for our 2-night stay. We also took this opportunity to visit some more of Jim's relatives. Jim's Dad grew up in Port Republic and a few aunts, uncles and cousins still live in the area. Yesterday he called Aunt Kay and was happy to find her home - so we went for a visit. Here's Jim, Uncle Joe, Aunt Kay and Cousin Ray. I'm going to post two photos here because Uncle Joe looks better in the first one, but Jim and Ray look better in the second. (Aunt Kay just looks good period!) Jim says he's found a program that makes it easy to take one person from a group shot and put him/her in a different group shot. So, here's his challenge - if it works I'll post his fixed picture here.
