So, the plan was, initially, that we were going to stay at the Little Buffalo State Park that lay nestled in a beautiful, wooded area on the east half of Pennsylvania about 20 miles west of the Susquehanna River. We had planned on staying there a few days and then rolling on towards toms River New Jersey, where we would visit our lovely cousin June, Mary and Steve.
It was three days earlier however when we were reminded that our daughter had written a play for the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra. It was to be an hour and a half long children’s program that she was hired to write describing classical music sound waves in the history of Mozart and Beethoven.
We, being horrible and uncaring parents, forgot about the whole thing. Luckily, she reminded us, and how important was for her that we attend. Unbeknownst to her we were supposed to be in Little Buffalo State Park on the east half of Pennsylvania.
I’ve heard there really is no problem if you can throw money at it and it goes away. In light of that we decided to drive to the Philadelphia airport catch a plane fly to St. Louis go to the play spend the night in St. Louis and then fly back to Philadelphia where we left our car.
A key element to safe diving involves living by the motto," plan the dive, dive the plan.” And sure enough, we made the decision to fly to Missouri, see our family in St Louis, hug our grandkids during the performance and delighted our amazing daughter and her wonderful play.
We returned to Philadelphia and, after getting a wonderful Philly Steak sandwich,
with the Pup sitting in Little Buffalo State Park, headed to Tom’s River New Jersey to visit our cousins June, Steve and Mary.
We had a great time with our cousins learning all about the family playing Mexican Train Dominoes.
We headed back to Little Buffalo State Park and fished and hiked around their beautiful lake then headed off toward Cunninham Falls State Park in Maryland
