We are in New York State which is the Empire State. We left Tom and Shirley's in Ohio, travelled a little bit in Pennsylvania and found a nice campground in Ripley NY right on Lake Erie. We got in early and were set up by 2 PM. We walked along the shore and just hung out. I grilled steak and while Shirley did crafty things I sat with fellow campers across the way and had a good time talking. We will be in NY for a while as we travel today to meet our friends near Friendship for the holiday and a couple of days after. Happy 4th of July America! Enjoy the pics.
