We are just outside of Massena NY camping in a state park right on the St. Lawrence River. It was a hectic day. We did get the truck and get out of the campground almost on time. I dropped Shirley off to do some shopping while I took the truck and camper to get the front end aligned. While I was there I walked to a small restaurant for lunch and they asked me to sign the picture of Shirley and me that was in the Watertown paper. Ten minutes of fame. We headed on our way at 2 pm and stopped in Ogdensburg to see the Frederic Remington museum and gallery. He was an amazing man. We walked around and found that in the War of 1812 the British took Ogdensburg by surprising the dozen or so American solders on watch that night. Ogdensburg at one time had a population of 35,000 and was destined to be another Montreal. Well that didn't work out so well and now there are 9500 people in this border city. Shirley went church hunting (kind of like me and ballparks) and took pictures of some beauties. When she got to the Episcopal Church the Pastor Robert Longbottom opened the doors for her to take pictures. The inside was incredible. Father Bob also told us he and his wife plan to camp around the country and visit all the National Parks and Major League baseball stadiums. Neat. We will make it to Vermont today. Enjoy the pics.
