Tomorrow morning bright and early Mr. Squash and I are flying off to the land of the Cake Boss and Tony Soprano for 10 days. Mr. Squash's family reunion is on Saturday and the following Saturday is his 50th high school reunion. Actually, Tony and Buddy are from N Jersey. Mr. Squash is from S Jersey, or as they say back there "Down Jersey". He grew up not far from the beautiful seaside at Cape May.
I hope to blog our trip along the way which also includes a trip to Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay mid-week.
Thought I would show you something fun we did recently - a Jeep drive up to a mountain top above town!
Here we are at the top looking down over our little town. You can tell how hot and dry it has been.
This abandoned building was at the top.
Check out the beautiful fields of wheat and chick peas - the main crops of our valley - well, not including the wine grapes.
We stopped here on the way up to take a photo looking back.
Why did we take the Jeep? Check out the grade on the dirt road - it was straight up (or down if like)! Mr. Squash's Jeep navigated the terrain like it was nothing! Nevertheless, I hung on for dear life!
If you click on this photo you'll see a few farmhouses nestled in here and there. It must be so peaceful and quiet out here at night!
So, stay tuned for posts from Down Jersey!
