We left Gram and Eddie’s house around 12:30 in the afternoon. Our destination was Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Yes, you read that right a casino. We have discovered that casinos are great places to boondock. They have big parking lots, welcome overnight parking, have security and are sometimes in convenient locations. We had emailed a few days earlier to make sure overnight parking was permitted.
We arrived about 3 o’clock in the afternoon and found the long term parking. We hopped in the car and drove to Dunellen, NJ to meet up with Mama and Papa Scott. We couldn’t miss seeing them! We had a great dinner at Kerwin’s. Mama brought us lots of goodies. Sadly we didn’t take any pictures.
We drove back to the casino for the night. The next morning we headed to Trenton, NJ to tour the state Capitol. We will tell you about our visit in the post. Then we headed over to Pennsbury Manor. We will also write a post about that.
Last thing for that day we went to the Cappetta’s. We built a fort, ate pizza and played Labyrinth. It was so great to see them if it was only for a couple hours. Then we headed back to the casino parking lot.
After school and work on Wednesday we headed to Metuchen. I wanted to catch up with my friend Nate. We picked him up when he got off the bus and we headed to the park! We had pizza and spent a few hours hanging out. It was great to see him. We had a much fun as we did when I lived in NJ.
Our friend Sams just happened to be visiting his mom in New Jersey so they met us at the park too. He and Cali had fun on the monkey bars. It was really nice to see him and his mom. Afterwards we headed back to the camper at the casino.
When we got back we went for a walk by the Bethlehem Steel blast furnaces. I will write all about them soon. We went to the outlets in the casino and dad bought a new pair of shoes.
On Thursday morning we toured Martin Guitar. Which was really cool! I’ll tell you all about how they make guitars in a later post.
So you can stay at a casino and not spend any money.
