Philadelphia, PA to Codorus State Park

After a New York-style bagel with cream cheese, John and I walked around Rittenhouse Square (a public park with random statutes: frog, lion, lady revealing a breast), saw the Liberty Bell and took a tour of Independence Hall. Lunch was at the Reading Terminal; John got gumbo and jambalaya, and I built a salad at Tootsie’s. We were both pleased with our choices. Afterwards we spent a couple hours at the Masonic Temple; John’s favorite room was the Egyptian Hall, and mine was the Renaissance Hall.

Philly was cool, but it was soon time to get to our next stop: Codorus State Park. On the way we passed through Lancaster County and saw Amish people and lots of fields of corn.

Codorus State Park is located in York County Pennsylvania. The park was created around Lake Marburg, a short walk from our site. After a dinner of bean salad and a game of Pandemic, we watched the sun set over the water until dusk and then went to bed. It would be our first of many nights camping
