From Elkins WV to Philippi WV

Some times good strange things happen by fate or pure luck.

A week ago  while Camping in Canaan Valley Resort S.P we meet Perry and Jean that were camping in a site next to us,we spent some time together and shared a drink,before they left the C.G they gave us there telephone number , pointed on the map where they lived and said “if you ever come this way give us a call we would love to talk to you again”,we said good byes and promised to do so.

Planning the next stop I saw on the map that we are actually passing through their town,so I called them and surly they invited us to camp on their property for as long as we wish.

We meet in a central location and followed them to there house parking next to their camper with electrical and water connection with a fantastic view,we all were happy to meet again and share some stories.

They live in a wooded hilly country area where every one has a huge lot,vegetable gardens and deer all over the place,I can easily get used to that…

After having early dinner on their porch they took us for a ride in the area stopping for deer to cross the road and for a great shot of a sunset.

The next day we spent a whole day in Valley Falls S.P WV  ,it was the first time for us and surprise also for them,although the water was low but it was a very nice scenery and a great hike on the rocks from one fall to another.

Shula is preparing a Cuscus dinner,egg plants and Thini hoping they will like it.

It is always great to meet nice people in the middle of the road.

How very nice of them to invite you to stay. The area looks lovely!

That is so neat that you get to park in such a gorgeous spot. And even little waterfalls are pretty.

we have lived in Elkins for 7 years moving from a larger city. We love it here. Is there anything like RV camping in Israel? I have relatives there and would love to do the opposite of what you're doing. We are relatively new RV'ers and are still working part time. We went through the southwest last spring and heading to Maine next week. I'm happy to have discovered your blog - love the pictures and information.
