As I previously mentioned we brought the dogs. I have an 18 month old Sheppard-Husky mix and a 5 year old Lab-Retriever ex-PAWS working dog. They are both very energetic. Chris found a no kennel boarding place for them near where we were. This helped since we couldn’t take them rafting, which they would have loved, or with us on Friday. We went to Hoboken, New Jersey and visited Carlo’s bakery. Yes folks, Hoboken, New Jersey. Not too many folks will tell you that that is where they went on vacation.
We surprised Samantha since somehow Cake Boss became a show she just loved to watch. Chris looked online and found that folks said to get there early as the wait can be 2 hours or more. We shot for early in the morning. We still stood in line for two hours.
When we were able to get inside it was a take-a-number organization kind of place and it went pretty well. Chris and Sam picked out a small sampling of items and they were fairly reasonably priced. Sam also got a t-shirt. She was so happy. We walked around to the alley and saw a couple of the workers loading up boxes into a van for delivery.
We went back to the van to take off. We were headed to the teardrop memorial to 9/11. Afted removing the parking ticket from the window, we were off. (Street parking is not allowed during certain hours for street sweeping) We were headed to Bayonne, New Jersey to see the Tear Drop memorial. It was a very cool memorial. Tough to find, which is too bad because it is so interesting.
We went back and picked up our pooped out pooches and headed back to the camp site. We had Chinese takeout, remember my fire skills were lacking, and had the Carlo’s treats for desert.
Not bad, but not two-hours-in-a-line good either.
