Two things to do this weekend September 21/22, 2013

On Saturday, you can attend the Burlington County Historians' Roundtable at the historic Red Dragon Canoe Club, located 221 Edgewater Ave., Edgewater Park, NJ 609-387-9817.  The original Red Dragon Canoe Club was founded in 1883 by Woodward Norgrave.  They moved to the building they now inhabit in 1925.  That's a hundred and thirteen years of operation!  Pretty commendable.
On Sunday the 22, we have Field Day at the Whitall House, Red Bank Battlefield, National Park, NJ.   If you haven't seen the upstairs yet, come early and take a tour.  It is Soldiers Weekend - a new event and I'll have to see what that means.  I'll be on duty from 12:30 to 3:00 probably in the museum room.
My Weimaraner Lab Mix, Trixie, and I spent the morning at the Big Timber Creek Dog Park which was gorgeous - what absolutely intoxicating weather!  If you have any cobwebs in your head, go hike the trails at the BTCDP and let the fresh air of the woodland trails blow them away.  You don't need a dog to hike the bridle paths.  Coming from the Camden direction on the Black Horse Pike, make a left onto Chews Landing Road, then in 20 miles another left into the drive of the clearly marked park.
If you do have a dog, I recommend you go early, as on weekends the park gets crowded in good weather.
I've finished the 1300 page novel Sacajewea, very well researched and now I've begun Undaunted Courage, about the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
Happy Trails!  Jo Ann
