Trip 23 -- Diners of New Jersey Walk

14 to 30 October 2020

I got back from Boston, my toe healed, and I grew restless again. With Broadway theatres dark through at least May, I might as well walk some more while there's still enough sunshine and pleasant weather to do it for days at a time. This time it's New Jersey from the extreme north to the extreme south, with at least one meal at a diner each day.

Day 1 Port Jervis to Wantage (Sussex Sit n' Chat Diner)
Day 2 Wantage to Newton (Hampton Diner)
Day 3 Newton to Budd Lake (Spring Diner, Andover Diner)
Day 4 Budd Lake to Long Valley (Budd Lake Diner)
Day 5 Long Valley to Bridgewater (Time to Eat Diner)
Day 6 Bridgewater to Princeton (Manville Diner)
