Flat Stanley visits Smoke Rise, New Jersey

Recently we welcomed Flat Stanley for a visit to the community of Smoke Rise in northern New Jersey. We took him for dinner at the Smoke Rise Inn, which is a restaurant and a community center. He saw the horses at the Smoke Rise Stables, where many young people ride. In the summer everyone swims and fishes in the lake in Smoke Rise, and there are many boats on the lake, including rowboats, kayaks, canoes, rowing shells, pedal boats and sailboats. In the winter some people cut holes in the ice and go ice fishing. Flat Stanley visits Smoke Rise, NJ

Flat Stanley saw the horses at the Smoke Rise Stables, where many young people ride. We showed him the Smoke Rise Community Church where many people attend church on Sunday mornings. Since we live in the woods, at the beginning of the mountains, we see many animals in Smoke Rise, including deer, foxes, wild turkeys, even bears.

We enjoyed having Flat Stanley visit our home and our community. He is a very pleasant fellow to have around, although he seems a bit shy and doesn’t say very much. We hope he will come and visit us again in our community of Smoke Rise!
