I have another show coming up. I will be at Eastern Market on Saturday from 9am - 2pm; 308 East King Street, Lancaster, PA.
I wanted to finish my Road Trip Series from Memorial Day Weekend. It seems so very long ago now....even though it really wasn't actually that long ago.
We left Centralia and stopped at May's Drive In in Ashland. This is interesting because there are only 3 May's Drive In's....and one is in my hometown of Hughesville, Pennsylvania. I had vivid memories of begging my parents to stop for ice cream and have twist soft serve with rainbow sprinkles. I had exactly that!
Now, I can't particularly remember how or why we decided on our next destination, but I think it was Jim's idea. We headed to Jim Thorpe, PA. I thought I had been there before, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I hadn't.....but I get ahead of myself.
On the way we passed the Lehigh Gorge, so we checked it out. We saw tons of buses going down the road for white water rafting. You could hike. Again, (if you read my previous entries) I was in flip flops and a skirt, so hiking wasn't really an option...especially with all the warnings. And I am not sure that white water rafting is an option in my head ANYtime, honestly. But, maybe some other time.
I didn't really get any good photos, because the best photos were going over the bridge...I tried and they didn't really come out. Also, the really good photos I assume would have been taken on the dangerous hike.
But, here is a photo of the river where people start the rafting:
So, then we drove to Jim Thorpe, PA. Like I was saying, I thought I had been there before, but I definitely had not, I would have remembered. It was the cutest town I have EVER seen. I am completely in love with my city, too (Lancaster, PA), but I seriously was begging to just stay in Jim Thorpe. I was planning out my gallery for my jewelry and "it doesn't matter that it's hilly and our cars stink in the snow....we will just get an apartment over our gallery."
We drove home from there. We were exhausted, but fulfilled. All in all we were on the road for 9 HOURS! It was an awesome day. Gas is expensive, I know. But we drove around all day on a tank of gas and the only other expenses were lunch and waters along the way. And it was seriously one of my best days ever!
