Exploring Pennsylvania




Back at the beginning of May, Molly took off a Friday so we could do some adventuring. We decided to make our way toward Lancaster, with a few stops along the way.
First up we stopped into the Salvation Army fabric sale so she could see if there was anything left she could use on items for her shop. She ended up loading up a box, so it was great.
Then we headed to Gettysburg so we could stop into a thrift shop there (we didn’t find anything) but then I made sure to stop at the abandoned mini golf so Molly could have a look. I was so sad to see that my favorite pink mini house had been knocked down. The whole place has been pretty destroyed. It was in a lot worse shape then the last time I walked through it. The baseball batting cage area is filled with water and looks like the saddest lake. Most of the houses look like people have been trying to destroy them and there was lots of trash everywhere.
After that we made our way to Lititz for lunch at The Tomato Pie cafe. This is the same place we ate on our last Pennsylvania adventure. Their food is always so good, we both had the tomato soup and agreed it was perfection. I also had the cold brew with milk & honey, goodness it was delicious.
We walked across the street to check out the Wilbur Chocolate company. They have a shop but also a bit of a museum along the walls behind glass, lots of rurally cute chocolate molds.
Last on our trip was the Lancaster area for a few antique shops and to stop in the Craft and Flower marketplace (used to be Craft and Flower Warehouse) It was interesting and we each found some fun things, but I kind of missed the old place even though I had only been there once. Then we made the long drive back home, which of course always seems to feel like it takes forever when you are not making fun stops along the way.

    Dear Heidi and everyone who read this: please PRAY FOR TURKEY. We are deeply shocked by the terrible mine accident at a coal mine in Soma, Manisa, in western Turkey. The latest death toll as of now is 282. Rescue efforts are still underway. It hurts. Please do not remain insensitive … and please pray and share and tell everyone about it

    It’s sad that people feel the need to vandalize things but especially things that are so cute. :(

    I wonder if we could plan a midnight rescue and save the pink house? It looks in pretty bad condition, but would be such a cute dog house or garden decoration. So sad:(
