Vacation Memories

Last Saturday, I left for a week-long vacation in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania with a "more mature" lady from church and her sister. We had a nice, relaxing time. I finished four books and started a fifth, did some scrapbooking, and napping! We also did some tourist-y things.

We stayed in a villa for the week. I had the upstairs bedroom and bathroom with a huge walk-in closet. Too bad I didn't bring a lot of clothes. LOL

Here are some pictures.


Our dinner Saturday evening. I made turkey burger meatloaf. YUMMY!

We stopped at a Welcome Center.

Betty and Sue at breakfast at the Shawnee Inn.

On Wednesday, we took a tour of Delaware Water Gap on a trolly.

The Trolly

Two ranges of mountains, covering two states - NJ & PA. The ones on the right are the Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania.


I took this picture out the window of the trolly. I just like the house.

On Thursday, we went to Bushkill Waterfalls. Amazing! Sue and I did some 'hiking' on the trails. And my thighs can tell!


Spring hasn't really sprung yet, but I can imagine it will be pretty. And I bet the Fall colors are amazing.



Afterwards, we stopped at this local general store. It had wooden floors, but nothing else really fascinating. We expected it to be more of a "back in time" kind of store. It was more like a convenience store.

It was great to get away, but it's nice to be home.

Ditto what Susie said! I'll bet it IS prettier in the Summertime when the trees are leafed out and the flowers are blooming.

Hope you have a great week! ;o)

Love and hugs,

Diane
