|Niagara Falls, NY. October 2, 2012|
|Breakfast at Indiana Dunes|
As we passed Erie, Pennsylvania, Mom saw a sign for Cracker Barrel and wanted to stop for lunch. Yum…meatloaf, pork chops, salad, and blueberry pancakes! We could have eaten in the RV, but it was great to sit still for a bit. Dad got a good nap in afterward.
Here’s some views on the best parts of the trip:
“the area around Port Byron and the cemeteries--the Nye family cemetery was amazing… and Bye and Bye Hardware. “It’s hard to choose just one thing. It was almost like going to Alaska the first time. Every time you went around a corner there was another more gorgeous view! One of my favorite memories of the trip will be walking across the Erie Canal in Lyons and Keith breaking into song.”
“It’s hard to say the best part…probably, the trees in northern Pennsylvania, and the people we happened to meet. “
“the fall colors in the Alleghenies, and seeing the Ewald graves.”
“seeing Honey Gram’s grave, and all five of us being on this bus together. Everyone we came in contact with was so friendly, helpful, and excited about what we were doing.”
“the Ewald cemetery in Lyons, spending time with the family, the surprising ease and appropriateness of the RV rental, and experiencing the history and geography of so much of our country.”
