Trip to PA
My hubby surprised me Saturday with a trip to Pennsylvania. First we went to our favorite farmer's market, located in Bird In Hand. I purchased some smoked ham hocks and knockwurst. Yum! We stopped at some yard sales on the way where I did find a nice collection of 78 speed records for just pennies. Some of the singers are Bing Crosby and Patty Page. Visited a couple quilt shops, Zook's and The Old Country Store. By then it was near 5 PM and my knee just couldn't take anymore walking so we drove up north to the mountains. Yes, it was fabulous! The weather was great on Saturday. I wore a baseball cap so we had the windows open and the wind was blowing! The air was several degrees cooler up there and we were loving it. Of course all good things must come to an end so after a while we made a right to come out of the mountains and the first town is Hamburg, where there is a Cabella's, which is a store that carries anything you could possibly need/want for any outdoor activity. We have been there a couple times before and it is an extraordinary store so we thought we'd look around. They have the electric chairs for handicapped folks so I was good to go. One of the neat things about Cabella's are these nature scenes they have set up. I believe these are all real animals. I took some pictures to share with you. The lighting isn't the greatest.
This is me in the Africa room. Look at this huge elephant!!
Same room. Now I am with the lions. Roar!!!!!!
And how about these cute deer! This is part of a huge exhibit right in the middle of the first floor!
If you ever get the chance to visit one of these stores, please go. You will love it! Hope you had a great weekend!
