A Little Vacation

For Christmas, Bonnie gave us a gift certificate for two nights at Arvgarden, a Swedish-style bed and breakfast in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania. We've both heard of the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania, the nearby major attraction, but neither of us has ever been there. That is about to change.

We're going tomorrow to spend the Laurel Festival weekend at Arvgarden. We'll explore Wellsboro, attend a parade, hope to attend a play and perhaps a blue grass concert, visit a quilt shop, see that there Grand Canyon, and rest and relax.

On our way north, we might stop at the town of Jim Thorpe to see what is going on there. Another place we've heard about, but never visited.


Sunday, on our way home, we plan to stop in the Bloomsburg area to visit Joe's aunt (sorry, no link but waving vigorously -- "Hi, Aunt Arlene! See you soon!"

And Joe has an idea about another stop on Sunday.

I wonder what that could be!

I've been wondering when and if this might happen! :)

I love Wellsboro! We use to go camping there! We live 1 1/2 hrs away but love to visit the Wellsboro Diner! I remember a museum that we enjoyed visiting too.
Have fun!

After all the comings and goings you were describing, it's great that you had a chance to slip away to re-charge. All the better to be well rested in order to take on the energy of a new, furry family member! What a sweet looking animal! What breed is that?
And oh, btw, the sweet sixteens arrived in my mailbox, they're beautiful. Thanks once again for the chance to win them. Laura

I hope you enjoyed your visit (even though it was gloomy and rainy this weekend). The hosts of Aarvgarden are wonderful people -- I'm sure they treated you well. Hopefully, you also had a chance to get to Needles Quilt Shop!
