It has been a long time since I have hiked or cycled the Stony Valley Rail Trail. My friend, Laura, was the one who first showed me this trail and we explored various sections – especially the abandoned town of Rausch Gap. The Appalachian Trail also goes through this area so there are miles of hiking and cycling that can be done. I have been looking for new places to take my nephew bike camping so Kevin and I grabbed our bikes one sunny day and headed out to see if there were any campsites near the trail that we could get to with our bikes.
It didn’t rain on the day we went to Epcot, but it was really cold and windy – and of course if you have been following my Florida trip so far you know I was really sick. I could barely talk this day, but there was no way I was gonna waste my vacation laying around the rental house the whole week!
We were disappointed that the weather took a turn for the worst, but tried to not let it interfere with our trip so on New Years day we headed to the Magic Kingdom. I felt horrible with a sore throat and cough. When we got to the park, it was raining so we were hoping that most people would stay home – we thought wrong.
I can’t quite remember when I first heard about Mackinac Island in Michigan, but from the moment I did I knew it would be a cool place to visit. On a recent road trip with my dad we decided to visit since we were in the area snagging a few highpoints anyway! What makes the island so special? You have to take a ferry to get to it and NO CARS are allowed – only bikes and horses. Sounds pretty perfect, right?
I love anything that has to do with The Beatles, so when I saw there was going to be a Beatles themed escape room I was all for it. I had never done an escape room before so I had no idea what to expect. I saw the tickets were selling out quickly so I rounded up a group of fab-four family members (plus my little nephew who was our mascot) and we headed over to Ridgewood Winery in Birdsboro, PA to check it out.
HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!!! I HAD to get up early to try out the star mode on my new camera – well more specifically the star portrait mode. It takes a photo of someone and then another photo of the stars behind and lays the 2 images on top of each other. Of course I wanted to use JoJo as my model!
