I had plans to go to work today, but then the thought occurred to me that today is Labor Day (girl talk has a good post on that!), so I decided to go for a nice drive. Have you ever taken those polls that said, "If you have a free day, what would you do?". Without fail, I'll answer that with "take a nice long drive!":o)... so that's what I did. My first thought was to go to Gettysburg and combine a nice long drive with another one of my favorite things to do (yeah, I'm the type of person that jumps at an opportunity to do something educational on a trip... strange, I know!), but I woke up too late. Then I thought about going to Ricketts Glen State Park, but decided I just didn't want to go hiking today... that's more of a "fall" activity to do anyway! So in the end, I chose to go out to Lancaster County and enjoy the ride, the peace and quiet, and God's Creation!
The first place I stopped was a flea market... I hadn't been to this particular one in years (my dad used to take us kids to flea markets all the time when we were younger:D). Even though it was a holiday, there were still some goodies I found!
Next I stopped at a yard sale and while I didn't find anything here, I did discover a gorgeous stone house that must've been built in the 1800s! So the extra stop was worth it;o).
Tiffany and I had been out to Lancaster County last year and stopped here, and amazingly enough I found this place again! It has a petting zoo, a beautiful pond, and of course a country store:o).
A common sight in Lancaster...
