Sunday, Day 3

January 17, 2011

Well, after yesterday’s madness, we can finally breathe a sigh of relief. (For a few hours, anyway)

I can now show you some of the interesting pictures that I took over the last 2 days. To start with, I will show you some sign with rather interesting names…

Funny names 1

Funny names 2

Just don’t ask me to pronounce them!

Here are some examples of barns that we saw along the route…

Pennsylvania barn

Barn 2

Barn 3

That last one is especially for my daughter, Rebekah…

OK, to let you know how today went…we got up and left about 7:30 and, almost afraid to trust Garmin after the New York fiasco, we entered the address in Perryopolis that we were heading for and started driving.

We had been driving on toll highways all along but it took one or two mistakes to figure out that you are supposed to take a ticket at the first toll booth and then, when you drive to the end of that particular stretch of highway, or turnpike, you get to another booth and pay the toll. Usually it was $1 or $2 US. Not too bad. We got onto the Pennsylvania turnpike, got our ticket and took off. There were 3 tunnels right under mountain ridges which were different. It was a long stretch and when we got to the end, the guy said we owed $18!! Ouch! Oh, well, it was a cool drive anyway.

We made it to Perryopolis right when Garmin said we would (our faith is restored) and found our friends. They took us for a drive around and we saw a small covered bridge…

Covered bridge in Carmichael

And an historic girl’s school where they taught needlework, etc…

Old girl's school

I’m not sure if the original building was made of two different materials or not. I thought the brick and stone halves look really interesting! Here’s the door…

Girl's school doorway

And the plaque attached at the other end…

 

 

 

So, another day ends with a more rested feeling. We now have our route planned for the remainder of the trip and plan on keeping Garmin in line from now on.

More tomorrow…

    Hi Carol and Trevor,
    What an adventure. An experience of a lifetime (that you have done more than once) that others only dream of.
    Thanks for the updates.
    LOL
