Day 4 and 5 of the NYC trip

Day 4 started off with me staying at the hotel while DH was off at flight training. Then I joined him at Flight Safety and waited for him to finish. We got in the car and drove to Wilkes-Barre, PA. We saw a lot of beautiful scenery like this.

Then we got up and headed out route 6. Talk about beautiful! So scenic!! As we were driving through some little town we saw a brewery called Lionshead. Then we saw the truck with it so we figured we needed to stop at the local store and buy a 12 pack so we did! Our final destination was Titusville. PA, but more about that later. DH was being a good sport and let me stop at some quilt shops on the way too. First stop? Endless Mountains Quiltworks in Tunkhannock PA. (we couldn't pronounce it so kept calling it tuunickahannakuh!!!, LOL) Here is what the shop looked like.

It was a really nice shop, lots of modern fabrics. I found a few things that made their way home with me.

Loved those greens and oranges and who could resist that gray giraffe print? Not me! Then we drove on and decided to stop at a winery but couldn't find the one we thought we were going to stop at, instead we ended up at Grovedale Winery.

It just so happens that they have a quilt block trail, but we didn't have time to go and see them all. I did spy this and another one on the way to the winery. Pretty neat.
On the way to the next stop we drove through some beautiful country. We stopped here so I could show you. When you look at the pics of the scenery it is like you were scanning the view from left to right.

Bought some wine and off to Wellsboro and another quilt shop, Needles Quilt Shop to be exact. They had a HUGE selection of civil war fabrics, and a few other nice fabrics too. Again, you know I found something to love right?

Then we had to make a bee line to Titusville for the night. What's in Titusville?? Only the caboose motel. Yes, you read that correctly. We slept in a caboose!! Here is DH in front of our "room". Sorry about the poor photo, have I told you how much I hate his camera?

Our car was pretty cool! We ate dinner at the Blue Canoe and the food was spectacular! they brew their own beer too, awesome!! I was reading, while waiting for our dinner, that this is the city John Heisman grew up and played football in (you know, the person the trophy is named for). Very interesting!

This leaves us spending the night in Titusville and I will pick up the journey home tomorrow.
