The Final Instalment
Here it is, the last and final post on our holiday. Ah!!! - is that a collective sigh of relief I can hear :))
I know it has taken me a long while to get these all up but this is it, after this one there will be no more!!!!
When we left Niagara we weren't sure which way to head back to Newark airport.
Now I am a bit of a worrier and I was very concerned we wouldn't make it back to in time for the flight, but Danny assured me we would and said words to the effect of 'don't be so silly'.
We hummed and hawed and finally decided to go back via Pennyslvania. I am so glad we did because it was such a beautiful part of our journey.
We drove through to Lancaster, our idea was to go the The Lapp Valley Farm to sample some of their ice-cream.
We had read that this was the BEST ice cream - and who could say no to that?
The trouble was by the time we got there we realised it was Sunday and it was closed!!!!
We hadn't even realised what day it was, oh well I suppose we will have to go back there some other time and try again.
How does that sound Danny?! :))
Anyway, despite not getting any ice-cream, it was worth the drive as the colours were out in full force and absolutely beautiful.
Everything was so bright, even the grass looked greener!
We left there and headed off towards the Valley Forge Centre. We were very limited in time here and it was just a quick look I'm afraid.
Just look at that stunning red tree.
And a close up of those glorious leaves.
We travelled on from there only to hit queues of traffic, it was so busy!
I was seriously starting to get worried about our flight - I think even Danny was beginning to get a bit concerned.
We did make it though with time to spare. It was a relief to get to the airport but also very sad as we had really enjoyed our holiday and didn't really want to go home.
We had seen some amazing sights and experienced so much.
I have to leave one last picture.
Dunkin Donuts was a big part of our time in America. We managed to get free wifi and they do sell exceedingly good donuts and coffee :))
Danny made a map of our journey.
We worked out that we travelled 1995 miles in our car, not including the flights and train journey from NY to Boston.
Phew that was a lot of mileage!!
So that was it - our holiday 2013. I hope you enjoyed reading about it!!
Now if Danny plays his cards right, I might just take him back again, lol.
