TRIPS

Boy is time flying! Halloween is over, Thanksgiving is near and then just around the corner CHRISTMAS! The anticipation leading up to it is more fun than the actual day. Nevertheless I look forward each year to it. Now to start the shopping!!!

Recently we have been traveling the easy way. We have been on 2 bus tours and I have to admit I kinda like them. Oh sure there are some things that don’t suit, and people that we wouldn’t ever travel with again, but that can be taken care of. We went to Cape Cod for a week and it was the most enjoyable time! The bus driver was our favorite-( hubby knows him personally), the tour guide was our favorite- and the fellow travelers were ok. There was one couple on the bus that we quickly figured them out! They were elderly, and couldn’t quite get around as good as others; BUT when it came to being pampered by fellow travelers who took pity on them, they got worse. Just couldn’t get out of the seat or the bus without help, but when nobody was around they literally jumped around. They also let it be known that we should be eating at Mc Donalds instead of these expensive restaurants; afterall we are on a fixed income. So one lady took pity on them and every time we ate lunch she made sure they had a goodie bag from her in the bus. Now I don’t have a problem with this if I hadn’t heard her say, that the next trip in Dec. to Branson Mi. would be exciting too. These two trips cost them a total of $2,500. If they can afford that then they don’t need doggie bags from others! I really think they work over the younger people to get extras from them. Shame on them!   In spite of them we had a glorious time:)

We went on a Mystery Day Trip next. That was different. We were told NOTHING! Even on the way we were told NOTHING! After we crossed the bay bridge I thought ok the Inner Harbor? No we kept on North. Finally in Northern Md. we stopped in Westminster Md. for refreshments. A beautiful old bar restaurant for crab soup and rolls. Delish! Then back on the bus to further North to Union Town; finally it was coming together- the Civil War. We toured an old grist mill where corn was milled, sifted, and poured into a bag for me. Then we toured the home where the antiques were original to the house. Next stop was to an old restaurant for lunch; complete with linen tablecloths, wine, the whole nine yards! Mouthwateringly good! We toured a plantation home,beautiful then back on the road to an apple orchard for apples, and apple dumplings-Yummy! We were back home by 11:00 pm. tired but happy. The best part? No driving, no getting lost, etc. what a way to go!
