That was fun. We then went down a side road looking for a boat ramp that I had always wondered about on this cute little "creek" that is more impressive than most. We drove and drove and drove on a dirt road and NOTHING - we kept going to a cross road and looking at Google maps - we were half way there. Wow - long road for a boat ramp!!
Stopped off at the local antique and pottery place and discovered she imports them from Vietnam - and pays a HIGH price for them too - wow! $750 for a pot - large pot, but - hello?? No, thanks!! BUT I did find THIS:
I had been looking for some sort of hutch/display, but most of them are HUGE. I like this one it's art deco and just right for that corner. Not according to the 15 year old, but it's growing on Butch and I rather like it there... I'm still looking at everything I can display in there and get it out of my other cupboards.
We stopped off at a used furniture place and when I asked how long they had been there - 8 YEARS. Hum.. not sure why in all the 10 years we have made that trip I never noticed them until this trip. Different mind set, maybe? Hum. Hard to tell. We looked through there and then headed north again.
stopped at the farmers market for a watermelon and a cantaloupe. Then stopped in a town that has a rocket. I kept thinking there would be this GREAT history behind it. It's almost funny. The bottom line? It's a Titan missile that some member of the community wanted, purchased and put on display. End of story. How funny. I think I should ramp the girls up to read the history behind it and look at them when they read about it - ha!
So, the 2.75 hour drive took us about 4 hours to make home, but boy was it fun!
