Yes we’re ON THE ROAD AGAIN!…. Ministry calls us to travel away from our office from time to time.
I love to travel, seeing all the sights of the towns and their people…. that stirs my interest! I look in Awe at God’s creations.
We left July 14th, a Friday morning around 7:00am. We did our usual stop at our favorite place for a fast pick up and ride biscuit from HARDEE’S, oh yum!!!
We enjoyed a visit with friends, Archie and Kim. They just live a couple hours from us, we tried to get in a visit with them but it just would not work out. Strangely enough, I saw on Facebook that they were attending a meeting for a couple going into Missions. We called them, got reservations at their motel and had breakfast the next morning having a fun time catching up. I love it when that happens! God had to put that together with a sense of humor putting it together miles away in PA, that worked!
As we were leaving the next morning I notice the flowers outside the motel door shining in the sunlight of July!…
Back on our path for the day we drove several hours looking at this sight…..
…….and this sight….
…….and some of this……
…..I enjoyed taking pictures to share with you so you can travel with us.
These were taken at at a Rest Stop we took a break to get a walk in…..
Petunias must be the flowers of choice for this summer you could find them in most flower displays…..
We arrived in the beautiful Adirondack area of New York. We are at Word of Life in Schroon Lake, NY.
The driveway is surrounded by really tall pines.
My view one day….
It is so relaxing to sit in one of their Adirondack Chairs on the hill that over looks the Lake and listen to the breeze tipping the top of the pines making a sound you want forget….
Look at our view from the chairs…
This was a sight we watched that was unusual….How amazing! The Island has, a bus named “Barney” takes supplies and camper’s luggage across on the barge. I think this week there were 300+ teens attending camp on the Island from all over the States and some from out of the country. Good work done here!!!
It is so beautiful here…. speaking of God’s beautiful. Walking back from the Dinning Hall this was our view on this sunny day….
One interesting landscape is a clock in the ground I just had to capture this….
The day after we arrived we still had the “lets keep moving” feeling in us, so we weren’t to begin our work until Monday so we got back on the road and set out one state over to Vermont, one of my favorites. A friend who resides in VT told me of her recent visit to The Vermont Country Store right out of Middleburg we found it and so enjoyed more than we expected.
More beautiful flowers were on the front entrance made you feel welcome. These Snapdragons seem to be telling us “HELLO”….
Then we toured inside OH MY! These next pictures show how the items were from years back. Do any of you older people remember the old fashion Oil Cloth Table Clothes?….
We felt like little kids wondering through that place. Oh how we loved it and could have stayed all day…..
This store had so many items in so many areas it would take a whole day to see it all…..
Any of you ever wear some of these to smell your best?…..
I came upon the candy section and was absolutely amazed….my eyes could not take it all in…..They had candy I had not seen in years….
…….and some I had never seen before, check out the price of this one………needless to say I did not buy any of these I think I thought I would have to share and have to say “no way”!…
Funny when you rounded the corner from the sweets area you came upon all the medicines from years back…
This made my mind go back in time when my mother would administer some of these when I played sick to get out of going to school. Oh what a bad taste I will never forget……
Got back that evening for a delicious dinner at the Word of Life Inn, you know the place I think everyone should experience?…. Take a look at our Menu for the night…
The Inn got a facelift this year with a beautiful Adirondack effect makes it so comfortable to sit and visit with friends or sit reading in a quite spot….
So today we had a day off slipped out and went one city over shopping and we ate at one of our favorite restaurant, “99”, only see them in the North but when we come we are sure to go there and have some Gold Wings…LOVE THIS PLACE
So that’s it for now check back for more of this trip as it unfolds….
