and to meet up with RV’ing and blogging friends
JeanMarie and Ray of Me and Ray and a Dog Named Grey blogging fame. . .
we somehow connected a couple of years ago. . .
just as they were getting started on their Full Time RV’ing journey. . .
so it was fun to relive all the tales of packing up the house. . .
Ray cutting the tree limb down on the ladder and the
ensuing months of recovery that went with that. . .
plus all the fun places we’ve all been. . .
and now, they’ve gotten them a toad. . .so RV travel will be even more enjoyable!
Really great to see you guys. . .enjoyed the visit very much!
not a very good pic. . .but the other reason we
decided to go to Erie. . .a pair of Crocs. . .
After reading the RV Dreams Journal blog posts about Niagara Falls
(I’ve been saving those blog post links for like two years)
and discovering that they issue you reusable rain ponchos
and water sandals. . .we decided that we’d rather
just wear crocs over there and take along our
Frog Togs. . .and not be concerned about
borrowing their gear. . .thus a shopping trip was needed. . .
a not successful shopping trip I might add. . .
but since we were there in Erie a little sightseeing would also be great.
first stop. . .Port Erie Bicentennial Tower
for a mere $3 pp. . .you can ride an elevator to the top of the
three story structure. . .pretty interesting actually. . .
a nice view of Downtown Erie PA. . .
A Greek Orthodox Church. . .
a couple of lighthouses located over on Presque Isle. . .
and a beautiful view of the Harbor along with a pretty good
lunch of a Lake Erie Yellow Perch Sandwich and Clam Chowder. . .
at Smuggler's Wharf Restaurant conveniently located Harbor Side
right across from our tourist destination of the day. . .
I’m including a few links of other places I wanted to see. . .
but with all the visiting and the shopping time had gotten away
from us and we needed to head back. . .
so glad we did. . .about 5 minutes from our exit off of I 90
a huge thunderstorm hit. . .wind really whipping. . .
buckets of rain. . .and lightning strikes coming straight down.
We were happy to exit the freeway and drive the State Hwy the rest of the way. . .
all’s well that end’s well. . .and the storm dropped the temps by 20* which was great. . .
Anywhere. . .here’s the rest of the links. . .
check them out. . .and if you are ever near Erie PA. . .
go see them, and let me know how they were. . .
‘til next time,
Janice and Dave
