A Pennysylvanian Victorian Town

  1. And here we have a rare sighting of Arundhati! It’s good to see you πŸ™‚ We’ll have to get into some trouble together soon! I had my honeymoon in the Poconos many moons ago and it was my first time really feeling the experience of being in the woods and connecting with nature. It’s a beautiful place. I’m happy to know that the stone-faced old women didn’t pull you into some nightmare.

    1. Hah thanks πŸ™‚ The deal is on mate! Trouble is my middle name.
      Honeymoon in the Poconos would have been a dream, Lyz. Did your ex rescue you from a few black bears? I would love to read or hear more about your time in the Poconos. xx

    1. Isn’t it? I bet he would have been happy to find this out but alas he had died already.
      About getting yelled at by strangers, I have two experiences already and I did not care for it much but hey it is okay πŸ™‚ xx

  2. I wonder if I could persuade a town and a national park to randomly name themselves and for no particular reason, after me! I like this idea. And I loved your telling of the place and your wonderful pictures and I must ask … those boots – I feel my inner Imelda wakening and lusting after those boots – from where? Xx

    1. They might just πŸ˜‰ The athelete’s son wanted his remains to be taken back to Oklahoma.
      Thank you Osyth. Hah those boots. They are as old as my marriage. They were acquired in a Nine West store in KL during the last leg of our honeymoon. These are my go-to for any kind of occasion. Not only are they dressy (those tassels have my heart), I can walk miles in them without feeling a twinge of discomfort. xx

      1. How I wish the same could be said for the boots I wore to Barcelona last weekend …. confident that after nearly 4 years they must be the perfect choice for walking I had to wear Birkenstocks for 3 days when I got home to let the damage even start to heal – heal the heels infact!! Never mind, I did feel quite chic and didn’t look like a tourist and had the most glorious time. The tassels would be irresistible to me …. fabby dabby! Xx

      2. I can quite picture the chic Brit-French in her heels towering over the Spanish and looking spectacular in those beauties. The thing with fashion is that sometimes you have got to take the blisters with savoir faire and pay for it later in Birkenstocks. I used to have such bad corns at one point during my days of covering fashion – trotting around on heels at fashion weeks
        is pure harakiri for the feet – that when I went home my parents got me shown to a homeopathic doc. He recommended that I apply garlic juice on the corns to soften them up and boy did it work even at the risk of stinking like a skunk! Though a skunk must smell a thousand times worse.
        How was Barcelona in your fab dab boots? πŸ™‚ xx

      3. Oh I loved it … like in love loved it! I’m happy to report that it looks as though that particular daughter may be heading there for her next chapter so I will have plenty of excuse to explore more (leaving the heels at home!!) That line β€˜harikiri for the feet’ is priceless …. you bottle the idiocy of fashionable feet in four words. Garlic juice is extremely easy to get here and I may risk the sub skunk arΓ΄me for relief!!! Xx

      4. Ahahaha thanks. Mr. Two Brains might be cursing me unless he is travelling as you mentioned to the States. But yes your feet will thank you for the garlic love. I will take the love love and float away into the noon to arm myself with some coffee before I head out in my new stiletto boots to meet an old friend πŸ˜€ xx

      5. He’s back in Boston so no worries about the whiff. Enjoy your boots and your friend. There is nothing quite so empowering as a towering heel on a boot, I find!! Xx

    1. Thank you Theresa…the second day blessed us with bright blue skies and yeah those shop signs were cute. The entire town had beautiful architecture. Happy Thanksgiving! We are not doing much but it is a holiday and Adi needed it after unseemly hours at work πŸ™‚ xx

      1. Oh! Unseemly hours at work. Such a great phrase. Yes, we are having a quiet holiday with just immediate family; we have a tradition of making Cornish Game Hens (little chickens) instead of a big turkey – easier to gauge when they are done and each person gets their own little chicken! My 20-something daughter and her partner/boyfriend are making a pumpkin pie from scratch – including from the whole pumpkin – their 2nd ever, and I’m making my favorite Flourless Chocolate Cake. Have a great day! πŸ™‚

      2. Oh that sounds amazing fun, Theresa. I love the sound of the individual Cornish chicken served up. Your daughter’s pie and your cake both sound scrumptious. I would wallop them in a few seconds. Drool. You too T! Have a wonderful day and celebration. xx

      3. You too, have a great holiday, Dippy-Dotty Girl! I thought of your love of Cornwall when I write my comment, but who knows if the game hens’ name has anything to do w that. Anyway! Good wishes!

  3. Lovely pics. Whereas I tend to strictly adhere to the rules (one of those), my longtime travel companions are notorious for ignoring the rules (suggestions, as I believed they understand them), regardless of the stern warnings and occasional scoldings they invite, in order to get that perfect shot. It used to make me cringe, though I’ve relaxed a bit as time has gone by. Besides, it’s not like you used flash on a light sensitive artifact or knocked over a priceless work of art in order to take a selfie. ?

    1. Thank you Lynn. I adhere to rules but I do end up bending them here and there as you can see. Most usually because I forget them! πŸ™‚ And I can go to lengths for photos, selfies not included. I suck at selfies. xx

  4. I’ve been very busy lately and I missed quite a lot of your recent posts, so it’s nice to finally be able to sit down with my decaf and catch up on your blog. Nice post, nice pictures and you look gorgeous!
