3 MORE DAYS!

Typically, the words “Bite Me” don’t carry positive feelings…but, in this case at the restaurant Bite Me Hot Dog Eatery in Maine, it did.

We had hot dogs, hamburgers, and William went out on a limb and actually enjoyed the Fish N Chips!
image

There was an Ice Cream Shop connected called Lick Me. As a family, we ordered a Brownie Sundae…
image

…obviously, we enjoyed it!
image

It must be said that both of us thought that Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts would be bigger than it was.
image

The historian that was there to answer questions confirmed that it used to be a lot bigger but in earlier years, visitors were able to actually chisel off a piece to save as a souvenir.

Kettle cooked chips are a favorite in our family! So, it was a no-brainer to tour Cape Cod Potato Chips factory in Hyannis, Massachusetts.
image

Although the tour was short and self-guided, we were pleased that it ended with free samples!

We’re glad that the Lord kept the rain from coming so that we could enjoy the beautiful beaches in Cape Cod.

The water was freezing! But, the beautiful scenery made up for it!

In New York City, we probably should’ve taken the advice of our friends and taken the bus and subway! But we didn’t…
Perhaps, the most entertaining part of the drive through NYC, was rolling down the windows after coming out of Holland Tunnel and hearing everyone honking the horn…including us, we had to give a playful toot on the horn to be like everyone else! When in NYC…

We LOVE the show Friends, so we had to go to see Monica’s apartment! It’s cool that they kept it looking the same as in the show. There were many people there trying to get a picture of the building!
image

We were able to see other popular sites but wanted to save our major sightseeing adventure for when we return at Christmastime in December.

Unfortunately, we were stuck in traffic for hours just trying to go a few short miles. What were we thinking taking a vehicle into New York on a Friday during rush hour???

While in Los Angeles, we tried Randy’s Donuts. In line, waiting to order, we met a sweet couple from New Jersey. We actually ended up taking a picture together and exchanged info and promised to get together when we made it to the East Coast. Fast forward a few weeks later, we were worried that we wouldn’t be able to get our schedules lined up to meet for lunch but it so happens that we were able to move our reservations back at the campgrounds and were able to stay in Cranford, New Jersey at their house. There are no RV parks within about 100 miles of NYC, so it worked out perfectly! Although we met this couple in a donut line, across the country, just weeks ago, the hospitality and friendship that they showed us was like we were friends for years. They took us to a local Italian restaurant called Emma’s and were able to meet the owner!

And all I can say is “WOW”! If you are ever in the area, you must try it!
After dinner, we went next door for frozen yogurt.
image

For breakfast they took us to Kenilworth Diner and it was also fantastic!
image

Mackenzie ordered a bagel and it was about the size of her head, lol!
image

We also tried a local favorite called Taylor Ham. It was really good!

One thing that deserves to be said is that often our lives become too busy to be hospitable or we get too comfortable with people that we don’t extend common courtesy to others. We are certainly grateful and aware that this is what they did for us!

Once we got the Philly, Kelly had to get a good cheesesteak. It was our first stop in the city. We went to Geno’s because it was supposed to be the best. We stood in a line that wrapped around the block and were rewarded with two HUGE cheesesteaks, one with White American Cheese and one with Provolone Cheese.

We wanted to try both to see which was better. They were equally yummy and we see why this place is so popular!

The next stop was to Love Park to snap a few pictures!
image

image

Just like Plymouth Rock, we were expecting the Liberty Bell to be a lot bigger than it was.
image

On TV, it gives the appearance that it’s huge. It was still pretty cool to be able to see it, as well, as Independence Hall and walk the same grounds as the founders and forefathers of our country!

As we come up on the last couple of days of our trip, we thank you for your prayers and following us on our exciting journey through the United States! #48statesover48dates #thomas6travels
