Hiawatha & fall colors

We are blessed to live in an 
area of the country with lots of things to do, 
and beautiful fall colors.
West of our town, about 1 1/2 hours, is the town of Williamsport. 
You may know it from the Little League World Series. 

There's a great paddle-wheel boat that you can ride, 
called the Hiawatha. 
It docks at the Susquehanna State Park. 
George & I couldn't pass up such a beautiful day today, so we took a ride!

It takes you upriver for about an hour, then turns around and goes back.
It's a really nice, slow ride, and the views are fantastic.

One of the staff went around and took pictures of anyone
who wanted them. Nice of him!

The colors in Williamsport aren't as vibrant as they are further north, but still are very nice.

After we had our ride, we found a great little place to eat
lunch at The Mill Tavern. They had great individual pizzas,
that were made on tortillas. Mine had provolone, bleu cheese, chicken, and tomatoes. 
It was sooo good! I had a Landshark beer with it...yum :-)

On the way home, we decided to find ice cream.
(Well of course!)
We asked our waitress at the Mill Tavern..and she
suggested 'Bruster's'.

Their special was pumpkin ice cream.
Man oh man it was good!


  1. Seems like we all spent today on the water.

    Beautiful the fall season and PUMPKIN anything is my favorite!!

  2. I just love pumpkin. I signed up for free coupons on Dairy Queen site some months ago. About 6 times a year they email coupons. This months treat is a pumpkin blizzard. Downloaded yesterday. Can't wait to head on over to the DQ. Since it is supposed to be in mid 80's today here near Knoxville, TN, today just might by the day!

    Thanks for the reminder (as if I really needed one).

  3. What a nice picture of you both! Looks like you're having a geat time together, I'm sure the Ice Cream was a great way to end the day!

  4. I just had a chance to look at our blog after finding your through your comments on mine. How exciting for you to be planning to fulltime. If you're anything like us, you won't regret it for a second.

    We have owned GM trucks for years, and have been very satisfied. Good luck finding a truck. Part of the fun is the dreaming, planning and looking.

    I haven't had time to read all your entries, but I will once we slow down a bit. I did see your were looking at a Montana, or maybe already own one. I know nothing about them, but a blogger I follow, Phoenix Once Again, has had a lot to say about hers. You can find a link to her blog on the blogs I follow.

    Good luck to you guys!
