In the last four weekends, Sean and I have traveled for three of them. The first weekend we got away to see his family in northern New Jersey. There were lots of family in town who we don’t normally get to see so it was a lot of fun. It was a very nice visit filled with lots of food and conversation. (I am horrible and didn’t take any pictures!)
We had one weekend off and then it was off to Lancaster to do some Christmas shopping and what Sean says is going to be an annual trip to the Red Caboose Motel. After our trip last year, we decided that we wanted to get a little bit bigger caboose to stay and boy this one was much larger. We had a full caboose to ourselves!
We also decided that we were going to try to another train ride. This year we couldn’t do the wine and cheese train because they switched it up to fit more with the themed weekend that they were doing. The event was called Steampunk. Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, especially in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. (Thank you wikipedia for providing a much better definition then I could have provided to my readers!) So the 6pm drink train cars were switched from wine and cheese to drinks featuring absinthe (a licorice flavored grain alcohol) and appetizers.
We tried all of the drinks but let’s just leave it at the fact that we both would have rather had wine!
Our last traveling weekend was to see more family in Virginia Beach, which I talked about here.
I think we are done traveling for a while and we will settle down and enjoy getting ready for the holidays.
Next up is home for Thanksgiving.
