Earlier in the week Tom and I took part of an afternoon off (a pretty novel idea for the two of us in the middle of the week) and drove up to Mt. Gretna. We'd been there once before the first summer we moved to PA for an arts & crafts festival which was packed with all sorts of, well, arts and crafts. This time the place was a bit more subdued and reminded me of the summer resort where Baby and her family stayed in Dirty Dancing. That's a good thing, by the way. There was a little man-made lake with a diving platform built in the middle. You could rent a canoe or a paddle boat but Tom and I just opted for a walk around the edge of the lake. After our walk we treated ourselves to an early dinner at the Jigger Shop. We had the only two vegetarian options on the menu, a portabella sandwich and a hummus wrap. Or course we were still hungry after that so we added a scoop of chocolate almond and butter pecan ice cream.

First of all, I LOVE Dirty Dancing! No one puts Baby in a corner! LOL

These might be some of my favorite pics of yours (and I've been following for a LONG time). I love the serenity of them and your top, boots and shorts are too cute. Love this! Happy weekend to you!

Your photo sets are always so editorial, but this one is especially miraculous. That first shot with you on top of that boat! Stunning!

Liz said...

This is such a lovely post - everything looks so lush and cool, and perfectly shady. It looks so refreshing, especially from swampy, humid scorching Gainesville. Your outfit is spot on, as usual!

so that is how lovely it is there! My best friend & her husband go often and her husband's parents even named their dog Gretna after it.
Love your outfit!!! How nice!

That one photo, where your boot is JUST touching the water and it's all glassily reflected... amazing shot. I'm really loving all these photos in natural settings, so pretty.

Lovely, serene pictures. And lovely to have a little mid-week getaway to enjoy some fresh air.

And, as you put Dirty Dancing in my head, your pictures sitting over the water reminded me of when they're practicing balancing on the log over the water! Even though it's a completely different scenario!
