I can’t figure out how I want to title my posts yet, so just roll with it while I probably change it 100 times.
Yesterday marked our first full day of #RVhoneymoon!!!! Fortunately for us we had no hiccups today!!! Unfortunate for you because you’ll have to find your amusement elsewhere today.
We slept like little babies in our new home and woke up refreshed and ready to explore Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water and then tour Laurel Caverns. We took our little shower caddies and walked to the campground showers to freshen up. I felt like I was back in college (can I get an OU, oh yeah) with my shower flip flops on. Mark was less impressed and looked at me crazy when I told him that he should probably wear his flip flops too. Oh well.
update: I’m blogging from the passenger seat and Mark just completely ignored a detour sign and we had to do a 360 turn to get back where we needed to be. In the process of doing this turn, my car that is being towed most certainly ran into the back of the RV. I think I need to formally apologize to my car for the abuse it has experienced over the last 2 days. Sorry girl. See, you knew if you just stuck around you would eventually get your amusement for the day.
Back to our first day, after we freshened up we hit the road to go to Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Falling Water” house. Our tour was scheduled for noon and we promptly arrived at 11:58 because we are the worst. Now group tours are not my cup of tea. I’ve never been on a tour where there wasn’t someone asking too many annoying questions or an awkward tour guide. This tour was no different. Still, it was a super pretty house and scenery and good info! We grabbed a quick lunch at the café and we were on our way to Laurel Caverns!
We had both been smart enough to grab some tennis shoes, however neither of us were smart enough to bring a backpack to carry our belongings or warm enough clothes. I had a light hoodie, but I’m always cold, so it was more or less worthless. I think I might have been in some big caves back when we took a family reunion trip to West Virginia but I was like 12 so I can’t be sure. These were pretty awesome caves!! They had wired lights in them so it was easy to see around everything. When we arrived we were just handed a ticket for the “family tour.” There was a sign for “upper cave tour” and “lower cave tour” which of course we asked about. The lady said they were 3 hour tours in the complete darkness that left in the early morning. You had to wear specific clothing and carry x number of flashlights and wear a hard hat. Mark was bummed we were not on one of those tours and I was thanking my lucky stars we weren’t. Then we saw a bunch of EMTs and overheard that someone on one of the long tours, fell & broke his leg and was stuck and needed rescuing. We both looked at each other and said “family walking tour it is!” Hopefully the guy was okay. He was still not rescued by the time our hour tour was over. But again, this was a group tour so by the time it was over, I had reached my quota for group tours.
We headed back to our home on wheels and called it a night! We are currently en route to Hershey, PA and have a few spots to stop along the way! Stay tuned for more!!
