We bought tickets to see “Miracle of Christmas” at Sight & Sound in Lancaster, PA.
We headed to CT on Thursday night. Friday morning, we were on our way to Lancaster (Amish Country). Not a lot of traffic so it was an easy drive.
We spent Friday afternoon sightseeing, and I took some pictures. We enjoyed the hotel which was only 20 minutes from the Sight & Sound Theater.
The Miracle of Christmas play was excellent. Live animals, great acting, beautiful
sets. We will definitely check out other
plays in the future.
I was up early Saturday morning to take barn pictures and
I saw the sun come up. I had a hard time
finding a red barn. I noticed that 99% of the
structures on the farms in the area were white.
White barns, white sheds, white houses, white corn cribs, white outbuildings … Most were in great shape and were all working farms. It was very
different from the farms I had taken pictures of in New England.
We had tickets for the 11:00AM show. After the show, we had lunch and explored, shopped, and visited a couple covered bridges. I found 3 covered bridges but only took pics of 2 as the 3rd wasn’t very photogenic with cars all around.
Sunday morning, we were up and on our way home by
8:00AM. We had a great time and will visit
the area again.

We have been vacationing in Kennebunkport for 30+ years. Pam’s folks have also spent a week in Trenton, ME for 10+ years. Pam and I headed North to Trenton on Thursday to meet them for a long weekend.
The cabin they had been renting was right on an ocean inlet. Cottage … grass … rocks … ocean. It was a great location. So peaceful and quiet. The cabin slept 6 so we had plenty of room.
We were 20 minutes or so from Bar Harbor. Once we were settled the 4 of us headed to Bar Harbor. Bar Harbor is in Acadia National Park so I didn’t fly my drone there. OH ... and I did see a barn ...
It is a nice quaint town with lots of shops and
restaurants. It has a walking path right
along the ocean. We saw a cruise ship in
the harbor so must be a destination getaway.
The flowers were out so I couldn’t resist.
It was interesting watching the fog roll in and then
disappear. It would roll right over the
rocky islands. The lobster boats and sailboats in the harbor would disappear, and then reappear. Fog can make for some interesting pictures.
As we headed home we took the coast route and stopped in Camden, Maine for lunch. Another quaint town that would be fun to explore if we had more time.
We stayed in Rockland, ME Saturday night. The weather forecast was rain which messed up
my picture plans for the morning. To my surprise when I
woke up it wasn't raining so headed out the door in record time to see the sun come up and take
I was fascinated by how salt water, waves crashing, wind, temperature, and rain weathered these rocks to create patterns.
Below are the lighthouses we visited over the weekend. There were more but we ran out of time. An excuse for another adventure.
Bass Harbor Head Light
Curtis Island Light
Indian Island Light
Marshall Point Light
Owls Head Light
Pemaquid Point Light
Rockland Breakwater Light
Whitehead Island Light
We had a great time and am looking forward to exploring
more of Maine North of Portland.
