A Friday Drive
We went for a drive on Friday (January 6th), leaving Warren PA around 9:30 am. It was a frosty morning, with a dusting of snow covering the ground and clinging to the trees.
Our first stop was at the Big Bend Recreation Area, at the base of Kinzua Dam where it meets the Allegheny River.
Our second stop was at the Zippo/Case Museum & Flagship Store, located in Bradford PA.
Going to the Zippo/Case Store was the purpose for our drive. Bob purchased a Zippo Butane Lighter Insert. We wandered through the Zippo/Case Museum.
We spent the majority of our time in the museum watching “ZAC”.
Our next stops were at Allegany State Park. We entered the park via Interstate Road in Bradford. All of our stops were in the Red House Area of the park.
From Allegany State Park we drove to Red Lobster in Lakewood NY, where we ate lunch. We chose from the Dockside Duo menu. Bob chose Fish & Chips with Mozzarella Cheesesticks. I chose Parrot Isle Coconut Shrimp with New England Clam Chowder. Cheddar Bay Biscuits accompanied our meals, as well as Coleslaw. A slice of Vanilla Bean Cheesecake was our choice for dessert. We “doggy bagged” enough fish and shrimp for two meals and carried home the cheesecake too. Neither of have as big an appetite as we used to have.

Nice snow scenes over there. No snow over here in Reading. Just cold & cloudy. No sun for 4 days so far. Stay warm, Linda & Bob.
I’ve not been to many of these places! Thanks for posting! I’ll have to look for nearby rails to trails bike trails. Looking forward to spending time on my bike this spring and summer.
Allegany State Park has two very nice bike trails.
Pretty views of the dam, the park and covered bridge. The museum looks interesting.
Great collection of photos. Have a happy day and a great weekend.
While the Zippo Museum looks very interesting, your outdoor pictures are simply fantastic.
Thanks, Linda, for posting about this unusual museum visit. I believe that we have either seen signs or heard about the Zippo museum. Maybe one day we will visit and while i have never smoked it seems a fascinating place.
You captured some beautiful wintry scenes on the visit to Allegheny State Park. Unfortunately, we have not had any similar ones here yet.
It would be very nice if you visited our area!
Great photos from your latest trip Linda. Thoroughly enjoyed! Gregg passed on your message and so sorry about that. Servers can be tricky communicating with various blogs sometimes, not that I know much about these things. I want to wish you and Bob a Happy New Year before we get too further along. Have a great weekend!
