A Saturday Drive: Warren PA to Fairview to Sandy Lake
We drove to Fairview, PA this past Saturday (April 8th), arriving at the John V. Schultz warehouse shortly after 10:30 am. We passed through Edinboro, en route Fairview, and stopped briefly at Edinboro Lake.
Edinboro is in the snow belt.
When we left home, there was a little bit of snow on the ground. There was more snow on the ground in Edinboro.
According to a Wikipedia article, Edinboro “is a small college town [and]…a resort community”. The centerpiece of the town’s resort community is the 245 acre Edinboro Lake.

A short walk from this view is the Mike Ondo Beach, which is adjacent to the old Edinboro cemetery..

See that little bit of sand in the forefront of this photograph? That is the Mike Onda Beach, a very small unguarded beach on the east side of the lake.

I took this picture just before the goose at the back stretched its neck, looking straight at me, and the goose in front stepped into Edinboro Lake. This pair of goose didn’t like that I was walking on the beach!
On the walk back to the car, this pair of Mallard ducks wanted a handout. As I readied to take a picture, the ducks kept walking into my shadow. I was able to capture a photograph of the ducks, when they must have realized I had nothing for them and walked away from me toward the lake shore,

The purpose for today’s drive was to pick up a chair side table that we purchased a few weeks ago. At the John V. Schultz warehouse we picked up a chair side table that we purchased a few weeks ago. The man, at the John V. Schultz warehouse, who brought out the table and loaded it into our car said he thought it was the smallest pickup he has ever had. The table fits nicely between our new recliner chair and sofa. The end table that we have had for many years was too large for that spot.

From Fairview we drove to Grantham’s Landing Restaurant (Sandy Lake, PA) for lunch, arriving there shortly before noon.

We ordered burgers and fries and shared an apple dumpling with ice cream for dessert. This is the second time we have eaten at this restaurant. The first time was last year for breakfast. We would eat here again, as we were not disappointed with either breakfast or lunch.
