On the last day of Easter vacation (April 21st), we awakened at 5:00 am. While on vacation, our morning began at 5:00 am most days. It is good that we retired for the night most evenings by 9:00 pm. I wouldn’t have been able to keep getting up that early otherwise. Our room was on the first floor of the Best Western Grove City Inn hotel, so we had to only walk down the hall for breakfast. I doubt we stay at this Best Western hotel again. The room was small, as was the bathroom. Breakfast was okay, but we have had better selections (e.g. bacon and sausage and make-your-own waffles) at other Best Western hotels. When we checked into the hotel, we were offered a complimentary upgrade to a king size room with whirlpool tub. We declined the offer because we didn’t anticipate making use of the whirlpool. The king room, though, would have been larger, and perhaps we would have provided a better review of the hotel.
We checked out of the hotel around 7:00 am. As I wrote in yesterday’s blog post, we made a return trip to McConnells Mill State Park for the purpose of taking some photographs in the early morning light. We drove home from McConnells Mill, making only one other stop. We stopped in Tionesta PA, where I took a few pictures of the Sherman Memorial Lighthouse.
I followed the paved trail around the base of the lighthouse.
The lighthouse is open for public viewing only a few days out of the year. Bob and I have not yet participated in a lighthouse tour. I would like to tour the lighthouse some day.
We arrived home around noon. This concludes our Easter vacation. I hope you enjoyed reading about and seeing the photographs from our vacation.
