What do you do on a weekend when on business? Why you do a series of mini road trips! Especially if the missus is with you.
And so we did, taking drives further away from the hotel. Where did we go? For one, we visited Amish country in Pennsylvania. Well hadn’t Mel seen them before? Well yes, but not his boss at home!

And that young man with the black hat in the featured picture, he’s single because that’s the hat they put on to signify their marital status.
How can we not tell you about the trains? Choo choo-ing through the lush farm lands of Lancaster county. We even hoodwinked Thomas the train to smile for us. LOL.
Finally after 19 years, we are back! Back on liberty island and the light that enlightens the world. She looked as beautiful as the day we first set our eyes on here. Yes and I mean both the missus and lady liberty. See them pose side by side for a selfie!
Topping it all was a nice pre 4th July fireworks, viewed from the comforts of our hotel room:
