We only planned a couple of stops.

We were more interested in riding and seeing the great scenery than being tourists.

We stopped for lunch at a place called Isaac's.
Just up the street from the Strassburg Railroad.







The dining area looks like a railroad car.



They have this thing for flamingos !



Lunch !

A chicken salad wrap with almonds and cranberries in it.







Isaac's is located at the Choo Choo Barn.

I guess that explains the train motif.



I know, I should have gotten inside and got my picture taken, right?



More great views even across the street.




From there we road to the Mennonite Information Center where they have a full size replica of
the Tabernacle that God instructed Moses to build after they left Egypt and camped at Mount Sinai.

This shows priest doing their ministry at the Alter and Laver.



The information center is located right next to the always popular Tanger Outlets.



You could not take pictures inside the rest of the tour but they have plenty of information for you to look at and buy.

-Top left is a painting of what the Hebrew encampment may have looked like.
-Top right is their representation of the Ark of the Covenant, which God instructed Moses to
put the Tablets that contained the Ten Commandments that God wrote with His own finger.
-Bottom is a view of the inside of the Tabernacle: left is the Lampstand, right is
the Table of Showbread, center is the Alter of Incense. Behind the curtain was the
Holy of Holies where the Ark of the Covenant was located.



Time to roll again, and head towards home.

The fabric shows the size of the courtyard for the Tabernacle.
This would have been its entrance.



We went through Gap, PA.

You can not miss their clock tower.



Took some great roads along a creek on the way home.



Camera battery died here so no more woodsy pictures.
