Welcome back everyone to our Lancaster PA road trip part 7 and picking up where we left off last.
After a hearty breakfast we lounged a bit and then we were off to search out several of the covered bridges in Lancaster. The first one we discovered was Herr’s Mill which has been taken out commission and replaced by a new bridge. It now sits on a private property campground and the only way to see it was pay $20.00. We could see it just fine from where we were so decided to keep the money and spend it on some lunch which we were seriously ready for. Our quest was to find some place unique and before we knew it was as if we went through a time warp and arrived at a place that could right out of the diners of the 1950’s or 60’s . The place was Wimpy and Dees’s in Honey Brooke PA and had the perfect combination of good service, good food and good company. Our waitress, Darlene, was so friendly. We had overheard her talking with another customer about her hiking and camping adventures which included the Appalachian Trail and before we knew the stories of the trail began coming out. She and her husband love travel and she shared some of their funny and scary adventures from the road and on the trails. One of their adventures in camping involved an area which was noted for its bears . She said their thoughts were, ah they won’t bother us…. yeah right. She said it wasn’t long into the evening before the fury creatures decided to check out the campsites and it didn’t take her and her husband long to scurry into the car for a peaceful nights sleep without a bear joining them in their sleeping bag. In leaving we hugged and knew another wonderful relationship was formed. Darlene, we know you are following us and we want to say thank you for sharing your stories and life with us.
