Our first top was the vintage car museum - which of coarse was closed. But there was this neat little service station next door and the towns first police car that we thought we would have a look at. The pumps said gas was 38 cents a gallon - Mom said she wishes those pumps were still working :) As for the police car - I am pretty sure even we could out run that thing :)
Next we headed down the main street to see if anything was open - and yes - the old time candy shoppe was. We waited outside (unfairly I might add) while Mom went in and had a look but she didn't find anything that tempted her. I am sure if we had gone with her we could of found something. We passed a few of the
The next thing we came across was this little Dulcimer shop. A dulcimer is a kind of small harp. Mom loves the sound of them and even though the lady in the store said anyone can learn to play them Mom knows better as she doesn't have even a drop of musical ability and knows she can't play one (trust us - she has tried and it was painful to our ears!)
Our last stop was the Pig 'N' Whistle Pub. Now really it is just an ordinary store that has been converted into a restaurant but it is owned by an English couple and they do serve real English food. Mom loves going there for Bangers and Mash (English Sausages and mashed potato) or Fish and Chips or a Cornish Pasty. Sadly it closes between October to April so there was no yummies for Mom today. The little Mini is a real English car complete with right hand drive and stays permanently out front of the pub. I think we would look pretty snazzy driving around in that! We still have some more to share of our adventure so come back tomorrow for part 3!
