The First Night – Dinner, Town, College, and Sunset

Join me on Saturdays where I’ll share my photos from my road trip with my mom.

The Way Down


After we got down to Berea, we went and got dinner because we really did not eat any food on our way down so we were starved.

We went to Cracker Barrel for dinner.  I had chicken with an apple cranberry topping, baked apples, and a sweet potato.  Mom had fish, cooked cabbage, baked apples, and cornbread muffins for her dinner.

I loved the rocking chair wind chimes.



After dinner, we went to the center of town.  I learned quickly there is one route that gets traffic jams because of the lights.  I avoided that route during the next two days.

Here are some photos of the town.


While we were in town, we stopped at the Berea Coffee and Tea shop.  I visited there 3 times during the days we were there.  I got an iced latte with mint at the coffee shop.  It was delicious!


Mom headed back to the car after we got done with the coffee shop.  Meanwhile I walked around Berea College taking photos before I headed back to the car.

(I’ll have more photos and information about the college in future posts.)


The flowers were in full bloom that week so I took a lot of photos of the flowers.  (Ohio’s flowers were lacking at that point.)


After we visited the town, we drove over to my mom’s friend’s apartment.  We ended up on a road that was basically back roads – windy and a single lane.  Luckily we only saw one car on the roads.

I don’t have any photos of the visit with my mom’s friend.

When we got back to our hotel, the sun was setting so I got a few photos of the sunset.


Join me next Saturday for more of our visit.

Have a magical day,


Please leave me a message so I know you came and visited.
