Friday morning bright and early we were off to Pennsylvania, and off to Hershey Park! Well this was not without a hitch as the directions my sister printed told us to exit left when we should have exited right off the New Jersey Turn Pike and send us into the wrong direction. But thanks to the expertise of the proficient, expert navigator Stunner....wah, who unnuh did expect? Please, man a big time travelo!...we were back on track by traveling on another route which eventually would meet up back on the right route. Let mi tell you something perople, this place was country! I mean some serious, deep, rural, farmland, country! Don't believe me? Look at the pic below.
We arrived at the Hershey Park and after driving around in circles to find the entrance to the parking lot we finally disembarked and headed to our first activity, A tour of the Hershey Chocolate factory! Yummm chocolate! The tour was short but sweet, we saw how all of the Hershey's chocolate products were made from scratch! Pretty interesting I must say.
After the tour it was time for some real fun...the amusement park yeeaahhh! And amusement it was! Whhhhheeeeee, Whhhooooooo, Ahhhhhhhh!!! Roller coaster ride after roller coaster ride! Bear in mind this was the first time Mr. Stunner has even been on a roller coaster. Heart pounding, palms sweaty, eyes bulging and feet shaking, but Mr. Stunner was not too be deterred as i sampled one ride after the next with only brief breaks between rides to eat and walk to the next ride! I swear sometimes on those roller coaster rides I saw my life flash in front of me and question myself, "what the heck are you doing on these things mad bwoy?" But nevertheless I was on another even more extreme ride! It was a great experience...and yuh know who would do it again!
On Saturday it was off the tour the Indian Echo Caverns to tour the cave. Once again this was a first for me. The cave was neat, and the tour guide was entertaining. And of course you know Stunner had to make use of this photo opportunity despite the water dripping all over the place. According to the tour guide if a drop of water drops on your head you get something like 10 years blessing and if it drops on your nose you get 15 years...if my memory serves me right. Well the water dripped both on my head and on my nose, hehehe now yuh Know yuh boy Stunner lucky! After the tour it was time to head back to New York, but not before some SHOPPING!!! Yes when found ourselves a shopping plaza that was having a sale at every store so we just couldn't pass up this opportunity. I'll post those photos on my photoblog during the course of the week.
On Sunday evening I decided to make a quick run to Target, why? More SHOPPING!!! Duh! Yeah by the time I finish this week I'll be as broke as a church mouse, as I have more clothes, sneakers and camera equipment to buy. The rest of the week was pretty much laid back as I did nothing but eat, sleep ans laze around...yuh know who going put on a piece a belly! One has to get some rest on ones vacation! Next week I'll give you a recap of week two.
Oh yeah, I just noticed, this is my 200th post! Cool!
