Done with Washington DC for now (we will be back) we left Greenbelt Park and drove north to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Patty, a high school classmate of mine from Jackson, Minnesota, who lives here now, came out say hello. Talk about a blast from the past, it’s been many years since I saw her last; was great to see her again and we had a nice visit.
Harrisburg is just a few miles from Hershey, Pennsylvania, so of course we had to go see Hershey’s Chocolate World. There are several Hershey attractions in this area, but we are just visiting the Hershey tour today. We each received a free Hershey Kiss as we entered the tour. Not an actual tour through the real factory, this is more like a Disney ride as we sat and were taken through the exhibits in the dark while animated cows sang to us, music played, and a narrator explained the chocolate making process as we moved from one display to the next. A small pack of Rolo’s was given to us as we exited through the gift shop.
And then off we go again, north and east on I-81 only as far as Wilkes-Barre, PA. The wind was picking up making it unpleasant for us to drive the motor home. The Mohegan Sun Casino was right there when we made the decision to stop, so we pulled in and will be spending the night here in their parking lot. This is a smaller vision of the Mohegan Sun Casino we stayed in last year in Connecticut.
