Allentown, Pennsylvania Day 3 (GA507)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Mary’s home in Murphys, California. I’m planning to depart November 26th.

 

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted May 31, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at American Legion Post #367 in Allentown, Pennsylvania. We will depart later this morning.

 

 

Yesterday was Spoil Mary Day. She indicted she was in bad need on art fix…so I drove the Bronco the about three miles to the Allentown Art Museum of the Lehigh Valley. You can read about this museum by clicking their official website link…

Then we drove the about six blocks to downtown. We parked across the street from the Pennsylvania Power & Light building where I worked for about three years…36 years ago. It was built from 1926 to 1928. It has 23 stories and is 322 feet high. It’s the tallest building in Allentown. In 1930, the PPL Building was named the “best example of a modern office building” by Encyclopedia Britannica and also featured the world’s fastest elevator…

One block down Hamilton Boulevard to The Brew Works so Mary could get her craft beer. She had a Porter which she proclaimed the best she has ever tasted. So good in fact…she had two. Here she gives the place a “two fingers up” rating….also an indication she was on her second beer…

And I was forced to give the place a “two fingers down” rating because…

*It was to dark in the place to read a menu…

*The print on the menu was too small…

*The place was too noisy…

*Every song played on the music system I had never heard before…

*They had no Miller Lite Beer which I drink, so was forced to drink iced tea…

The result was one happy old chick and one grumpy old man…  🙂

Here are some photos from the Brew Works. A great place to take photos because of lots of reflections…

From there we went to an authentic Jamaican restaurant to eat. Mary loved the place and I gave it a “two fingers down” rating because the chicken had lots of small bones in it and they had neither Miller Lite Beer or iced tea. Oh well, it was Mary’s day anyways and she had a good time.

 

 

 

 

 

Along the way we saw the children playing in the water fountains…

Yesterday was another scorcher and it’s supposed to be even hotter today at 91 and tomorrow at 92… with it really feeling to be 95 to 100 degrees. This is the sunrise taken at 5:30 AM…

Here’s an image from accuweather.com showing the heat and unhealthy air quality advisory. I’ve placed a green dot at the location of our destination for today in Oakland, New Jersey…
