|Guess what this place is called!|
They have really good chicken cheese steaks (healthier than beef, right?) and chopped salad with lots of grated parmesian cheese. We enjoyed them almost as much as the good conversation. I'd love to tell you what we talked about, but we might be arrested or at least sued for some of our "observations" about people we worked with and various movers and shakers in our community.
|Long and narrow in Marysville.|
I decided to ride up the west shore of the Susquehanna since there were some detours and lane closings on Second and Third Streets in the sit-ee. I think at least one of them was a sinkhole that opened during the tremendous rains that precipitated all the recent flooding.
When I had traveled along US 11 and 15 far enough and was about to get on I-81 North to Linglestown, I decided to ride a little farther to an antiques barn along 11 and 15 beyond Marysville. I like the ride because north of the Rockville Bridge the river and landscape become a little wilder and rugged-looking. Passing Marysville, I noticed a smallish arrow along the right side of the road, pointing left and proclaiming "Scenic View."
|A lovely old Colonial Revival.|
On the way back I stopped at Leonard's Oak World to see if there was a little table Susanne could use as a desk for her laptop. The ones that were low enough were also too narrow. Too bad. I smelled like oak the whole way home.
One big thrill was stopping at Sheetz' and using my new bonus card to get a $1.59 soda for 99 cents! Then when I got home, I had an email saying I was entitled to a bottle of Fuji water, free! Life is good.
I figured I couldn't pass up that scenic view, so I turned and headed up the hill. I could not find anything that looked like an overlook, so I just rode up and down a couple of streets and admired some older houses. Who knew Marysville was more than the world-famous Lady Finger bakery along the highway?
Say, maybe "Scenic View" was a cemetery or rest home!
