"That's What Friends Are For" Part Two.
Our first stop was Campbell's Orchards which I have told you about a few times. The critters had all new cages and there seemed to be more of them, critters I mean. Newton the pig was living up to his name and "hogging" all the apples.
We headed back home for lunch. I wanted to quickly show Kim Proctor House which I wrote about a week or so ago. I knew the ticket office for the Proctor House Barn Theatre was open as there was a play being performed this last few weekends. We walked around outside so Kim could get some photos and then I suggested we head into the office (located in the house kitchen) to just ask if we could look around the kitchen. Well the lady said sure and I will turn on all the house lights so you can tour the whole house. I was flabbergasted! The house is only open for tours in July and August. The volunteer left us alone to wander around wherever we wanted to go.
I only stayed up there for a few minutes. Kim stayed up a bit longer and enjoyed the view. Coming back down was treacherous as the stairs were only about 5 inches wide. You really had to watch where you put your feet. Back on the second floor we found the master bedroom. Lovely and big and bright.
After our tour we quickly headed into Trenton for one last quick look at the thrift stores then headed home so Kim could pack. I believe Kim came with two bags but she left with four! We sat and chatted for an hour or so then packed up and took Kim to the train station. A wonderful two days which I hope we can repeat again.
If you are still reading this thank you, it was very long!
I hope you enjoyed all the photos. I had a wonderful time taking them.
Have a good week!
