This was the 8th annual Celtic Festival held at Shawnee. I went to the Celtic Festival during one of their very FIRST festivals. My how things have changed. There are a lot more vendors, more food, more crowds, and better entertainment. They had petting farms (totally went there), leprechauns on stilts (boasting the claim “tallest leprechaun in the world”), bagpipes, sheep herding, demonstrations, and so much more.
Somehow we managed to miss spring this year (except for the pollen, but believe me it is alive and well out there). I don’t know about you, but the past few years have been ridiculously hot when it should be nice spring temperatures. Our trust thermometer Accuweather App is reading 90* here in the Lehigh Valley. Between the pollen and the heat, I’m dying. They don’t make clothes light enough for these temperatures. While manyyyyy of you are so happy that winter is long gone (fingers crossed), I on the other hand would LOVE a blast of cold air to come to cool this place down a good 10-20*. With that being said I’m gonna blog about something on the cooler side for today.
Last year we went on a little road trip to the Poconos to see “Crystal Cabin Fever.” In the middle of nowhere. Speaking of the middle of nowhere, let’s address the road situation. What would have been a relatively short drive started to multiply because of the terrible road conditions. Seriously, step it up PennDot!
And que the mountain road carsickness.
