And there's no freeway noise... it's miles away from the Interstate. The park is right on a state highway, but that was very quiet after about 9 PM so there was no broken sleep. Of course you have to keep in mind that we both sleep like the dead, so your mileage may vary!
Side tripCelia read thru a booklet prepared by the Pennsylvania state department of saomething or other which I'd picked up somewhere in Indiana. She spotted a mention of Daffin's Chocolate Kingdom in Erie County. Well, if it has anything to do with chocolate, we're there!
Order two, not oneSo off we went to Sharon, PA, about 50+ miles south. We found our way to the Sharon town center, walked the dogs, and then the Admiral spotted the Sharon Hot Dog Shop across the street. Life is good.
Daffin's Chocolate KingdomFortified with a couple chile-cheese dogs, I was ready for whatever. Celia asked our waitress if she knew of any large candy stores in the area and she immediately told is about Daffin's just up the street a few blocks.
So off we went to a huge candy store which was in fact the place we had come to see. In the back of Daffin's enormous showroom was a display of huge chocolate figures plus a chocolate village all crafted from the elixir of life. Out in the sales area they had a display of various kinds of chocolate so large it puts See's (big in California) to shame. We of course wanted to help the local economy and bought way more than we should have (gotta have gifts for the kids, right?!), then headed back to the RV park 60 miles away.
Our stop in PA was too short and we both thought we'd like to come back. If you like driving low traffic, small country roads thru lush farm land as we do, you will have lots to explore here.
Next we're off to New York. Later...
