On the Road Again

I have never had to imagine a life without a car. It's a part of me, like my arm or leg. I learned to drive when I was a kid on my family's farm. I had to help out by driving the tractor as soon as I could reach the pedal. Before I had my official license in hand, I had already clocked a lot of miles on our farm's tractor and pick-up.
Last July, Paul and I visited my family in Pennsylvania, and then we headed by car onto one of the scenic backroads of the northern part of the state, Rte. 6. It's known for its great landscapes, like the PA Grand Canyon in Wellsboro, and for its diners along the way. We both enjoyed the Wellsboro Diner. They had delicious blackberry pie and great coffee.

One last painting for the road . . . this one offers my view of I-10 West on the way to Comfort, so naturally, I entitled it On the Road to Comfort. I love the sights going West into the Texas Hill Country. Comfort is one of those stops along the way that can be full of surprises. Wonderful shops, like the Comfort Crockery, and dining treasures too. One of my personal favorites is a place called the Front Street Tearoom. It's a cozy converted house with bright green paint on the outside and a trip to the past on the inside. You'll be greeted by friendly staff and a menu which features a wonderful variety of teas, along with soups and sandwiches that will leave your tastebuds happy. The decor features antique furniture, and of course, a collection of teapots for every occasion.
No matter where you're headed this Fall, I wish you safe travels and happy trails! Hope all your roads lead to good things . . .
