Elaine drove, so I was able to get some good pictures along the way. We headed through center city to get to the expressway.
We were lucky enough to see the Zoo Balloon floating over the zoo as we passed. Cool!
We know we are in Lancaster when we see the beautiful farm land.
The first place we went to was Kitchen Kettle. It was so crowded. We couldn't figure out why everywhere we went was crowded. It's a Tuesday so we figured it would be an off day. We went to the Christmas Shop and got our annual ornament. Every year on Elaine's birthday week we buy a new ornament for this year. She got a blue delft nutcracker and I got a shimmery star.
Then we went to the Jam and Relish Shop. We always go overboard there. I got pumpkin bread, a Farmer's Blend Coffee K-cup for Joe, a bag of tortilla chips, mango salsa (unbelievably good), pepper jelly and pumpkin butter.
On the way out Donna and I stopped and bought some peaches from a farmer there. They are so sweet and smell wonderful.
There was a guitarist there today. There is always someone performing. I stopped and listened to him for awhile.

Sorry about the end. I'm still not sure about using the movie button on my new camera.
It was getting late so we headed over to the Sight and Sound Theater.
We had tickets for the show "Moses". It was amazing! The special effects were wonderful! I can't say enough good about it. Tickets at Sight and Sound are expensive, but it was worth every penny we paid.
|We were in the balcony. They were the best seats I could get. We prefer to be down lower, but there are no bad seats in the place.
|Elaine and Donna
|And yours truly.
|There was a magnificent statute of Moses in the lobby.
|Here it is again from another angle.
We went to Bird-in-Hand Restaurant for dinner.
We waddled out of the place right before the closing at 8:00 p.m. Then it was the long drive home.

There was a lot less traffic and we made good time. When we passed the zoo we saw the balloon again. At first we thought it was a huge moon when it was behind the trees.
We passed Boathouse Row and the Art Museum on the way home. They are always beautiful.
Philadelphia is beautiful at night.
