We went on a small road trip yesterday. It was a lovely warm day and just decided it had been awhile since we'd done that. So we drove up to Waynesville and went to Der Dutchman restaurant for lunch. Very good and filling. Then we drove up to Springboro to and got to fondle some yarn. I forgot to take some pictures there but they had some fabulous yarns. Got a skein of lace weight Misti Alpaca for a shawl for sis.
This is the candy store we always stop at when in Lebanon, Ohio. Sis really likes their handmade honeycomb chocolates so we stop and get a small bag of treats. The car always smells so good afterwards.
Makes you hungry, doesn't it?

Here is a shot of some of the candy that sis got at the store. It smells sooo good in there. And everykind of handmade chocolate you can think of to eat. This is a pecan white chocolate bark. And the other's are caramel bars. MMMMMmmmm.

Not a great shot of the horses in the field but we were going by at about 40 miles an hour. You can at least see the blobs that are the horses!

This is the front of Der Dutchman, where we ate lunch. Very good salad bar and fabulous hot bread! And the best peanut butter spread you have ever tasted!!

I don't know why I didn't get a shot of the buffet. Duh moment I suppose. We were looking out over the little stream and watching the ducks and geese. It's a nice spot to enjoy a delicious lunch.

This is sis's lunch. Lovely,no? Lots of meat go carnivore!!
Well, I just finished the Razor shell scarf...woot for me!! Happy dancing all around. Now I'm off to block it and work on my new sweater. I am knitting from Elsebeth Lavold's "Viking Patterns for Knitters" and the pattern is called Ragna. Very cool and cable-y and I'm knitting it with a burgandy tweed yarn which I think will show off the cables admirably. Once I finally get going on the pattern I'm sure it will knit up pretty fast. We shall see.

Cool to see these places. We're looking at the Waynesville area. How far is it from Miamisburg?? When we were there in November, Wooly Bully was closed - we were there to early in the morning.

I just had to find the Der Dutchman website and look up the menu after reading your blog. It makes me very nostalgic for "The Olde Dutch Restaurant", a place that my husband and I visit whenever we go to Hocking Hills. I absolutely must visit Der Dutchman now. There just aren't many places where you can get that strangely-appealing dish of stewed tomatoes. Oh, and the pies...!
