Vacation - Day 4 - July 10th

Road trip! Well - not a long trip. We headed off to the town of Jim Thorpe. It's only about 30 minutes south of the resort. Well - we would have except for the road work. For some reason the state was repairing both directions of the only road going through Jim Thorpe at the same time. This was causing long backups in both directions. I missed the turn for the parking log the first time through and we had to go wait in the road work a second time. The wife was not happy with me...

At the same time the state was doing their work another contractor was ripping up the main street in Jim Thorpe. Nothing but noise. We wandered around for a bit. Found some interesting stores and lots of friendly people. I love small town America! The town has a civil war memorial that seemed out of place. Interesting but out of place.

There was also a clock tower. It played several songs - mostly religous themed.

Somehow I don't think we'll hear that in NYC next week.
