We picked up our car in Boston, and have resumed our road-trip . We decided to drive cross-country back to California, stopping to see friends and family along the way before heading back to Mexico in early Fall. We are stopping in some cities we haven't been to before, and doing a little sight-seeing along the way, as well as, scout out potential new residence locations.

We drove through Albany and Buffalo, NY... and stopped to see Niagara Falls.

Then we drove to Jamestown, NY, where Lucille Ball was born, and get this, on August 6, 1911. Here we are on August 6, 2015! What are the chances? It sounded fun to visit the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and Center for Comedy dedicated to the lives and careers of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

The studio portion has recreated sets of the NY apartment kitchen and living room, and the living room suite in Hollywood, from the I Love Lucy show. There are clothes and various items on display.

Note the belt warn by Lucy in the "Martian episode," which was previously warn by Buster Crabbe in the Flash Gordon series!
Lucy and Desi were both talented , smart, beautiful/handsome people, and I will never tire of watching "I Love Lucy."

We also managed to catch the last episode of the Daily Show, and see the gratitude and send-off for the brilliant Jon Stewart. #jonvoyage

Friday we made our way to Pittsburgh. It was a beautiful drive through the Allegheny National Forrest.

We stopped at a park in New Bethlehem for a lunch break where there happened to be a Farmer's Market stand and baked goods sale. Of course I had to check it out since I love produce and baked goodies! I bought the peanut blossom cookies from an Amish girl. But the peaches were a perfect blend of flavor, juiciness, and sweetness!
