It was a very, very COLD November day. But a very nice day for a road trip.

My very nice nephew, Andrew, invited me to go on a day trip with him (in his nice new car), his brother, Davey and mom, my sister, Janet of Writing in the Blackberry Patch to Cabela's in Wheeling, WV.

I love road trips, especially on unfamiliar routes, leading to new places. We took the nice scenic route along the Ohio River instead of traveling the interstate.

It was nice to see places I'd never seen before. We drove through a lot of nice little towns.

Janet noticed a sign along the road in the town of Paden City for Marble King gift shop. So, we turned back to to check it out. It was such a nice little gift shop with oodles and oodles of marbles and other gift items.

Back on the road, we finally made it to our destination, after stopping at Bob Evans for a very nice lunch.

Cabela's is a very nice plac
e to visit, even if you are not in the market for any hunting, fishing, or outdoors merchandise. It is a tourist attraction with lots and lots of very nice wildlife displays and a walk in fish aquarium. Also, there is a nice little general store and restaurant inside. And, a tourist spot would not be a tourist spot without souvenirs. I purchased a couple of tee shirts. One of my favorite pieces of clothing is the tee shirt. I wear tee shirts every day.

After a nice tour of Cabela's, we head
ed for the car to start our trip back home. Did I mention it was a cold day? Now it was even colder. We walked at a very fast pace back to the comfort of Andrew's nice car. (Wish I'd gotten a pic of Andrew and his car.)

Along the way back, we drove through a MacDonald's, believe it or not, for an ice cream cone. Of course I had to have a coffee also.

On the road again, it was beginning to get dusky and there was s
uch a nice colorful sunset, which I was unsuccessful in getting a photo of.

Posted below are just some of the photos that I did get while on my very nice day trip.

Thank you, Andrew.

"Did you hear something?"

"Oh, those fleas!"

"Back off. He's mine."

"Say uncle."


"Gobble, gobble, gobble."

"Wait up."

"What are you starring at?"

"My tee shirt!"

Now, wasn't that nice?

Without going back, can you guess how many times the word "nice" appears in this post?

Very nice Shirley, I feel like I was there. Uh-Oh, I said nice, didn't I?
Glad you had a good time, so did I. I like your pictures.

Going on an outing with family is always "nice"! tee hee
I just had to say it.
Those are some great shots you got.
I want one of those t-shirts!

That was great...love the captions with the pictures.
My man loves Cabela's and now each time I see one I groan. :)
But like the nice dutiful wife I go along and let him enjoy himself. Sometimes I even find something in the shoe department.
Glad you enjoyed your trip. I will have to say that they are all a little different in decorations...but how often can you look at hunting supplies? ;)
"Nice" post.

Alan said...

Wow!! You got nice t-shirt from Cabelas...
