Saturday Life [10.10.15]: Camping in Pennsylvania

Oct 10, 2015 | STUDIO LIFE | 0 comments

Hi All,

This week there won’t be anymore shop updates, or supply runs, or corset announcements. This week I did one main thing- I went camping in Pennsylvania with mom & dad 🙂 🙂

So now I’m going to give you some fall-envy – because it was quite lovely 🙂

The fall colours were just a little pre-peak as we drove down to Pennsylvania, but there were some gorgeous pockets where you could see bright reds, oranges and yellows!

The first park that we camped at was Lackawanna State park, and it was beautiful- and home of some mighty big acorns!

I was also very proud to say that my pyromania tendencies as a child totally paid off, and I was able to start this fire with damp paper, and damp wood!


After one chilly night of tent camping, we moved on to Harrisburg Pennsylvania, a city that I loved and would totally want to explore a little more!

First we went to the National Civil War Museum, which was amazing!

They had so many interesting old artifacts and so much info- I can honestly say that the Canadian education system didn’t really cover the American Civil War in much detail- so it’s nice to know a little more now 🙂

And also mention-worthy was the amazing restaurant we went to called the Millworks.
It was such a cool spot- amazing food (we had the fried green tomatoes appetizer and wow was it good) But the coolest part is that it’s a cooperative for Artists, so the whole place was a gallery with little studios for the artists, and before or after dinner, or with a drink in hand, you could wander around and see all the amazing artwork and chat with the artists! It was AMAZING!


It was such a phenomenal time, and it’s really making me excited for my own studio 🙂

After Harrisburg it was off to one last night of camping before turning home, this time we stayed at Locust Lake State Park.




We got to go for a hike up the mountain at this park- and I did it in my new Millworks T-shirt!
The colours were beautiful, thankfully it was a little warmer and drier, and we were all sad to be leaving the next morning.
And that takes me to today- I’ve had one day for unpacking, phone calls, emails, planning, a little sewing. And then I’ll be on to my next week that is very full of new adventures!
How was your week? How is your fall shaping up?
Do you like camping? Any good state parks or camping trips? Did you go on a trip this fall?
I love hearing from you 🙂
