This is the second of two posts written about my birthday trip. After spending some time at Grand View Point I took a leisurely drive back home. As you can see from the pictures, I stopped at a few antique stores along the way. I also got the chance, finally, to stop at the Lincoln Highway Experience!!! When I walked through the door I was pleasantly greeted by Kelsey who is an intern at the museum. But when Olga came through the door and saw my Lincoln Highway t-shirt she came over and gave me a big hug!
I’m so glad that I got to visit with them. The video that they have playing in the dining room featuring Brian Butko is warm, friendly, and informative. The artifacts that they have on display are all very interesting – especially those from the Grand View Ship Hotel itself. And the Johnston house which the museum is housed in is truly a treasure. Since it was my birthday and since I am an artist of sorts, I was happy to support the artists of the Handmade Along the Highway program by buying myself the lovely copper ring that you see. Amazingly enough, the first ring that I picked up fit my finger perfectly and I’ve been wearing it ever since.
So, if you’re in the area, please take the time to stop by and visit the Lincoln Highway Experience. You’ll be glad that you did!
Stay tuned for my next post. I made it to the public opening of MassMu’s latest exhibits and all I have to say is, wow, have they been busy!
So until we meet again, here’s to the road and here’s to you…
