On the previously mentioned weekend "away", Greg and I spent the first night in Holmes County, and enjoyed the snow covered hillsides and Amish food and shopping (especially the food, of course!).  We couldn't decide what to do on the second night and third day (Ohio only has so much to offer on a freezing cold winter day!).  We debated between Disney's Toy Story on Ice in Cleveland, or the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad tour out of Akron.  We're old.  We chose the train.
It ended up being an interesting excursion, and we hope to take the kids back when they do the Polar Express.  Anyway, a few of you were interested in the train thing, and I did take a few pics.  The lunch was awesome...huge deli sandwiches topped with Amish cheeses, Grandma Shearers potato chips (local fav), and Coke...Greg added choc covered pretzels.  Very filling lunch!  We opted to stay on the train for the full 3 hours, instead of getting off at the Peninsula for shopping and eats.  It was cold.
We saw some deer, lots of people cross country skiing, passed a ski resort, and followed the river.  Didn't take many pics, but here are a few:

Beautiful winter ride!


Lots of high bridges

Love the scenery through the National Forest

The end.  :)

We also stayed at a "new to us" hotel in the Akron/Canton area.  It was straight out of IKEA, and for my house I would have hated the decor, but for an overnight the mod simplicity was refreshing!
No bathtub, just a huge shower (pic doesn't do justice-huge)
with a partial door, not a sliding door. 
That was a little different,
but with the length of the shower water did not escape the open part.

So, ifyou ever stay at a Cambria Inn & Suites,
you'll know what to expect!  :)

p.s.  I didn't realize that my blog was not allowing anonymous comments.  Fixed it, just ask that you put your name at the end so I know who is visiting!  :)

  1. Love the bathroom and this little couch...
    However, I would HATE cleaning that shower :)


Thanks for joining the conversation!
