Started our journey today back to Massachusetts, after a great visit to Shelly’s parents in West Chester, but to round off the trip we made a journey to Yellow Springs,   in Greene County, Ohio, to meet up with extended family for breakfast at Young’s Dairy.

Water towers from the highway…like a scene from the 1953 film ‘War of the Worlds’…the adaptation of HG Wells book of the same name…

2014-08-16 17.39.35 v2 A   We saw around 10 White tailed Deer on the way…just grazing in the green zones around the highway…wonderful !   Arrived at Victor, just outside Rochester, New York State at around 19.30 and checked into our rooms at the Holiday Inn Express before going out to The Olive Garden for dinner. We like the restaurant as it is mentioned a lot in the ‘Big Bang Theory’. Bath & bed !
