Rosewood Trio at St Peters Inn

Our intrepid Explorer
Today was a gorgeous Fall day, and the Rosewood Trio, including brother Dave on bass, were playing on the patio of the St Peters Inn in St Peters Village, near French Creek State Park. They have played a couple times at the bakery there, but we had not been able to make either of those events. With no major kids' events scheduled, we put this on the calendar as a nice way to spend the afternoon and see someplace new, as I had heard from a number of people that this was a nice place to take the family for a few hours. Now if we could just get the forecasted chance of showers to hold off...

As it turned out, Amp was very sick to her stomach over the weekend, so it ended up being me and the girls making the pilgrimage to see Uncle Dave. My first inclination was to skip it and stay home since we couldn't all go, but Amp wasn't dangerously ill (easy for me to say), and the kids needed to get out of the house on what turned out to be a beautiful day, so off we went.
A River Runs Through It...sort of

I'm very glad we did. There isn't a whole lot to St Peters Village, but it is a nice scenic spot, with a number of old buildings overlooking a boulder-strewn stream valley (which Grace loved playing around on). The weather was perfect, the music was great, and it was nice to hang out on the patio with brother Dave's Darling wife and a few other friends enjoying the day and having a few good snacks and beverages. I'm very sorry that Amp couldn't make it, which did put a bit of a damper on the day, but the girls and I had a good time and would have no hesitation going back if they play there again. Which I hope they do...

Fair to say, a good time was had by all.

  1. Yes, a good time was definitely had by all. :-)

    Hopefully this will disprove once and for all the rumor that I'm physically incapable of smiling. Though my darling wife says this isn't exactly a smile...just not my usual playing grimace. Sigh....
