I have been most neglectful of my blog, yet again, but I have good reason, a road trip across the United States. We went from Northern Arizona to Western Virginia and so many other places, but Virginia was the main event… A Family Gathering.
My husband’s large-ish family planned a wonderful Lake Side week in Huddleston Virginia, so we had to hoof it! `Remeber now, we’ve just gotten back from a month in Hawaii … In all, there were 25 folks planned for this get-together, phew!
Our first stop was Tucumcari New Mexico. We’d stopped for an overnight stay once before and checked into the same hotel. I won’t bother to tell you which one `cuz it was horrible and we’ll never go there again, for sure!
Next up was a two night lay-over in Fort Smith Arkansas, wow, that was a long drive, EIGHT HOURS to be precise.
We spent the better part of our second day at the Fort Smith National Historic Site, fascinating by the way-you should go, and then started to look for lunch. I chatted up the Park Ranger Pat, and she suggested Bricktown Brewery.
We started out our meal sharing an order of Bavarian Pretzel Sticks, served with a White Queso for dipping and then my husband and I each ordered the Bricktown Burger, again, yum! This ¼ pound patty is served on a Potato Bun along with your usual suspects, oh and Sweet Potato Fries dipped in the leftover White Queso.
I also enjoyed a draught Beer, although I’d be hard pressed to tell you which one, but it was perfect with my meal.
Stay tuned for more of our month long adventure…
