Larry & Lee Ann's Journey travel blog

Meet our new friends Bob & Tanna...

And welcome to Ohio...

A shot of Toledo shot from the bridge over the Ohio River...

We couldn't figure out if this was for decoration or to ward...

As we sped by we commented on the different varieties of trees...

This is one of the service plaza's on the turnpike that I...

The view is quite pretty for as far as we can see...

A tiny bit of color happening, Larry says it takes some kind...

This is home for the next couple of days...

We enjoyed a wonderful supper with REAL mashed potatoes!

These red maples are in Ella's front yard...


We are now in East Liverpool, Ohio. We brought the 80 Turnpike across from Toledo East. Our toll was $11.50 & we made really good time as we are now on the Pennsylvania border also! The road is not in the best shape for charging a toll I must say! But this area is beautiful. Not much color change here yet, but many varieties of beautiful trees.

Our "stuff" got bounced around quite a bit. But like I said, we made great time! Friends Dick & Lou were so surprised we were here! Lou's mom, Ella, was kind enough to allow us to camp out here for the next 2 nights. Thank you so much. And, she invited us in for a wonderful supper as well! Afterwards we all set out on the front porch visiting until dark & then we went in for a quick game of hand & foot. You already know who won right? It was after midnight as we made our way the 25 feet to our front door, tired but happy to be in another beautiful state. Looking forward to exploring this area tomorrow.

Oh, before I go, I am finding it so interesting to see each areas unique "things". As I mentioned before the rest areas in Michigan were the most beautiful we have ever seen. A true "little park". On the Ohio turnpike, they have Service Plazas. Large rotunda like buildings that house fast food outlets like Burger King, Popeye's, Pizza Hut express, Starbucks etc. And there is fuel, a large parking area for trucks, autos & RV's. Neat, wonder what else Ohio has in store for us?
