The Great, Wet, Ice Cream Run 2011

Happy to join The Great Ice Cream Run even if for only one day, and see MINI friends Robyn, Ian, Eric, Jak … although the weather was 100% wet! The run had three ice cream stops today, all in Massachusetts, and I met them at the first and joined the drive for the rest of the day, heading home after the final stop at Kimballs.

Some day I might tire of the ease with which I upload pictures to Animoto, “star” a few important pictures, find and upload a “beat-laden” track of about the right length, and click “render” … but not today!

So, enjoy a trip up the Blue Ridge Parkway, topped with Ice-Cream. Yummy 🙂

The Great Ice Cream Run (Day 3)

[catch up post!]

Today, Wednesday June 24, The Great Ice Cream Run took us up to Haverhill, MA to England’s Micro-Creamery – sadly today was the WORST weather day so far, with rain and wet roads, and also the WORST traffic, with a 3/4-hour delay on US-495 due to a couple of trucks that decided to dance a little too close together 😦
But, we did eventually get to England’s, where we were honored with coned-off parking on the high street, and interviews / photographs from the local Eagle Tribune newspaper (check them tomorrow for a MINI Ice-Cream story!)



After that, I had to go and earn my keep at work, while the rest of The Great Ice Cream Run group headed North to Maine … but I’ll meet up with some of my new friends once more at MINIsOnTop this weekend 🙂

The Great Ice Cream Run (Day 2)

Tuesday June 23, The Great Ice Cream Run took us from Pennsylvania to Sturbridge, MA – via Deep Fried Ice-Cream at Riverside Creamery in Port Jervis, NY … unfortunately, I didn’t get many pictures (frustration with being un-able to post them!)


In the evening, we swamped Enrico’s and had great pizza, and finished the day with bargain “baby” sized Ice-Cream at Howard’s.

The Great Ice Cream Run (Day 1)

[catch up post!]

Monday June 22, The Great Ice Cream Run took us along the length of the Skyline Drive, to a great Ice-Cream stop at lunch, and on to Frackville, PA, for Ice-Cream on top of a “mountain”🙂

We did see a Bear – actually two Bears – on Skyline Drive, but they vanished quickly … so we photographed this slower moving “Bear”; on the other hand, these are real Deer!
