Hocking Hills Day Trip – Part One
Wednesday was the most gorgeous fall day ever, 74 degrees and sunshine. We drove for three hours to get to our destination and I have a lot of the most beautiful pictures from there which I will post tomorrow. Today I will show you the two places we ate, a pencil sharpening museum and the injury my husband got while at our main destination.
Our first stop was at the Millstone BBQ. They opened at 11:00 am we got there about 11:10 am. By the time we left they were very busy. After tasting the food we understood why! They seated us promptly and the waitress was wonderful.
Their prices were reasonable for the amount of food they give you.
I had the BBQ pulled pork sandwich which came with fries and I ordered a side of coleslaw. While we waited for the meal to arrive they brought us four complimentary mini cornbread muffins that tasted amazing. We devoured them so fast I forgot to take a picture.
Here is their business card should you ever get in the area.
A few minutes from the restaurant was a Welcome Center. At the Welcome Center was a small building sitting outside.
Next to the building was this plaque.
When we went inside there were three walls with show cases filled with pencil sharpeners.
This plaque was on the wall.
We went inside the Welcome Center and then headed for our day trip.
While doing our day trip my husband had a trip of his own. Luckily he didn’t need medical attention and it looks worse than it really was.
After our day trip we were still full from lunch so we decided to stop at the Der Dutchman Amish Restaurant a few hours away. They also had a bakery and other items for sale in their store.
This was my husbands plate of food and it was delicious as it always is when we visit here. Included with the buffet was a salad bar along with two kinds of soup. Dessert was extra if you wanted it. You could also order off of the menu.
Outside they had these beautiful hanging plants. I had to take a picture because it appears that they water them from the gutter somehow. Every hanging plant had a small hose from the gutter to the hanging plant.
Check in tomorrow to see our main destination and one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.
