travel theme: signs

Thursday, August 16:  This week’s travel theme from Ailsa of Where’s my backpack? is SIGNS.  Ailsa writes about signs: they come in all shapes and sizes. If you would like to join in, create your own post with the title Travel theme: Signs and put a link to Ailsa’s page in your post so others can find it. And check back in next Friday for a new travel theme.

And at this little cafe in Ohiopyle, Pennsylvania, the only option available to my vegan sons is in the bottom left corner.

sausage, pork, beef and chicken: every meat known to man. luckily there are some fruit smoothie options!
