What I Learned Yesterday – Part Two

To continue my earlier post:

I won’t put up a post about one of the places we stopped to eat because I would not recommend it to anyone. I didn’t know each cup of coffee was $3.00! I had one when we got there. Then I asked for a refill and Rebel Guy asked for one after he finished his draft. The waitress came with a cup for him, and told me they were brewing a fresh pot and would be back with mine. Half an hour later, no coffee. They took my plate and I said to forget the coffee, we’d take the bill. I didn’t notice until later I was billed $9.00 for three cups.

Note to self: check your bills!

Rebel Guy was full up from the first visit to a brewery and the coffee.  🙂 I decided to wait it out and get something later. I do not drink beer, or anything alcoholic, often.

Note to self: Bring water!

You will not always be near a store. I don’t drink soda beverages either. The brewery we went to sold beer or soda.


Keep an eye on your gear. Do not set it down. At one point I noticed Rebel Guy looking at me and nodding to my things when we were approached by two young men. He told me we were close to losing something while one tried to occupy us and the other went over to my belongings.

Check your to-go bags when you order food!

Still thirsty from my earlier stop at an eatery, I ordered a water, Rebel Guy a Root Beer soda. We had driven away when I realized our drinks were not in the bag! Seriously! I couldn’t believe it. There was no way I was going to let it ruin a great day and decided to shrug it off. I guess I was not meant to be hydrated that day.


Almost everyone asked if we were were on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. It seems having a site is just not as popular. I broke down and joined Twitter today. I guess our posts will go up there, I don’t understand hashtags yet. Do we use them on WordPress? In a post or as a tag? Any tips would be appreciated.


We are excited about our next day trip and will be more prepared to hike around for hours. A great learning experience! A great way to celebrate our anniversary together. I am so happy that we found something we both enjoy. It brings excitement and gives us something to look forward to.  🙂





  1. Sound advice about keeping tabs on your gear – I had pulled into a derelict
    truck stop in the middle of nowhere late one night to get some coffee and a
    piece of pie, as I looked out the window I saw a man walk slowly by my pickup
    looking inside.
    A few minutes later he returned and grabbed my camera bag – I went out the door
    after him and gave chase for a good half mile or so before catching up to him.
    I was confident I would catch him but kept thinking he’d hurl the bag aside and
    damage my gear – after catching him I asked why didn’t he just drop it and go
    on? Said he didn’t think of it – a real genius.
    Haven’t made the same mistake since.

    1. Good thing you caught him! I would cry if someone stole my gear. I will not put it down again!
      Thank goodness you were able to chase him down! Impressive. I would never be able to chase someone down!


  2. Good photos! Hope you’re enjoying learning all about your new camera, and also that none of your gear got taken. … Hashtags… I use them as a tag on my blog posts. I think it helps people find it, maybe on their reader? I don’t use the reader myself, just email notices. I do post to FB and Twitter when I post a new blog post, and use the challenge hashtag for them. 🙂
