Wynken, Blynken and Nod

The rain let up again (this was Thursday) and we struggled mightily to get out of the house as usual, and felt fine after. Joyce found an ad for a rock shop 17 miles on the other side of Wellsboro, so we drove out there, and saw some of the best color of the whole trip.



And as long as it wasn't raining, we were able to go on and see the rest of the town. We started in the small park we had seen on our first visit, which made the dogs very happy.
In the parks is this really adorable fountain of Wynken, Blynken and Nod, the old nursery rhyme. And below that is the link that explains how the statue came to be in Denver and Wellsboro at the same time.

Oh, sure. NOW it lets me make a link. We also went through the kitschy old shopping district, which is that same street with the lamps down the middle, but we aren't such great shoppers, and we liked the park better, so we returned there until it was time to go home. Of all the places we saw on this trip, Wellsboro had the most charm, and the most to do no matter your interests. The people there take a lot of pride in maintaining their old buildings and repurposing them for things like the new performing arts center. It's prettty remote, but worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood..
