A Day In My Hometown!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

Hey all! I am linking up with Running on Happy and Fairytales and Fitness for Friday 5 2.0!

Yesterday, Paul and I headed up to my hometown of Millersburg, PA to spend the day!

First, we went to the Ned Smith Center. Paul hiked the trails while I went for a run!

Paul said the bugs were really bad, despite wearing bug spray.

There are many trail options at Ned Smith.

I ran the railroad bed into town, which was a little over a mile and a half. On my way into town, I saw a cat, a deer, and geese with two baby geese trailing behind. No snakes- whew!

Then I ran down to the swinging bridge and crossed the creek.

I ran across the riverfront and saw the historic Millersburg Ferry.

It was quite hot, so after our workouts, Paul and I went to the Millersburg Pool to cool off. I have so many great memories of the pool. I spent so much time there during the summer.

Paul and I played a game on the diving boards where he would do a trick, then I would have to do a trick. I quickly learned I couldn't do anything too fun on the diving boards because when I did a spring dive, my bikini bottoms came all the way off while I was underwater! Luckily, they didn't go past my feet and I pulled them back on! WOOPS!

Of course we brought our favorite card games.

After the pool, we went to visit my Grandma. We had a nice time chatting.

Then Paul and I met my parents for dinner. We went to Swing at the Lykens Valley Golf Course. We had so much fun talking and laughing with my mom and dad.

Before going home, my mom took us over to the Gallery on the Square, which is an art gallery in Millersburg. I got this beautiful bracelet made by one of the Millersburg Area Art Association's newest members, Marcia Klinger.

 (That's the back.)

It was such a fun day in my hometown doing all kinds of different activities!
When is the last time you visited your hometown?

Any funny swimming suit wardrobe malfunctions you want to share!?


  1. That park area looks so beautiful. Does that bridge really swing? LOL on the wardrobe malfunction at the pool. I had a similar *moment* in the ocean last summer ...

    1. It swings a LITTLE bit. So the original swinging bridge was very swingy but got washed away in a flood during the 1970s. This one was rebuilt in 1996. I guess they wanted the new one to be safer!

  2. LOL--that is so funny about your bottoms coming off. Ooops. Well, I live in my hometown so I am here all the time! Looks like such a fun day!

    1. Normally it is my top that comes up! I guess I should wear a one piece when I want to play diving board games!

  3. Isn't it great to have so many local trails available! I love that you and Paul play games at the pool!

  4. It looks like you made the most of your time visiting your hometown. You must have had such a fun time walking down memory lane during your visit.

    1. I sure did. I have great memories of Millersburg!

  5. I haven't been back to my hometown in over a year. Woomp :(

    Thanks for sharing yours. It's fun to see where you grew up... it's pretty out there (and I love the bracelet that you got!)
