Foliage in the Poconos

Jonathan's parents came into town for some fun. We took a late lunch on Friday and hopped over to Richboro and had FreshWorks. Everyone enjoyed their cheesesteaks, and we had some of their tasty fries again as well. We toured a lot of the area, had homemade chili for dinner, and called it a night around 9pm.

Jonathan's uncle Dennis drove up from Baltimore Saturday morning, and we all took off for a scenic drive in search of some gorgeous foliage. It was in the upper thirties/lower forties and raining for most of the day, but we managed to find some good areas.
We went to Bushkill Falls, known as the Niagara of Pennsylvania. There were a bunch of different trails, and they were kinda hard to follow since the map didn't quite match the actual terrain. It was beautiful, tho.
We made a stop at the Delaware Water Gap. We drove up the Pennsylvania side and down the New Jersey side, so we had a lot of nice views.
We had Cafe Graziella in Hillsborough, NJ for dinner. I had the Capellini Sinatra. Jonathan had the canneloni. His dad had the Savoya. His mom and Dennis each ordered a noodles and bolognese dish which I can no longer recall the name of. I loved mine, even the leftovers were delicious! It was an angel hair pasta with clams, scallops (the tiny ones like we catch every year), and shrimp. The Savoya was chicken with mushrooms, onion, spinach, and roasted peppers - looked delicious!
