Delaware Water Gap, Penn., AT NOBO mile 1,289.6, Wednesday May 7, 2014 — If I had been a character on Sesame Street, I would have been the Pie Moocher.
I love pie – pot pie, apple pie, cherry pie, punkin pie – any kind of pie, even the number pi. You can fill my pie hole morning, noon and night.
Well, this threadbare burg has its very own pie bakery. Talk about a hiker vortex. You can walk in, but you can’t walk out.
No sooner did I saunter in than a piece of apple pie a la mode jumped right out and landed right on my table. It was so yummy.
Not to be outdone, the second course consisted of a savory shepherd’s pie. Scrumpilicious!
For desert I tried waddling over to the strudel table but fortunately I couldn’t make it all the way. The button on my waist band was about to pop.
Did I forget to mention the homemade giant size cookies or the cupcakes? Oh mercy!!!
They open at 8 o’clock. A special breakfast awaits, I can tell.
The rest of the week will be much warmer and rainy. My quick trip home and back paralleled the AT. Spring is about a hundred miles south of us at the moment, and should catch up momentarily.
Of course the cats were delighted to see me. 🙂
