Day 41 July 20
After having a lovely breakfast on our friend’s front porch, it was time to run a few errands. Mike and Bev were nice enough to drive us to the big shopping area, where we hit up the pet store (doggie pill pockets for giving Trixie her thyroid pills), the drug store (high-back sand chairs to take to the Newport Folk Festival), and the sunglass store (to replace my sunglasses which were so scratched up I couldn’t see out of them).
The rest of the day in Pittsburg was much more interesting. We drove to the top of Mt Washington to enjoy the beautiful view of the city. And yes, Pittsburg is a beautiful city, so don’t knock it until you’ve been there!
After Mt Washington, we drove into the city to see the Old Cork Factory (now upscale condos), and to “the strip” to grab a cup of coffee at one of Bev’s favorite cafes (it was closed…boo), and then back to Squirrel Hill for a dog walk through the fanciest of neighborhoods, and for a quiet dinner back on our friend’s front porch.
Another fun day completed!
