Meggins Comes to Bethlehem!

Meggins came all the way from Australia to vacation with us in charming Bethlehem. After her jetlag cleared, we played all week. We toured a ton of places, including the Rose Gardens where she insisted on taking a photo of a lizard she spotted on the sign. We took the town by storm, ate in some terrific places, including the Sayre Mansion where she feasted on strawberry mile-high pie. She got on famously with the Yorkies and slept on a cozy bed on the bookshelf (near the travel section, of course).Later in the week, we visited nearby towns, watched movies--she loved UP!, rode the rollercoaster art Dorney Park ...and raised our glasses in a toast to vacations. She drank her favorite Peach Belini over minced ice. We also went to the local winery and toured the vineyards, then had a winetasting. Yum!
She shopped for prezzies to take back to Australia--and especially loved the Monogram Store where she bought a handpainted brooch. She left today for her next vacation stop at Michelle's. So she is bound for a great time in Magicville.
