Lackawanna County outings

 We have been doing all the "tourist" things lately just because the weather hasn't been good and there isn't much else to do. Thursday we went on a coal mine tour that you walk around underground for 45 min. learning what it was like back in the day when people worked in the coal mines. We did this a couple years ago when we visited so it was nothing new, but it kept us busy for an afternoon.

                                      Code signals you had to know when working in the mine.

                                                                        Inside the coal mine.

                                                     It is 53 degrees year round underground.

Last night we went to the horse track and casino with Ryan's grandfather and his girlfriend. We have gone a handful of times since living here. It's a lot of fun especially when you are winning. I only won $5 on a $2 bet on the horses so I just played another round.

                      You can sit at a table looking out at the horse track. We watched all 14 races.

Some of the loosing tickets.

Love the bright lights.

Today a realtor came over measured, asked questions and took pictures of the place. It's officially for rent and we now have to deal with this lock box on our door for the next couple weeks but it will be well worth it.
