When Kennywood broke our hearts back in July, closing at barely 7:30 pm, they had people standing by the entry gate to hand out rain checks, a bit of kindness that made bunny_hugger run off and cry out ``KENNYWOOD IS AWESOME!'', which it is.

Yes, we decided, and that's how we made an early September weekend (I'm hoping someday to get my blog back to reporting on stuff done the month I tell it) our Rain Check Trip.( Collapse )
But we left at about sunset, and drove back to Pittsburgh where we found our old friend the Red Roof Inn.
Trivia: 45 Huguenot families settled in an area now known as Frenchtown in East Greenwich, Rhode Island, in 1686, although they soon moved to land which would be disputed between Massachusetts and Rhode Island, and then left the area altogether.
