Sunday 13th April 2008

We left our hotel after breakfast and started our journey towards New York City. We planned on staying at Scranton in Pennsylvania for the night. This would leave us about 2 hours drive tomorrow to get to Frank's aunt and uncle, just north of NYC.

We stopped at a little town called Binghamton and looked around the Roberson Museum. This had a wide range of displays - from planes and a model railway to paintings of birds and local scenes. The museum also included a planitarium where we heard about other planets and the stars that we can see throughout the night in April. The museum was attached to the Roberson Mansion House which you were also able to walk through - some of the rooms were displaying furniture as would have been in the house originally and some were museum exhibits of more paintings.

We then drove the rest of the way to our hotel, crossing into Pennsylvania on the journey. Here is a photo of Frank NOT smiling (just to be silly!)

Tomorrow we will cross back into New York and then go and visit his uncle.

I'm trying to think who Frank reminds me of... (Bill Oddie?)
