Road Trip Part 3: Heading Home
We didn't want our fun to end too quickly, so we stopped at a movie theater on the way and took in a movie, "Oz The Great and Powerful."
Although we did not see this movie in its available 3-D version, it was still a fun fantasy/adventure film, filled with loads of stunning visual effects. If you are planning on seeing it, don't wait to rent it. My recommendation is to see the 3-D version on the big screen in order to fully enjoy the special effects.
I was amused by the casting, and at first I even found myself unsure of exactly who was the evil witch.
Be careful if you have young children, though. This film might be a bit too intense and scary at parts for them. For us, though, it was a relaxing two hours escaping from this gray and never-ending winter of central Pennsylvania.
We made one last stop before returning home, at the Bamboo Palace in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania for a mid-afternoon Chinese food linner. We were too late to call it lunch, too early for dinner, but too hungry to wait any longer. The Bamboo Palace is a tiny little hole in the wall type of place, but makes good Chinese food, primarily for carry-out.
To end this blog post, I thought I'd share with you what I found in the fortune cookie that came with the meal.
Look closely in this next photo, and read the fortune.
Pretty darn appropriate for us at this time of the year, don't you think?
Just an interesting and thoughtful way to end a pleasant road trip, I guess.
