Gallery: First Trip after Retirement Part Seven

The next morning we were up early had breakfast loaded up and we were P1060376 on the road again_edited-1off again. We had discussed going into Washington DC but for the second time in my life time decided against it ( I will be going to DC this spring 2013). Charlotte had read about a town called Winchester VA being a great town to retire in so we decided to drive up to it. As we were driving again she was just looking through the AAA book and she was reading about Berkley Plantation where Benjamin Harrison and also President William Harrison was born, this also was the home of the first Thanksgiving and where Taps was written and played on a bugle. There was no big highway to drive on until we would get to Williamsburg but since we decided to go to the plantation we continued on smaller roads, it was slower driving but a whole lot prettier.
