Gallery: First Trip after Retirement Part Nine

The next morning we as we were eating our breakfast we were talking what did we want to do today. We were looking at the map of where we were at and of what states we were around, when Charlotte noticed if we go north just a little we can cross into another state and then go west and we would be in West Virginia. We decided it would be kind of neat to eat in three different states so we had breakfast in Virginia drive in to Maryland eat lunch and then to West Virginia for dinner. We loaded up and headed out towards Frederick MD, it was a beautiful drive and as we were driving Charlotte was looking in the AAA book of things to see and do in the area of where we were heading and she noticed a National Park called Harpers Ferry WV so we decided to stop and have a look-see. It was a wonderful experience and they were having a reenactment so there were Union Soldiers walking around, Charlotte said it kind of reminded of her of Williams Berg. I found a bench to set on and was watching people walk by, Charlotte had walked on ahead so after a bit I started walking and looking in some of the buildings when one of the soldiers came up to me he had noticed my hat that said I was a Vietnam Veteran and he said he too was in Vietnam and so we visited for a bit. The history of this place was so interesting; the town had been destroyed by floods, was in the civil war, and it is where John Brown was hanged.
