Bucket list items checked off!

Our cabin is in a very wooded area. Everything looks just like the photos in that link! Last night we walked to the road and then down the road to an open field. The views are incredible. This morning we had breakfast at the cabin. We have food with us and our hosts stocked our fridge with a few things like milk, eggs, English muffins, yogurt, and grapes. It was easy to have a nice meal!

Today has been overcast and we've even had some rain but it was a great day - it was Ray's day. We began at Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center where we watched the Film and Cyclorama. The Cyclorama was incredible!

Then we did the car tour of the battlefields. It took about 4 hours and we would have spent longer in nice weather. We ate our lunch in the car as we drove around the area. I think that counts as a picnic! I learned a lot today - it was an amazing visit!

We both hope to come back again and stay longer. We didn't get to spend enough time on the Battlefields, and we didn't get into the museum nor did we get to Eisenhower's home. But we did get here and Ray can check it off of his Bucket List!

On our way 'home' we crossed the Appalachian Trail. This spot is about 1 mile from our cabin.

Both of us have always wanted to be on the trail. We didn't actually hike it today. 

However we did walk a little ways - we were on the Appalachian Trail!

That's a check for each of us on our Bucket Lists!

Tomorrow we head toward Illinois. We need to be in Champaign. IL by Sunday evening. I'm sure we'll find something interesting on the way.

The most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what's in between, and they took great pleasure in doing just that.”

  1. Yay for crossing things off the bucket list. Looks like you had a perfect time, given your time constraints. ;-) Wishing you safe travels on the last leg of your trip.

  2. That's definitely something we want to do, too - Gettysburg AND Philadelphia.
    See you soon.

  3. I'm sure that my hubby would love to visit Gettysburg! Glad you had a good time and learned lots of new things!
