|Williamsburg, Virginia 9/21/13|
Both George and I took over 1500 photos EACH---so you'll be seeing more specifics from our trip in the next few months. Today, I just picked out one photo from most of the areas we visited... Many of you are on Facebook and followed us along the way --since both George and I posted a photo each morning and each evening.
Be sure to enlarge the photos for bigger pictures. The photo above is one of our favorite parts of our visits to Williamsburg, getting to hear and see the Fife and Drums. I love hearing them as they march down the street. I also got to do some Family History while here --but that will be another blog post!!

|Sweet little Fawn at Antietam, Maryland, 9/25/13|
Today though, life is good in that area ---so I'll feature this sweet little fawn who was paying no attention to me ---but enjoying some dinner. It was ironic, in the place where 23,000 soldiers were killed, wounded or missing in 1862, that on the day we were there, it was a beautiful and sunny and filled with life, evidenced by this little fawn.
|Jefferson Rock at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, 9/26/13|
The picture above was taken on the top of a hill above Harpers Ferry at a big rock, called Jefferson Rock. Thomas Jefferson stood on that rock in October of 1783. Harpers Ferry is where the Shenandoah River and the Potomac River converge. Jefferson was impressed with this area and rock formations ---just like George and I were.

Well---that's our trip --in a nutshell. We had a great time ---and I'm sure I'll share many many more photos with you in the upcoming months.
Hope you had a great September... I cannot believe that it is OCTOBER already. My mother's birthday was yesterday --and if she were still alive, she would have been 113 years old. My Dad's birthday is tomorrow ---and if he were still alive, he would be 124 years old now... Daddy died in 1969 and Mom died in 1991. I miss them both so much!
I tried to read your blog posts --but ran out of time most days! SO---if I missed something really important that you want me to see, please tell me to check those posts... Thanks!!!
Have a great Wednesday! Be sure to check out my Photo Blog today for another photo from this wonderful trip. Click HERE.
