I’m beginning to feel like I have my very own personal rain cloud hanging over my head, dumping on me every time I turn around. It rained three out of the seven days we were in the Washington D.C. area, two of those days so hard that we couldn’t go out and sightsee. Now we’re […]

A Travel Day

We must have been worn out by a week of sightseeing, because yesterday we slept in much later than we expected to. But since we had not planned to take the Metro back into Washington, it really didn’t matter. We puttered around the motorhome for a while, checking e-mails, reading some of our favorite RV […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, when we were in town on Wednesday, we spent some time at the National Museum of American History, which is one of the dozen or so museums that make up the Smithsonian in Washington. This is our favorite of them all. We saw all kinds of interesting exhibits and […]

Yesterday we were up and out early, riding the Metro train back into Washington D.C. for more sightseeing. We had a great time, but playing tourist is darned hard work! After two days in a row, we are worn out! We started the day by visiting the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where the nation’s […]

Yesterday, we toured two great museums in Washington D.C., the Newseum and the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Both were excellent, and I highly recommend both to anybody who has not visited them yet. The bus picked us up at Cherry Hill Park and took us to the Metro station, where we rode the Green Line train […]

Our plans to play tourist in Washington, D.C. were rained out yesterday. It started raining just after midnight and came down all day long. Not just a drizzle, but a hard, pounding rain that was not fit for man nor beast. So we spent the day in the motorhome at Cherry Hill Park, watching TV, […]

Yesterday was another short driving day for us, just 77 miles! I could get used to this laid back lifestyle! We left Round Top Campground in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania just before 10 a.m. , got on U.S. Highway 15 and followed it south to Frederick, Maryland. U.S. 15 is a nice, divided four lane highway that […]

There is so much to see here in Gettysburg that it would take weeks to cover it all. We don’t have weeks, so yesterday we crammed as much time in playing tourist as we could. We toured the battlefield during our previous visit a few years ago, so yesterday we spent several hours at the […]
