Our second day of sight seeing in Pennsylvania took us to Gettysburg National Military Park. This is one of those things that, quite honestly, we only did because Raymond wanted to. I knew we should go, but I expected to drive out, see a field where there was a battle, and be done. I could not have been more wrong. Gettysburg is incredibly beautiful, and we spent a full day touring the museum (I waited outside with Pepper) and various battlefield locations in a self-guided auto tour. With a quick stop at a brewery for lunch, of course!
The weather was amazing – cool and breezy, with bright blue skies and big fluffy clouds. We couldn’t have asked for better. The kids got a Junior Ranger patch, which I have somehow lost the photo of, but I’ll post it as soon as I locate it! This blogging with limited internet access is harder than I thought it would be!
