This past week M, my brother and his family and my Aunt Martha went on vacation to Lexington VA, Monticello, Carlisle PA, Hershey PA, Lancaster PA, Philadelphia, Stasburg PA, Washington DC and to Jamestown. It was an… interesting… trip but Aunt Martha had a good time. So here’s her trip in photos.
Here she is climbing back into the van after a rest stop on the way to Lexington.
She enjoyed a meal at the Mitchie Tavern at Monticello.
She visited Chocolate World in Hershey PA.
Where she shopped for cookies…
and even a shirt 🙂
She ate breakfast at Faye’s Country Kitchen in Carlisle… she loved it!!
She visited Independence Hall in Philadelphia.
As well as the Liberty Bell.
She admired this 200 year old eagle (it was somebody’s pet eagle… it was a real bird… taxidermy has been around a looong time).
She begrudgingly posed with The Signer.
But made friends with the Philly Phanatic (he recommended a cheese steak…)
And she headed back to Lancaster and had a great meal at an Amish restaurant that nobody can remember the name of and then went shopping.
She went for a train ride in Strasburg.
And then they were off to Washington DC…
Where she visited the Kennedys at Arlington
And watched the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
Then she went to the Air and Space Museum and contemplated flight…
as a means of escape (she wasn’t as thrilled with the Air and Space Museum).
But then she was off to see the other sights…
The Washington Monument…
The view of the Mall…
The WWII memorial…
And then she visited “the Castle”
She enjoyed looking at the quilts.
And buffaloed the buffalo (ok that’s only funny to me…)
But then she was back out on the Mall.
Contemplating what is going on at the Capitol.
And then they went to Jamestown, where she sat in the shade and avoided the camera for the most part.
But she was snapped in the Indian Camp thing.
And she rode the Jamestown Ferry… but didn’t like it much.
And then she came home. When asked about her trip she said “it was alright… I guess” which is about all we could’ve hoped for.
