This is the first of several postings on an AWESOME trip East, last week.
First, I will give an over view and then, in future entrees, break down some of the days and spots in some detail.
Our son, Charles, had his 50th birthday Sept. 28 and he planed a trip for he and his wife to include a celebration at several spots. We accepted his invitation to join them for part of the adventure.
We left home, driving, Sunday Sept. 23 and after a day in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, with a stop at Tamerac, a craft center, outside Beckley we ended at "The Greenbrier" for dinner and the night. The next day it was on to Richmond, VA, with a stop at Charlottesville for lunch with Joanne and her family. They were college visiting.
We were guests,in Richmond, of Tim Kaine, the Governor, and his wife for dinner and the night. The next day it was on to several vineyards and the Skyline drive before we arrived in Washington, VA for the night, with dinner at "The Inn at Little Washington", some experience.
The next day we drove to Washington D.C. for lunch with Marilyn's nephew, and then on to Baltimore to our room on the tenth floor of the Regency Hyatt, overlooking the "inner harbor".
That night was dinner with Charles boss in their penthouse on a point between the inner and outer harbor.
The next day we struck out on our own for Gettysbugh and a 3 to 4 hour tour of the battlefield, 25 square miles, before the evening in Chambersburg, PA. Friday was the drive to Cincinnati and entry back into "the real world". More latter.
