Random Thoughts on Friday

I am JUST settling down from a trip we took through West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania!  Whew!  We covered a lot of ground, and saw a lot of things!  This was my first time ever in Delaware.  That state is really a bit out of the way, and you really have to want to go there to be there.  To be honest, we just spent the night in Dover Delaware, and then moved on.  We did stay at a very nice Home 2 Suites in Dover, and we talked to a very nice lady there named Diane.
We had several goals on this trip, besides seeing Delaware for the first time. 

We wanted to spend some quality time in Gettysburg.  We were there several years ago, but we were there for only a few hours.

We wanted to cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, and go through the Delmarva area!  That was cool.

We also wanted to see some of the Presidents homes scattered through Pennsylvania and Virginia.  We got to tour 5!  More on that later.  We did make a last minute change on our trip- we were going to see Mt. Vernon, but we realized that we would have to deal with DC traffic.  It seemed like this might be a home to skip on this trip.  We ended up seeing ANOTHER Presidential home- the Woodrow Wilson House in the very attractive town of Staunton Virginia!  This was a good move, as we were able to do a couple of other fun things here (like seeing a replica of the Shakespeare Blackfriar's Theatre!).
