The Great 40th Anniversary Roadtrip, Day II

Gettysburg6MeanToday’s adventure leading up to our anniversary took us to Gettysburg. I lived in Pennsylvania until I was 20 and never made it there. Marshall always wanted to go, so it was a date!

We had not made advance reservations and when we tried to book tours online last night, it wasn’t looking good. Depending on the tour company, most wanted bookings at least  24 to 48 hours advance. That was a problem: we only had the one day.

So at 8:00 a.m., we were waiting in front of the Gettysburg Tours, Museum on the advice someone at the hotel. She suggested we see the 20 minute movie and check out the museum before the tour for background. Her advice was wonderful! It really prepared us for the tour.

Our guide was wonderful, fun and very knowledgeable. By the end of the tour, we knew so Gettysburg1much about the battle that we could probably give our own tour.

Tomorrow, Fallingwater is on the agenda, then on to Belle Vernon! Meanwhile, here are some memories of Gettysburg.
