8/25/14 Monday in Lebanon,PA (Hershey-TT)
This morning, after my usual routine, I did light housecleaning, scrubbed the shower and used Oxi Clean to get stains out of our Corian sink. Then I realized the dinner we had planned needed to be prepared and started cooking in our slow cooker. In the afternoon John stayed inside to watch his old TV shows as I went outside to absorb the sights, sounds, smells of nature. Ah. After reading awhile I had a very strong urge to take a nap, so I did. Funny how I want/need naps and John doesn’t but that’s how we’re built. Up in time to get supper ready.
For our evening entertainment, we enjoyed a campfire built by Betty/Dale. I prepared for the mosquitoes with spray and long pants. I think they only got one bite. We had such a good time-it will be hard to leave tomorrow.
From my photo archives: Gettysburg
These are just a few of the monuments erected there. They help you understand the whole battle as you tour the battlefield (using a CD in your car). Our favorite part was the Cyclorama; a huge mural painted on the wall of a circular room. The lower parts included actual (3D) artifacts. We tourists would stand on a mounted area in the center as they relived the battles there, using small lights on the “map/mural” to guide you in what was happening.
