My apologies for not blogging sooner. We made it to the DC area. The road trip was an adventure and we stopped in Gettysburg, which was amazing and humbling. So many people lost their lives there. We were told just about everywhere you step there once was an injured, dying, or deceased soldier. Our family also went on a walking ghost tour. There are many to choose from and the walks allow you to delve deeper in the history, whether you believe in ghosts or not.
The big adventure once we found a home and became settled was the derecho that hit the DC area. We were without power for five days and also experienced record high heat. It was our welcoming into the neighborhood. Fortunately, we did not have any trees fall on our home or cars. We did have neighbors that experienced this.
Overall, we love it here. I visited the Torpedo Factory. Wow! I am so excited to go to the Art Nights. Be sure to join me here as I will be exploring the city and visiting a lot of galleries and museums. If you have any must see places, please leave a comment. I discovered the Torpedo Factory from a reader’s comment. Thank you!
