My meds. are working and I feel like blogging tonight or I should say this morning.
These are the dear chicklets that we visited on the East Coast.
At Harper's Ferry, no stone was left unturned or water fountain untested.
Meet Peter Pan and Tinker-Bell.
Much cooperation in the car was bartered for with a promise of kite flying at the battlefields that we visited. We had the most success at Antietam.
Peter Pan who is three, almost four, really felt he could handle it on his own.
What a guy! He did a fine job after his Dad and Granddad taught him the "ropes". It was his hearts desire to fly the kite on his own. He did it well for quite a long time. I will always treasure this moment I captured.
It was a glorious day.
Tinker-Bell with my Daughter in Heart. They are beautiful inside and out.
DH reading about the history that happened on this spot.
We felt that we were on hallowed ground.
"There are no better teachers for those who come after us than the silent monuments on the battlefields, marking the places where men died for a principle they believed right, whether they wore the blue or the gray uniform." Major Wells Sponable, 34th New York Monument dedication
If you have been to Antietam, what did you experience?
Tomorrow I will share some photos of our visit with Eileen of "My Quilting Porch" blogging fame.
