Woke up this morning to cloudy skies, but no rain. The clouds didn’t last long, and it turned out to be a glorious sun-shiny day. It was still cool though.
We covered parts of four states today. Started out in Allentown, then headed south through Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. It was all good.
Coming through Pennsylvania, we got off the interstate briefly in Carlisle. The downtown area was beautiful and filled with old homes and buildings. It was settled in the 1750’s. It is also home to the Army War College. We also saw an historic marker with information about Molly Pitcher.
Even though it was mostly interstate today it was all good. The roads were in excellent shape.
After seeing the terrible waste of venison from vehicle-stricken deer, we finally saw live ones in Virginia. Leslie saw the first one in the woods off the shoulder of the interstate, then we both saw another one. There was a third one walking across a gravel road off to the side. Finally, we saw 10 or 12 feeding in high grass in a field by the roadway. It was very exciting, especially since it was about 2:00 in the afternoon. We, of course, would be glad to come back up here and help the Virginians deal with this serious whitetail infestation.
After a stop at the Shenandoah Harley Shop, we got to our motel for the night. I was so excited, after two weeks without, to see grits advertised on the menu for the complimentary breakfast. I will have some tomorrow.
