October 7, 2010 – a girls dream (Shopping!!)

justanotherdayinlancaster5170 // October 7, 2010 – a girls dream (Shopping!!) – Rolling Shoe Box | Rolling Shoe Box //

Today we got our mail and sent out some mail, bought the girls more laundry, got some locks for the hitches on the RV, locks for bikes (Set the old ones up wrong, and drug them across pa.), and went out for supper at Millers Smorgasbord. Supper was what I looked forward to the most, but the price was well “remarkably high”, but  the food was only good. We saw some ultra contemporary quilts made by the Amish, though really awesome in their design, they were ultra modern and not really what most quilt lovers would think of.  Well to say the least, the day was pleasant, if not tiring, but we got a lot done. Not much else to say but..

10072010 – Washington Crossing – Fort Mifflin – Valley Forge (Why did he not use the bridge? It was just afew feet to the south.)

 Washington Crossing

Standing where Washington Crossed the Delaware

 There was a good one lane bridge just feet down stream.

 Back to Philadelphia to see Fort Mifflin

 The fort is a noisy place to be. No fly zone? Nah..

 Looking down torpedo hole. We did not see anything
