Visiting the North East

What a great time Mike and I had as we used plain, train, and automobile to experience a different part of the U.S. We started in Washington D.C., then on to Williamsburg VA where the whole town is about the reenactment of the beginning of the Revolutionary War, then on to VA beach for fun in the sun and sand. We traveled to Alexandria with her cobble stoned walkways then on to NYC area. We probably averaged 5 miles per day of walking so the trip was good for our health and the food was wonderful everywhere we went as well as the weather! We did several firsts on this trip, Harbor Tour at New York, getting a great view of the city, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty, saw Mama Mia on Broadway, and walked in Central Park. I did find the garment district more than once and felt so at home combing through fabrics and trims in countless stores. This was Mike's celebration trip for retirement and I was the happy recipient of the great time. Thanks Mike.
