8/1/13 Not a bunch to update except there was a cancellation and we were able to get another spot here at Stonewall Jackson for a few more days. The downside is we have to move to another spot that’s not as good as the one we are in but still a ok spot. And we will stay until Tuesday the 6th and then move up into Pennsylvania.
We have mainly been enjoying view and doing lots of walks and bike riding. Probably does not sound very exciting but it’s great with us.
We did take a ride into a small town called Weston. Weston was founded in 1818 as Preston; the name was changed to Fleshersville soon after, and then to Weston in 1819. The city was incorporated in 1913. Weston is the site of the former Weston State Hospital, a psychiatric hospital that has been closed down for some time but has reopened for tours. We stopped by and picked up some information on it and will be going back in to take one of the tours they offer so more to come on it and the town of Weston.
But in the meantime here are a couple pictures of the town. And I guess there is a American Glass museum also so I’m sure we will track it down as well.
And even though we normally don’t make reservations to far in advance we figured because of the holiday coming up we better. So we have reservations in Bedford PA. next week,,, then Gettysburg,, then on to Intercourse Pa. (it’s in the middle of Amish country),,, then to Kutztown Pa. where we will be over Labor Day until Sept 3rd.
Wow,, so we go from not knowing where we will travel to next sometimes until 1 or 2 days before we move to having reservations for a entire month!!! Oh well,,, it all works.
All of those places seem to have lot’s of things to do in the area’s and tons more within a short drive. So we should stay pretty active.
