For her birthday (Jan 1) this year (2006), Roy gave Shelly train rides. Shelly had never ridden a train before, and the scenic railroad shows on PBS made her want to. Of course, January is not the time for such a trip, so it was understood that we'd plan it for later in the year.
This is the story of that trip.
where our heroes visit renowned quilter Mary Beth Bellah and Monticello
where they ride a steam train up a mountain
where they ride another train and watch eagles
where they see the famous battlefield and the cemetery where Lincoln gave his address
where they ride in an Amish buggy...and another train
Kennett Square, PA
where they stay at a nice B&B and meet a big chicken
where they take loads of pictures of plants at the estate of Pierre S. du Pont
where they tour buildings involved in our nation's birth, and eat a cheesesteak
where they view the world's premier collection of antique American decorative arts in the mansion of Henry Francis du Pont
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge
which they crossed
where they visit the site of the battle that inspired Francis "Scott" Key to compose what became our national anthem
