Visit to Harpers Ferry

What a fun day.
Mom and Dad took me and 'Lily' and 'Bentley' for a ride today.
It was a two hour drive, but we like the car since we go to work everyday with the family.

We almost did not go, because it was overcast.
The weatherman said that the rain would come and pass, and it would be a nice day.

Well the rain came and passed and came and passed and came...

It rained on and off the whole way there.
When we got there it looked like the rain was gone.
We started the 3/4 mile walk to the town. Half way there it started raining again.
We all got under a very large tree to stay dry, but it kept raining and raining and raining.
So we gave up and finished the walk into town.
We were all wet when we got there.
That was ok, because it was a really warm day, and the rain felt good.
We got undercover when we got into Harpers Ferry.

I was all wet and so was Mom.
All of us were wet.

Mom said the town would normally be crowed, but nobody was out.
We had a good time walking around.

Across the river is Maryland on one side and Virginia on the other.
Mom said we were standing on the West Virginia side.
This was a very important place during the Civil War.

We hiked up to the Cemetery. 

This was one of the outdoor jail cells.
It was creepy.

This was St. Micheal's Church.
It is high on a hill, with a really great view.


The rain finally stopped.
We walked down to the river.

The Civil War soldiers were everywhere.
One came up to 'Lily' and told her that she looked like she would taste good.
The soldiers were so hungry during the war, that they EAT dogs!

Mom said she could have stayed all day and listen to this man play.

This is one of the ruins of a gun factory.
Of course, the sun came out as we were leaving.

With Love, Hanna
