Day 46, Gettysburg, day of leisure

BEST: The guided tour of the Gettysburg battleground

WORST: Having to go to bed early while the family got to watch the Olympics.

MOST UNEXPECTED: Finding out why the cannonball malt shop had its name, it had a cannonball from the battle in its wall. We had ice cream/sodas here twice before I figured it out.

This was a great day, although not really related to bike riding. We hired a guide at Gettysburg to drive our car and show us the battlefield for three hours. Very Very informative, she knew all of the monuments as well as all of the details of the battle. We also walked the town, at lunch, ate dinner, at the oldest building in town (1776), ate ice cream, went back to the room for Olympic viewing, and then I had to go to bed at 9:00 so I could meet up with the bike group at 5:30 a.m. for the next days ride. There are no pictures posted yet because my IPAD adapter crashed. I will be able to post pictures on Day 45, so come back for scintillating scenes.
