MD Treatment

We were glad the weather did clear this morning as promised, and we flew right over the Gettysburg civil war battleground.

Only a few generations ago, brother fought brother over what now is such a peaceful place.

Now many of them are laid out in intricate patterns of stone, locked in creative formations for the ages.

Shaking off a tragic sense of doom we turned toward Martin State, MD. There’s a great and relatively inexpensive (for this area) airport there with lots of cool planes for me to look at while we waited for the train.

The MARC train into DC was about an hour ride, and cost $12 one way. For both of us! So after a short hike dragging a suitcase and bag we’re settled into a nice hotel two blocks from the heart of DC and tomorrow we walk. A lot. Looking forward to a fun and fascinating day.
