It is hard to believe that in two days our 2 year, 4 month RV journey will be finished. Today Williamsport, Tomorrow Roanoke then home to Pittsboro, NC. Williamsport is a quaint little town on the Potomac River. It was a key shipping point for coal in the early days of the US using the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal to move the coal to Washington DC.
Today, the downtown area is more residential than commercial and the local style is painted brick.
And the Third Base Tavern, "Last stop before home".
And a few others:
And this last one with a sign saying Civil War Hospital.
This is a National Historic Place at Woodstock, Vt. There is a wonderful old mansion, hiking trails through the woodlands, Robert Frost poems everywhere on little signposts, a working farm and farm museum and more. I was struck by the lovely fall flower garden. This is part of our October in Vermont.
This is the river by our current camp here in Morristown, VT.
It drains a portion of the mountains of northern Vermont and flows into Lake Champlain. There is a lot of French history in this part of the US.
Lamoille may make you want to try something like "La mwal" to speak it, but locals call it "Lamb oil".
Being autumn, the Lamb Oil flow is mild. I took a walk in the river yesterday. Put the water shoes on, grabbed a hiking stick for balance on the rocky bottom and stepped into mid calf deep water and walked a ways up stream. The woods were thick on either bank and the fall color was great. The sensation of walking on the rocks and the water flowing by was sweet. I heartily recommend this activity for anyone.
We are to be in Vermont for another week, then time in upstate New York, finishing with attending our son's wedding in Brooklyn. Then it is drive time home to arrive October 27th, in North Carolina and the new home. We'll be posting the last of our adventures until then. Meanwhile, anybody interested in a very comfortable 5th wheel RV?
