Pilgrimage 2006 - Day 2

You know, I was thinking. This years Pilgrimage began wonderfully. We arrived in beautiful Stevens, PA and had a wonderful evening at Thorpe Manor. Day two brought about a little nervousness in the Co-Founders because of the weather forecast! It just didn't look good, but we said "it's the Pilgrimage and we know it'll be alright. You see, over the past seven years we haven't had one rain out! Crease arrived at about 8:15 a.m. and after a couple pictures we were off to historic Gettesburg. The weather was beautiful! God blessed us richly and we really enjoyed our day discovering the battlefield! One piece of advice for anyone going to Gettesburg, get the guide to give you the tour! It is well worth the money and we had a guide that was obvious he enjoyed his job.

The tour is over so it's off to Baltimore! We did not see a drop of rain all day long! We got to the inner harbor and had about a half hour before dinner. We dined at Ba Ba Lu's. They serve cuban style food that was simply teriffic! After about a one mile walk, it was off to Oriole's Park at Camden Yards! This is a great park! I can see why the designers of place like Jacobs Field and Comerica went to see this one! It is a must see for any avid baseball fan. After the game (which the O's won) they put on a very nice fireworks show and then it was back to Thorpe manor.

All in all day two was a huge success! The deca-gang got all they could have ever wanted and more! I will let you know about day three the next time I have an opportunity. Be blessed beyond belief today.
