Up early and off to church, only we couldn't find it Norm didn't have the right address in the GPS so we went into Baltimore for the day. Only 20 miles or so from us here at the KOA. We went down to the inner harbor, was a football game day The Baltimore Ravens had a home game and there was so much traffic they love their sport teams in this part of the country, there were tailgate party's all over the place roads closed and police directing the traffic all over took forever to go that 20 miles. Anyways the inner harbor was so nice and the temp. got into the mid 20s very warm.

So off to Washington this am , took the subway in only took 1/2 hour. How much US history can one Canadian take???? Apparently alot cause we did it again today, took the city tour and got the whole deal again. WE saw the Washington monument, the White House the National Museum of Natural History, Charlestown, many monuments, museums and old houses, Arlington cemetery and the Smithsonian. So much to remember but the tour was great and we had a beautiful sunny day temp. was about 75F. Home early and watched the kids in the KOA park doing the Halloween thing again, our second Saturday of Halloween fun and games and they do it all over again next week. As I have said it is a big thing down here the KOAs have the last 3 week ends of the month fully booked and do all kinds of fun stuff with the kids,,, so cool.

To day we went on the KOA tour of Philadelphia with one other couple from the campgrounds, we left at 8:00 and returned a 6:00 a full day of sight seeing. Our tour guide Joyce was great and gave us a lot of history of the area. She told us to eat at the Campos restaurant, a tiny little hole in the wall place and to have the Philly cheesteak, she said they were there for years and were the best in the city, where the locals go and she was right it was very good.We saw the first post office in the US and Ben Franklin was the US post office general, We saw the liberty bell and Independence hall where the US constitution and charter of independence was signed.We went into the Ben Franklin underground museum, Betsy Ross' house and Christ Church ,President George Washington and Ben Franklin were among those who attended this church and it still is an active congregation have 8-9 hundred a Sunday over half being visitors and then we went down to Valley Forge.

Today we went to Atlantic City New Jersey, it is about 1 1/2 hours from our RV park.It was a place I never expected to go to and so cool. Kind of between Vegas and Reno, there are 11 major hotels with Casinos , 3 belonging to Donald Trump some very very fancy. The boardwalk is 4 miles long there are shops and restaurants all along it .And a great sandy beach and lots of walkways to the beach at the end of the boardwalk is an amusement park like the PNE very cool place. We went into some of the casinos and had lunch at Hooters very good. When we left Norm bought me a funnel cake and then I was swarmed by sea gulls they were dive bombing trying to get my cake kind of scary.
