August 29, 2007 Gettysburg, PA to Gordonsville, VA

We left the Gettysburg Battlefield Campground today and took Monty for a three and one half hour cruise south on US 15 to Gordonsville, VA. This was a beautiful, green, horse filled trip. We are now set up at the Shenandoah-Crossing Resort, outside of Gordonsville. This is a huge plot of ground. Besides an RV park, it contains a beautiful, old restored lodge, a manor house that was originally built in 1742 that is updated and open for rental for weddings, reunions, etc., a marina, horse stables that allow riding throughout the wooded, mountainous area, a golf course, a put put golf course for us, restaurant in the lodge, and we are just beginning to discover what else is here. We saw a turkey gobbling at a cat near the stables. On the trip here, we saw tons of deer. We crossed from Pennsylvania in to Maryland and then into Virginia.The manor house is shown next. Then comes the lodge, where sister and bro are staying when they come to join us for Labor Day, then the bothered turkey and the bored cat. Tomorrow will be a day to clean up on and around the rig and maybe some battle sites observations.
