Gettysburg, PA 2016
John and I are very fortunate to live close to one of the most historical landmarks in Pennsylvania. We visited Gettysburg last Forth of July weekend and were very impressed with this charming little town.
At that time we had only been riding horses for a short while and didn’t realize we could tour the battlefields on horseback. So this year, we planned ahead and made reservations for a hotel and a horseback tour of the Gettysburg battlefields.
It is hard to imagine all of the men, women, children and animals that died on those battlefields so many years ago. This guided tour was both awe-inspiring and breath-taking at the same time. Here are some pictures from our ride.
If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend a trip to this beautiful little town in Pennsylvania. Whether by horseback or on foot, it is a site to see. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I know we will.

Here is another instance where I would LOVE to take credit for this recipe, but I cannot. I stopped by a local orchard and picked up some fresh blueberries. Alongside of various produce items, there were recipes. I asked if it was okay to take a picture of the recipe, and the clerk told me I could just take one. They were printed and in tablet form so you could just tear one off and take it with you. I thought that was a very cool idea.
So, I will share this recipe with the disclaimer, “this is NOT a low-calorie or low-fat food”. That being said, it was oh-so-good!!! Here is the recipe.
Happy Independence Day!!! Have a fun and safe weekend!
