We left the same day Jerri and Tim left PA to return to their home in Bloomington, Il. We drove part way on Thursday and finished the drive to Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site on Friday. We had expected to stay at French Creek State Park but our reservations didn't make it into their system. We decided to go to Warwick Campground near the state park.
Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site was disappointing for me. Most of the reenactments have been sequestered away. The lone person showed how the furnace worked. On the weekend they would do a firing or two. No one cooking on the open fireplaces. No store open to see the goods.
Cordelia happily watched the movie with us. Knowing we were going in to Philly tomorrow made us want to share with her our Independence Day movie.
Oh no....Lew stays behind!
We made this trip because Cordelia wanted to see Philadelphia. Lew had damaged his knee making trailer improvements that will be in another blog. So he decided to stay back the first day and C and I did the first trip without visiting Independence Hall which Lew was very anxious to see too.
First a train
Early (but not too early), Cordelia and I drive off to Malvern to the commuter train station.
