Pennsylvania Trip Day 4........

Today was a tough day. I realize that sounds horribly ungrateful, complaining about a trip I didn't even pay for. But things did not go as planned.

We were supposed to tour Hershey (chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, chocolate), have lunch, and be on our way to Williamsburg.

Our tour guide for the last two days has been a local woman from Lancaster Cointy, Pennsylvania. She was very knowledgeable about the Amish and other local attractions, but her delivery was ... a little ... boring.

We went to Hershey this morning and went to the alumni center for the Milton Hershey school. The school, originally for disadvantaged boys, has a rich and fascinating history. Just not 3 hours' worth of fascination. (Please Google this school and read about it when you have time. I plan to. It trly is a blessing.) Even our own tour guide said she got "confused". I think she was being nice. All day we were looking forward to going to Chocolate World, and by the time we got there, we had exactly one hour. We did have a very nice lunch at the Hershey Hotel, a beautiful venue. Just try to imagine what the desserts were like at the Hershey Hotel.

We were about an hour late leaving Hershey, and that put us right outside Washington, DC right at 5:00. Oh. Joy. We sat in traffic for a little over an hour, and there were some hurting people by the time we got to a restroom. (For some reason no one wants to use the one on the bus.)

We finally got here about 9:30, and tomorrow is another busy day, touring Williamsburg. Hubby told me to take lots of pictures, so I'm thinking it's a place he and I need to come back to.
