Mom had downloaded a podcast on her iPod so as we walked around the historics she could lissen to the stories about the olden day places. I just sniffed the informashun posts and readed the pee mail wot sayed the same thing. Well, more or less.
Here be some of the places wot we learned about on the podcast tour:
|This do not be the real courthouse - it be moved 3 miles away but this be a replicashun as the visitor center.|
|This be where Generals Grant and Lee promised not to put the bitey on each udder any more.|
|This be where parole passes woz printed for the soldiers so they would not go to prison camps wot would be like us going to the animal shelter. *shudder*|
|On the left be a store and the yellow howse do be the Jonathan Woodson Law Office.|
|This be wot is left of the old prison wot burned down.|
|This be the noo prison and I think the peeples in here do be needing that Jonathan Woodson Law Office from afore.|
|I dussn't know wot this be coz there woz no sign or pee mail to read.|
|This be where the soldiers did snarly face at each udder fur the last time.|
So then we headed down to the Appomattox River to start our hike coz there do be hiking trails there too!
To get to the hiking trails we had to walk in the grass along the road and the grass woz wet from the rains and kinda tall. Seriously mom, wot woz you thinking? Is you aware that your pants be wet all the way up past your knees?
So finally we gotted ofur to the trails. Ahhh, this do be more like it.
We found anudder historic howse in the woods:
And we hiked along the Appomattox River that we had seened afore:
So at the end of the hiking trails we comed out by this cemetery where some soldiers from the Civil War do be buried:
Then we walked across the field back to our car. We had done a 6 mile hike all togedder.
Then we just hanged out at the cabin the rest of the day. Mom readed her book and I napped while we woz waiting on better wevvers so come.
