Acting like a tourist where we live

Today we took a ride up to Morristown to see Washington's Headquarters. Interesting yet disappointing at the same time - the Museum & Ford Mansion have changed. Hubby was expecting to see the items he saw back when he was there on a school trip & I was expecting the same from his stories. Our tour guide, a National Park Service Ranger named Pam told us the items have been switched out over time.

Isn't Morristown fantastic? It's a great place to visit - I love all the colonial landmarks and the shops. Have you ever gone to the Seeing Eye? You can schedule visits there to see how the dogs are trained and where the people go to be trained to work with their dogs. I did my master's thesis on those dogs, and they are truly amazing. --teri

Morristown is great. I appreciate any town that truly appreciates its' history, both good and bad. It's changed a lot since the last time I was there, at least compared to my memory. It's always a bit startling to me when you see so much wonderful history against such modern, often garrish structures! (Especially those that weren't there when last visited! Ah progress).

I've heard of the Seeing Eye but never been. Sounds like an amazing experience!

I love playing tourist in Milwaukee. There is so much to do and see here... and so many great places to eat. I love exploring new places and then showing them off to friends and family when they come to visit. Hope you're feeling better!
