Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Yesterday after leaving the Flying J in Virginia where we spent the night we got on I-81 heading North 

It was a short time and we were in West Virginia on our way to Harpers Ferry.

But first we went through the old town of Charlestown.  We always like to travel through these old places.
With the old houses.

And the old buildings.

I really like the old court houses better than the new ones.

We did get to Harpers Ferry.  There are more building than I had imagined.

Most of the places were open and you could go inside like this Boarding House that was three floors high.

First you would check in at the desk and it looks as though you had to leave you weapons at the desk.

One of the rooms with a view of the front street.

I like the old General Stores where they sold just about everything you needed.  I remember the old saying if they didn't have it you didn't need it.

It was a hot day and Nancy is still not feeling good.  Her legs are week and still swelling.  In fact I got a well chair for her and was pushing her around so she could see some of the places.

So the place that we stayed the night looked really nice pulling in and finding our spot.
No this was not one of the campgrounds around here that is charging $69.00 a night to camp.
We stayed the night in the parking lot of the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, for free.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

We enjoy the Inexpensive Camping when we are traveling as well.
Glad your Summer Travels are through such beautiful country.
The swelling in Nancy's Legs could be due to poor Blood Flow, maybe a blockage.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It's about time.
