Daddy D and I have arrived home after a quick trip to the east coast. Before our trip began, we had three goals in mind, to visit Thomas Jefferson's home, Monticello, to go to the Mariner's Museum to learn more about the Monitor and the Merrimack, and to see the place where the Wright Brothers successfully invented and flew the first airplane.
We loved this history and science oriented vacation, but we like trips to state and national parks as well. One summer we were fortunate to stay at all of the state parks with lodges in the state of Indiana. On these trips, we hiked, and I photographed wildflowers.
What is your favorite kind of vacation? Do you enjoy visiting monuments? Do you prefer an action-packed vacation of whitewater rafting or skiing? Would you rather lay out at the beach and soak in some rays while listening to the gentle swish-swishing of the waves? Or would you rather head to New York, London, or Sydney for days of shopping and nights of theater and fine dining?
