Traveling Thursday

Hey Everyone!
Wow, I almost forgot to show all of you where my peeps ran off to a few weekends ago!  While I was busy in the slammer doing undercover COP research, Mom & Dad ran away to Gettysburg.  They must have managed to have at least a little fun without me...though I'm not sure how.  I gotta admit, that from the pix they brought back, this must be a very historical and interesting place.  There was a cool festival going on so they heard really great brass and blues bands, and saw some great artworks.  I posted the band highlights earlier.  Here are some of the pix from their trip:

A row of cannons along one of the many battlefields.

Overlooking the hillside from inside the Little Round Top Monument.

General George Mead's statue. 
He was born about 1 hour from my home territory!

In the Cemetery, where President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address.

Now we're talkin'!  This artist did all portraits of...DOGS!  Cool.

Some peep obviously had the great good sense to bring his dog.

So, I hope you enjoyed this little peek at historic Gettysburg.
Next week on Traveling Tuesday, I'll show you where they went while we were all at the big Luau!

   Hey don't forget our furiends Dexter and Louis at Schnauzer Days are having a Summer Photo Contest!  See their 7-1-11 post for details!  This will be so much fun.

Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP
