I am having trouble with my laptop so it has gone in to be fixed. I do have my iPad but it is very tricky to add photos to my blog, and very frustrating. (If you have any advice I would be very happy to learn something new.) Anyhow, I found a post that I never got round to publishing from earlier in the year. Have a great weekend everyone and thanks again for visiting.
These are the last few photos from Gettysburg.
This is a statue of Abner Doubleday. For years we had thought that he was the man who invented baseball, but this apparently wasn't so and was a myth. However, he was a career US Army officer and Union general in the American Civil War. As I read at Wikipedia, he fired the first shot in defense of Fort Sumter, the opening battle of the war, and had a pivotal role in the early fighting at the Battle of Gettysburg. You can read more about him here.
The other photos were taken quickly because of the bitter cold that day. I didn't hang around to make any more notes. We resolved to visit again in the warmer months. These were taken on Sunday, April 8th, 2018.
Beautiful skies but we hurried back to the car as we were slowly turning into popsicles.
a beautiful place to visit. I have never tried to do a post on a tablet, only on laptop or desktop. so no help from me.. hope it gets back to you soonReplyDelete
Thanks Sandra :). I am thinking I just have to be patient.Delete
The cold seems a long time ago now, but it will be here again soon! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
I agree Christine :)Delete
looks like a beautiful place, i have never been!! "turning into popsicles" - good one!!ReplyDelete
my only advice on trying to post from an iPad is - don't try, it's too hard. that's it!!!
Thanks Debbie, that is the general feeling I am getting.Delete
I would love to spend time at Gettysburg. Beautiful shots!ReplyDelete
I would suggest that until the computer issues are sorted, it might well be easier to just go into a public library to use a computer in order to set up posts.
Thank you William and thank you also about the library tip. If I don’t get my laptop back by then, that’s what I will do.Delete
No I woudl wait until you get your laptop cake Denise, as it is too frustrating.Looks like a great place to visit. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the good advice Margaret. That is probably what I will end up doing.Delete
Sigh at the computer woes. I am appalled at just how far they have infiltrated my life.ReplyDelete
Loved travelling to Gettysburg again with you.
I could say the same thing EC.Delete
I love visiting these historical places. My husband and I both do. Love these crisp clear pictures.ReplyDelete
I still can't figure out how to post from my chrome book. I give up.
Thank you Betsy, and I think I will be patiently, trying to at least, waiting for my laptop to come back from the shop.Delete
I also struggle with my tablet, not easy to blog on! Hope your computer is returned very soon. Cheers DianeReplyDelete
Thank you Diane, it's all back now :)Delete
I can't blog from my IPAD either .. which is why I'm behind as we've been on a little getaway and that was all I had with me. Of course I could have visited people and commented on their blogs, but even that seemed harder with the ipad (although it could have been because I was so tired in the evenings that I could hardly hold my head up to even read).ReplyDelete
Hi Sallie, welcome back :) You're right about that. It goes a lot faster answering on my laptop I find, and traveling is extra tiring I agree. When I was on vacation I hit the pillow and that was it.Delete
