Had a lovely stroll which was excellent and I feel really invigorated with all that fresh air. On the trail and walk back there were many interesting and unusual sights. Had coffee and cornbread in a café, which was nice.
I'm feeling great and a little sad at some of the events here, and that this town never really had a chance. ...
... there was a great walking/biking trail which goes on for miles so we cycled a long way, picnicking by the River and watching the canoeists maneuvering their way through some minor white water challenges. Back in the Town, the old buildings had mainly been set up as Restaurants and shops with lots of information about the history of the place. It had various claims to fame, two of which being that it had been a Civil War battle ...
