June 9th, Day 13: We awoke early this morning and considering the low 50s temperature outside and inside our trailer, we had no choice but to turn on our propane heater for a few minutes just to warm us up. It was a welcome change from the morning heat of only a few days ago. Today we have two things planned. I want to visit a church graveyard to locate the gravesite of another of my great grandfathers, my great, great grandfather David Dewees Ferree, and both Kathy and I and maybe Cabo want to drive out into the Mennonite countryside of Lancaster County to see the beautiful scenery. My great, great grandfather died in 1869 at the relatively young age of 42 and he was buried at the St John's Episcopal Church in the Village of Compass in Chester County, Pennsylvania. As you can see in the above photo, we found his gravestone in the old church cemetery.
As I finish writing this Blog this day it is only mid-afternoon. We are back at our tiny home ready to relax for the rest of the day. As I write, Kathy is reading a good book and Cabo is laying on our bed sound asleep. Tomorrow we are again headed north, this time to a campsite near the small Village of Florida, New York (not kidding) located not far west of the Hudson River and the campus of West Point. Hopefully the weather will be lovely for what we hope will be another very pretty drive.
