Murdo Girl…the road trip comes to an end

Today was our last day of exploring new places and tomorrow will most likely be our last day on the road. I’m really torn between wanting to keep going and wanting to go home. I know Kip feels the same way. The dogs get more attention when we’re on the road so that would be their choice, but I have no idea what the cat would rather do.

Anyway, here are the best of the pictures I took this morning while at the Vicksburg National Military Park.

(Yes, we saw another little fawn today.)

The Vicksburg National Military Park commemorates the siege and the defense of Vicksburg in 1863 and includes more tham 1,300 monuments and markers, 16 miles of tour road, a restored Union gunboat, and a National Cemetary. It’s an historical must see.

After leaving the park, we took the dogs for a walk by the river, and then brought them back to the rv for their afternoon nap.We wanted to explore the downtown area and have a fun lunch someplace where we didn’t have to unwrap our food. Today was sunny and in the mid-seventies which made it nice to walk around and snoop inside some of the stores as well.

We found a cute little bakery and had a delicious lunch. Kip wanted to taste the brownies. I took a cheese danish to go.

The Mad Baker Bakery

The railroad station

The skies were beautiful today. 

Our epic journey has been an unforgettable adventure.

Thanks dear friends for adding to the fun.

SeeYa Soon!!!

        Not a bummer MG. I just sat home and read your blog. That is what I was attempting to say via humor.

    Your blog always makes me hungry.
    The historical places you visit remind me of the DC trip we took years ago. Also visited Mt Vernon, Monticello, Alexandria, and many Civil War battlefields which brought history alive.
