Knights Ferry News

Jim and Diane Boyer have returned from a vacation in the East. They flew to Baltimore and rented a car, went to Washington, D.C. They toured the Smithsonian, and White House where they got to tour the grounds (only happens twice a year). They went to the top of the Washington Monument (not by stairs) and saw all the Memorials. Diane liked the Library of Congress; it was big. They took in Williamsburg, Yorktown, Jamestown and its plantations, Fredericksburg and its battlefields. They also enjoyed the fall colors. It was quite a trip.
