New England Tour - Monday, October 20

Our last day began with breakfast at the hotel at 6:30 am while baggage was being loaded in the motor coach in various compartments for our evening stops at Fremont (for the Ft Wayne group), Elkhart, and Mishawaka (including those transferring on to LaPorte.
7:45 departure for the Gettysburg Museum where we viewed an introductory film, the Cyclorama that depicts Pickett's charge, and a brief tour of the museum which we would return to later in the morning.
9:30 we left with a guide for a tour of the battlefield.
11:30 returned to the Museum for lunch and more time in the museum and gift shop.

12:30 we left Gettysburg for Indiana with stops along the way for rest stops and a meal. One of the rest stops was at Bedford where Connie and I had small Frosty's.  We were able to spot the area of our former home in Everett as we zoomed by on the turnpike.

We arrived at Frement 10:15 and Elkhart about 11:15 pm and were home by midnight.
