We begin the day by searching for an Urgent Care. Seems we find a reason on each trip. Ava has been swimming everyday since we hit the road. She has an ear ache which we found out is "swimmers ear". Since she is flying home soon, we wanted to get the steroid drops started. Urgent care was very easy...getting the prescription took a couple different Pharmacies.

After we went home and doctored her up we headed out to Valley Forge National Park.

Valley Forge was the site of the 1777-78 winter encampment of the Continental Army. Our first stop was the Visitor Center. Here, we watched a movie which gives a great perspective of how the encampment was put together, the planning, the training and what the winter did to the soldiers.

We opted to take the driving tour. The grounds are very well kept with beautiful countrysides. Driving the area shows you how much ground they covered. There are several stops such as Washington's headquarters, Artillary Park and many Memorial's We even saw a wedding at the Memorial Chapel and wedding pictures being taken at the National Memorial Arch.

Then back to camp.
