A Day Away!

St. Peters Catholic Church    Harpers ferry. I need to see this with my own eyes.:    Yesterday my hubby whisked me away to a place I been wanting to visit for awhile! We went to Harper’s Ferry in West Virginia. Record breaking warm temps helped to make it a wonderful day to be outdoors hiking with the love of my life. We celebrate our 20th anniversary on Wednesday, so this was a Pre-Anniversary getaway 🙂  We WALKED a lot and my legs feel it, BUT it was worth it Thought I would share some pics with you all, in time my pics will be ready to share, but for now I am borrowing from the great site of Pinterest 🙂  This church was built in 1830!

Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, USA St. Peter's Church was originally built in 1833, and remodeled to its current appearance in 1896. It was the only church to escape destruction in Harpers Ferry during the Civil War.
