Sight Seeing was Beautiful. Got to Bowman's Tower and the man working behind the desk had quite and attitude. I have really bad knees so was not able to go up the tower. But I still gave a donation.

Thoroughly enjoyed the environment, the peaceful setting. After a walk through the area drove up to New Hope. Easy to get off of route 95. Rich revolutionary War history area(s) close by.
