Buckingham– met up with Merlin, an old friend of mine from Cranbury. We had fun playing in the rain at a place called Washington Crossing, put up a couple of deer and if it hadn’t been for the river between us and them we would have got them. Nice walk along the canal next to the Delaware River, one long straight place to race with Merlin.
I am told that Washington Crossing is where George W crossed the Delaware on Christmas night 1776 and defeated the British. Mark says that was cheating and even the Germans didn’t do that.
Mark – A dog walking friend of Lisa’s, Marion, moved to Doylestown a while back so we took the opportunity to drop in for lunch and a walk at Washington Crossing. It also meant that we could tick off another state (Pennsylvania).
Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River, which occurred on December 25, 1776, during the American Revolutionary War, was the first move in a surprise attack organized by George Washington to defeat the British troops quartered in Trenton.
