November 21/365 Harper’s Ferry, WV

For a stretch of years, we often visited Harper’s Ferry. Bob and Etta Mae ran a B&B overlooking the Potomac. Their house was a contemporary multilevel built into the hillside. The lower two floors were the bits rented out – two bedrooms with private baths separated by a common area with hot tub and wood stove. Bob grew Paulownia trees, and their young stalks covered the hillside. We always coordinated our visit with friends – Tim and Kate, or Marie and John.*

Eventually, Bob and Etta Mae sold out and moved to Texas. We haven’t been back to Harper’s Ferry since.

* I’m not really a B&B sort of traveler and hate meeting strangers before breakfast or when relaxing in a hot tub. Vacationing with friends solved everything.

  1. Ah, the View! I stopped in Harper’s Ferry for the first time in years on a recent MD trip. June 30, heat wave. These days there is a faraway Visitors Center, where you park and take a bus. It’s a good idea, it’s so crowded. (And check out my high-waisted jeans!)
