First day of school

Kennett Square adventures!

To kick off our roommate Adventure this morning we started at Longwood Gardens! We got the student discount and purchased the extra tour of the Italian water garden. We had two and a half hours to explore and saw the beautiful gardens and the not-so-air-conditioned hot house. The water lilies where amazing! The tour of the Italian water garden was really neat because we got taken down where nobody else was allowed to go and learned all about the garden. After melting into a puddle we decided it was time to come back to the hotel room and rest for a few. Then we headed to the mushroom Museum! We have now learned the mystery behind why Kennett Square is the mushroom capital of the world, and of course had to purchase some of these delicious mushrooms to take home with us. After stopping back at the hotel one more time to drop off our purchased mushrooms we are now headed into town to explore downtown.
