Going back is the hard part especially if you have rested your body already. The kids were a little exhausted although they were very glad that they get to rest their feet and legs for another half our 9-mile walking journey.
Weirton is a small city that boarders three states, PA, WV, and OH. The steel mill used to be the booming industry here but according to what I've read, the Union ruined it. Small part of the mill is still operating but the huge part is no longer inoperation which is sad. You can see the steel coil onthe background.
Thi is a natural spring water. Ihave drink a couple of times here already and I didn't get sick. We didn't let thekids drink here because I am not sure if their immune system can tolerate it. Even my husband is afraid to take a drink. Hesaid that his Dad used to get gallons of water from this place when his grandma is visiting them because she didn't like city water.
We are so thrilled that our children did it without compaining, not even a slight whine came out from them. We are so proud of them. Not many kids do this kind of activity especially at their age. I am so glad we are raising some real tropper individuals. It's been 4 days since our long walk. We have been going for walks around the neighborhood but no long walk so far. We might do it again before the summer is over.
