What: Bus trip from Brunswick to Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA (just south of Philadelphia) and Winterthur Mansion nearby in Delaware. Both are DuPont estates.
When & Where: Saturday April 11, 2009, leaving Brunswick at 6:30 a.m. from the commuter train parking lot to arrive at Longwood Gardens by 9:00 a.m. and returning to Brunswick at 6:30 p.m. that evening. Tripods are allowed at Longwood Gardens from 9-noon and at anytime on the Winterthur grounds, but not at all inside the mansion.
Cost: $60 per person. This includes the bus, tickets to both Longwood Gardens and Winterthur and gratuity for the bus driver. (From Brunswick, MD)
Why: Because we like to see and photograph beautiful flowers. Bring your tripod and macro lenses and be prepared to be amazed and capture some of the best images you'll ever take.
Other info: We need at least 25 people to make this trip a go, so it is open to ANYONE who wants to go, not just photogs. So feel free to invite anyone you think would enjoy it, but do invite folks from other camera clubs because we will be watching photography DVDs on the bus. The bus DOES have an onboard bathroom. Lunch is on our own. There is a restaurant at Longwood Gardens that offers both full service and cafe style or we can find a local restaurant before going to Winterthur. We'll get a consensus the week before on what everyone would like to do.
