Mt. Vernon

No class Friday meant a trip to Mt. Vernon, George Washington's estate. Yes, it's touristy, but it was the perfect spring day and so worth the crowds. But the place is big enough it didn't even feel crowded. Thanks George for a great house. I came away with a greater appreciation for my state's namesake.
We waited forever to go inside the mansion (no cameras allowed). The front is behind us, so just imagine. Inside were the rooms GW was when he found out he was going to be prez and where he died. so cool.Mansion from the back, which has the most beautiful view overlooking the Potomac.George and Martha's tombs. tons of security here, but awesome.
