hello, george

i won a few tickets to Mount Vernon, President George Washington’s home.

it’s easy to spend a day or three at Mount Vernon.
the Reynolds Museum & Education Center is awesome all by itself
and is a good contemporary companion to the history embedded
in Washington’s mansion, outbuildings and gardens.

George & Martha had the best view on the Potomac.

in front of the mansion whose style became iconic.

they make their own tools and do custom period repairs at Mount Vernon.

we had a delightful chat in the parlor with Martha.
(this historical reenactor was worth her weight in gold.)

thanks, Washington Parent for an excellent first visit.
