Saturday Snapshot: George and Martha

Mount Vernon, April 2011
My sister and I visited the Washington DC area a couple weeks ago. On a day with amazingly good weather, we took the tour of Mount Vernon. I'd already been there several years ago, but this was the first time for her. Highlights include admiring the vivid colors of the interior walls/rooms; baby lambs; sharing a tasty tuna sandwich; and seeing George's teeth.

Haha 'George's teeth.' I didn't see that coming.

I love visiting old historic places like this. We were at Monticello a few years ago and we saw a lot of really cool stuff - except Jefferson's teeth! lol

I've not ever been to Mt. Vernon. Sounds fun. Baby lambs, tuna and teeth, what more could you want? LOL

I've been to the DC area...but we didn't make it to Mt. Vernon. I like the arched porch area.

It sounds like you guys had a fabulous time! I've only been there once and thought it was great.

I was there many years ago and probably didn't appreciate it like I would today.

You know, I had never seen a photo of it. I tlooks nothing like I expected. And I read that the walls back in those days were often quite bright and busy.

This place looks like a great place to visit. We love visiting historical places and often map our vacation routes to hit up as many as possible.

The photo is great. Nice colours, great composition. Well done.
