Mt Vernon is right now being refurbished and so the picture above is from the Internet. However, we could still see some of the front of the mansion looking at it from the side. The countryside is just beautiful. It is so green and full of forests and other vegetation. Behind the house is the great Potomac River. Mt. Vernon was the home of our first President of the United States, George Washington. I loved touring the house, the outer buildings, the gardens, the farm, going down to the river and being on the river. I loved hearing the history. It was a wonderful tour.
It was soooooooooo hot, but on the boat they had A.C. on the lower level. We sure enjoyed the coolness.
We walked through some museums, saw a really nice movie about General Washington and his famous battle with the British. We walked and walked and walked.
