Day 2 of the southern part of my US Adventure. Andy is at his course, so Melissa and I head to Mount Vernon the home and resting place of George Washington and thankfully it’s a much nicer day ~ somewhere in the 80s (c28C!!).
We have more problems navigating the sat nav than the roads to be honest, but eventually make it up there, after our obligatory stop at Starbucks for a pint of coffee.
It’s odd reading about slaves and how many the Washington’s had to serve in what, in modern times, is a small house for such an important figure. The ground floor of the “new wing” the section on the left of the house is larger than a family home at the time.
