Sadly, our days in DC had to come to an end. It was a short stay. On our way home we decided that stopping by Mt. Vernon would be a good idea!
We were not allowed to take photos inside the home.
This is the last room of the house to be completed. It is the dining room. They also used this room for dancing. This was the room that the Washingtons liked to show off. The wall paper is painted paper, the green paint was made from crushed malachite.
The path to the pioneer farm and wharf. George Washington made a good bit of his fortune fishing from the Potomac. Shad and herring he had salted and sold
Up close and personal with the ox
Lon took the pictures of the Oxen.
We got back on the road to head for home. It was a great time at Mt. Vernon. We would love to go back
We stopped at this burger place in Wilson North Carolina. I have tried to rotate the picture and it will just not save, as soon as I can figure it out I will fix it
We pulled into the driveway about 9pm. Made some good time.
It was a fun trip to DC! Looking forward to doing it again!
