Here's one of my favorite shots. This is the wharf at Mt. Vernon. Incredible to think who docked here to come see George and Martha.
Here's Jon's back as we're heading toward the house for the tour.
This is also neat to look at--there are 13 trees still alive on the property that were planted by George himself. One of them is in the center-background, over looking the Potomac. What stories it could tell!
And the next time you talk to Kate, be sure to ask her about where we went on the bus. SHe loves to tell people that we "ride a bus and wait our turn and ladies talking [tour guides] at George Washington's house." It's hilarious. Oh, and she'll also tell you we didn't find the pigs.
