After having visited Washington's home in Barbados (see earlier posts of my internship in the Caribbean), I was eager to visit Mt. Vernon, Washington's estate about 30 minutes from my house in Virginia. Mt. Vernon was hosting a surprise party to honor Pres. Washington, including cake, reading of his inauguration speeches, and visits from others. While my friends and I showed up fashionably late and missed the singing and cake, we still enjoyed a walk around Mt. Vernon.

What a view! Thanks Whit for driving down from Boston to join us.

Happy Birthday George!
