On the road again Oct.18 to Mt Vernon, the home of George Washington. The tour guides were so informative, another educational day. We toured the home, walked the fields, saw where George and Martha Washington were buried and watched a film about the founding of our country. A trip through Alexandria was enlightening. Amazing to learn at Colonial time it showed you were rich if the exterior of your home was colorful or the walls inside were colorful. Mt Vernon has intense green walls in the formal dining room.
