Vintage Photo: Washington DC vacation 1981, Mount Vernon

An out-building at Mount Vernon.  Tina is very impressed.

Did you know that Mount Vernon was actually Martha Washington's home?  She brought it to her marriage to good ol' George.  Once he retired from being the very first POTUS, they moved back to Mount Vernon where he ran the plantation.  True story.

We went on a tour of Mount Vernon.  My memories consist of what was captured in pictures (slides.  they took pictures on slides.) and this memory of the tour guide saying that we couldn't touch anything and me just really wanting to go beyond the velvet rope to touch a bed.  I didn't.
