GFRT- Day Nine

We spent day 9 at Mt. Vernon. It was a good day to go as they were having a Colonial Fair and Market on the grounds. They had 18th century attired craftsmen and food and music. This was probably our favorite day of the vacation. When you see the pictures, you'll know why.

This tree was planted shortly after Washington died, very early in the 1800's:
