Seeing the General!!
This is the path to the porch from the North Lane of house. And as we came around the front of the porch......................
............The General was standing on the porch. It is said that Washington's favorite time of the day was the morning. He was ever so gracious to allow us to take photos of him.
This was many one of many, many highlights of my trip to Mount Vernon!!!! He was preparing for the upcoming 4th of July festivities at his home. One of which is these new daytime fireworks they were testing just down by the river front.
They looked like cotton candy as they exploded! We are hoping that the General will be joining us tonight for drinks on the porch!!!
