Mount Vernon.



We opted to skip the orientation movie. But there was an utterly GORGEOUS miniature. Which term is relative, the thing is huge, and the walls and roof are motorized to open and display the interior.

Then there's an optional movie, which we skipped. The tour was incredible. Gorgeous just doesn't do it justice.





The grounds. Audrey was keen to find some horses, which we did. I think by this time we're all worn out, so pictures are a bit thin on the ground. But we did get these carriages. Martin and Arthur particularly wanted a picture with the sheep.






I'll finish with a picture of the sort of clouds we've been seeing fairly regularly, some ubiquitous statue shots, and our Astronaut Ice Cream Sandwich.
