We ended the trip with a great visit to Mount Vernon, home of George Washington – you know, the dollar bill guy. We toured the grounds of his massive estate, and some historical tourists checked out the mansion … and others laid out in his back yard. We enjoyed the visitors center, with a great interactive movie (it snowed) and a glimpse of Washington’s teeth.
After a great lunch (those 12 letters …), we toured the FDR and Jefferson Memorials. We ended our stay in DC with a very quick visit to one of two Smithsonian Museums. After a tearful goodbye to tow of the best guys in the world, our drivers Tyrone and Joe, we made it to the airport for the final leg of the trip. See everyone at Mitchell!
