A Historic Visit: George Washington Birthplace National Monument



It was less than two weeks ago that the temps in our area were in the high 70's. Mid-afternoon today it's reached a high of 26, which made for the icy photo op above.

Just last Saturday it was 59 degrees and sunny which was ideal sightseeing weather for me. My daughter and I drove over the Rappahannock River to the Northern Neck where we visited George Washington Birthplace National Monument. This was our fourth visit to this lovely historic park. We strolled the grounds for awhile, each of us taking photos with our iPhones, before settling at a bench situated next to Pope's Creek for our picnic lunch. It couldn't have been a more perfect day!
