This is the last day for touring of the D.C. area. We like to think we saved the best for last for Brent. George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are his faves. From Ft. Meade it's a 50 mile drive south on I-95 and then down the Potomac river to Mount Vernon. Admission to Mount Vernon is $20 for adults. When you enter be sure to see the 25 minute movie in their theatre, it's very moving about the man, legend and patriot.

According to our itinerary, we'll be seeing you in Hershey, Penn... :)
