I didn't take many pictures at Gettysburg since we were touring in the bus and it was raining off and on. All of these come from Little Round Top, which had the best views anyway.

Mount Vernon

We went to Mount Vernon (which I kept referring to as Martha's Vineyard) after the museums. It rained on our way out but cleared up when we got off the bus. Our time there was a little short because of traffic back in the city.

I don't have a lot of photos because you weren't allowed to take pictures inside the house... I took this one before the lady said anything ;o)

There wasn't much furniture but the beds were really short (Handy would never have fit in one comfortably) and some of the original paint colors were strange, like bright green strange.

The view from the back was awesome. They said that Mount Vernon had bought all the property on the far side of the river so the view would be the same as when old George lived there.

We went to two of the three Smithsonian museums... We only had 3 hours which is hardly enough for one of the museums.

We started at the Air and Space... mainly because we had to go there to eat lunch. Neither of us are very interesting in that type of stuff. It made for some cool pictures though.

I really don't think I would try to get airborne in this thing... it seems pretty flimsy even with the wires attaching it to the ceiling.

We spend the majority of our time at the American History museum.

This Stradivarius was amazing. I love the detail on the side.

Julia Child's kitchen

Behind this metal flag was the flag that inspired the Star Spangled Banner... It was pretty awesome. I think that may have been my favorite thing we saw. It was huge but the exhibit made me dizzy because it was dark and the ground looked like it was moving. The dizziness may have been a side effect of all the cold medicine I was taking but the display didn't help.
