Virginia Vacation - Day 1

We arrived in Viriginia a little before 3 in the morning on Monday.   We caught a few hours of sleep, then  started an exciting day!

We went to Michie's Tavern, a tavern built around 1784.

They had period hats available for everyone to wear.

Then, we traveled up the road to Monroe's house.  We were about to tour it when we realized we didn't have enough time to do both it and Monticello.  We decided that we would rather see Monticello.  So, we saw a bit of the gardens and the foyer of Monroe's house.

Then we went to Monticello.
