Following on the tails of a beautiful day …
we awoke to rain!  Sheets of rain!
While we debated touring Williamsburg, the rain made that decision for us.

So, we packed up our things, then headed over to the outlets to get Shiloh a new pair of Crocs.
(Her tennis shoes made walking long distances a challenge.)
Then … we set out soon our drive back to the DC area.

We thought about going to Mount Vernon, but in the rain?
So, we texted Jodi Novak, who had lived in DC for quite some time …
and she said GO!
(Both Jodi and I went to the Gettysburg leadership conference with Jay Lorenzen … and walked in the rain for days!  After all, a little rain never hurt anyone, right?)

Our Garmin sent us to the wrong place, which set us back about an hour.
But we still had about 2 hours at Mount Vernon.  It was just right.
I’m so glad we went, as we made the best memories … walking around George Washington’s estate in the rain!  It was the perfect end to a really great trip.
