Aside from visiting family and relaxing at my dad's, the one outing we did take was to visit Monticello--the home of Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States.
Although there are many things I did and places I went in all of my summers spent in Virginia with my dad, Monticello was not one of them. My mom tells me that I went as a young child (in fact, she says I was about Nora's age), but of course, I don't remember that.
It was a nice fall day to take a ride up there and walk around.
It was a nice way to spend an afternoon, but we generally like doing stuff like this. If you like history and you're ever in the area of Charlottesville, Virginia, I'd certainly recommend a trip up to Monticello.
Probably a slim chance, but... have any of you ever been to Monticello? What did you find most fascinating about Jefferson's plantation and/or his life?
