Field Trip – Keller Style, Part 6

Day Three, in which it is too cold and too windy to even conceive of walking around downtown.  So we drove to Alexandria.  And drove around.  And stayed in the car.  Because, y’know: heat.  And then drove further down the road to Mount Vernon…

"Because y'know: heat." Ha, yes, I know! I'm lucky there is so much beauty outside my kitchen window, because of that same thing. :-)

I realize that many of my photos on trips are taken from the car because no one wants to get out! But the cold is a big factor so I would have stayed in that car too! Beautiful place!

It is so interesting to hear people that aren't used to the dramatic season changes : ). I have to admit, I was FREEZING today and it was a balmy 23 degrees. : )
