Wednesday 5/17, we continued up the Potomac to Mt. Vernon. We passed the Dahlgren Navy Proving Ground. We heard booms, There were Navy boats out in the Potomac making sure we were not in harms way. We passed a staging area for buoys, it looked like Christmas.
We made our way to Mt. Vernon. We anchored in front of George and Martha's home.
Thursday 5/18, we headed into the dock with the dinghy. We were touring Mt. Vernon with all sorts of 8th graders from around the country. They were very entertained by this gentlemen who was playing both the fife and drum.
The mansion was very ornate. The rooms were painted colonial blue and green.
The back of the house overlooked the Potomac and the Hydrophilic.
After a nice dinner of a shared Caesar salad and a shared pizza, we walked back to the boat. John commented that he had seen a wifi for a boat call Terraphobic. I remembered that when we were in Pensacola, FL, there was a boat by that same name. The dockmaster in Pensacola told me that the liveaboard was a Blue Angel. I walked over to the next dock and sure enough, the boat name included a Blue Angel plane.
Tomorrow is a down day as we prepare for the family joining us on Saturday.
