We are presently staying at Cherry Hill Campground, MD and today we visited Mt Vernon. At 10 am we steped outside George's mansion just in time to see the shuttle arrive. It flew a route down the Potomac River then around different monuments in D.C. It was an impressive site to see the 747/shuttle and the fighter jet escourt. We have some good pictures of the people working at Mt Vernon dressed in colonial style clothing looking up at the shuttle! It was sureal! Sorry I forgot my cord to download the pictures, but yet again I always have problems adding pictures to this site.
I would like to see the pictures if you can get it to work.
