FRIDAY THE 13TH OF APRIL: THOMAS JEFFERSON'S BIRTHDAY!

We happened to pick this special day to visit Monticello! We didn't know till we got there that it was his birthday!This is a view of the front entrance, with no people! A rare oportunity, unless you happen to be in the front of the house tour line as we were.
More beautiful tulips in the back of the house. Again, no people! How'd we do that? I'll tell you: patience! Sometimes you have to wait forever for someone to get out of your shot, and just as you're getting ready to shoot, someone else appears!

I think you visited too many places, but that is Monticello, not Montpelier. Sorry. :) Like the tulip pictures though...and the rare shot of the actual front of the house.

You're right Jessi! Visited way too many places in such a short time. Not to mention how much Monticello and Montpelier are alike, wordwise I mean. I fixed it.
