We left Shenandoah driving in rain down the Skyline Dive and stopped to visit Monticello, the home of the amazing Thomas Jefferson in lovely sunshine. Our guide was brilliant giving us all sorts of fascinating information and the gardens were charming too. We stopped by the graveyard where he is buried and I was taken by the pair of memorial stones below.
Virginia is the state for lovers!
Williamsburg in the evening was alive with buskers and blooming with flower beds. We ate in a pub called The Hound’s Tale and met the very friendly owner.
