Inside the house is a harpsichord that I've played on every time we've been here. All the children did too. They also got a lecture on how a harpsichord works and how it's different from a piano. The learning never stops; even on vacation!
This morning we took a tour of the gardens. It was really cold. The two older children went with me. We learned about the history of the plantation and the gardens. The two most interesting things was the cannonball stuck in the side of the chimney from a Yankee cannonball and the signatures etched into the brick facade of the house. The guide said that various owners and visitors would sign the house; it was the colonial form of a guestbook.
More to come as it happens. Tomorrow we head to Tennessee. Ciao! Or I guess I should say "Fare Thee well".
