Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

Monticello was a first time for me, but even so I could tell lots had been done to restore it and to make it a learning experience.  We saw school children, 3rd grade, taking their year end field trip.  They were studying historical people of the area and since they go to school near Monticello, Jefferson was their local historical figure.  So cute.  The new visitor’s center was very impressive.  Parking was great and from the center you ride in small buses to the top of the hill.  I heard people who had been here 20 years ago talking about all the incredible changes, movies, slave history, specifically the families at Monticello, tours, and museum.

The museum lets you take photos so I caught rooms from within the house which could not be photographed.  Very creative man, who was continually redoing and improving Monticello.

    Kristi, Thanks for your Monticello posts. I’m just finishing an excellent Jefferson biography by Jon Meacham. I highly recommend it. Stay safe and Godspeed! Don & Dar
