in charlottesville, virginia...

We spent the night at the KOA in this area...
and found out that right nearby was Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.
We've seen it many time before...
but always as an image on the back of the American nickel.
 

 
Now we saw it in colour...
so much better!
 
I tried 'mailing' this postcard this morning...
and had problems with blogger and Wi-Fi...
so let me try this again.
 
PS. We are now in the mountains of North Carolina...
where it might snow tonight!

  1. A pretty photo. Drive carefully on those roads. It might be slippery.

  2. I was wondering what happened this morning. Beautiful photo. So you are in Katie and Andrew's state now but they live right next to the coast...

  4. Oh, Monticello is a wonderful place to visit...so full of history and ingenuity and fascinating architecture. And those gardens...sigh...

    Enjoying your post cards as I am "traveling" with you this time. :)

  6. Snow? That's crazy. I certainly hope that the weather behaves itself.

  7. How beautiful Monticello is in real life, as seen from your photo. Much better than the back of a nickel! Ooh, snow. I hope for a little of the white stuff this winter here. Hope you stay cozy and warm in your motorhome.
