Ash Lawn-Highland, home of President James Monroe, May 2015

After a sad event in my life, I spent part of the next day in this wonderfully peaceful place, set in the hills above Charlottesville, Virginia, not far from the more famous (and much more busy and expensive to visit) Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson.

It was very quiet, a slight breeze blowing and just the sound of birds singing.



A very interesting guy, I discovered - see here




An old game where you flip a ball up with your foot and hit it with something like a small cricket bat to a group of catchers








A modest home for a great man, set in a beautiful part of the world
