Staycation 2011- Lake Monticello, Movies, Ashlawn, and Tennis

We had a great week at home this year for our vacation. We played tennis alot and visited our lake often. In addition, we visited Ashlawn (the home of James Monroe) that we have passed everyday coming home for 5 years. It was time to see the historic place that is overshadowed by Monticello (which we pass coming home everyday, too, since they are only about 2.4 miles apart). To balance out the history lesson, we saw a double feature movie in Richmond and enjoyed a day there. We ended the week by playing in a tennis tournament. Great week of relaxation and just enjoying the place that we call home...Charlottesville, Lake Monticello, and Central Virginia.

I decided to participate in the Swim across the Lake for the Fourth this year. I convinced some others to join me.
