The weather turned a bit wet for our time in Charlottesville (or C-ville to the locals), but we still got to look at some decent architecture etc.

The University of Virginia was founded by Thomas Jefferson and 'The Lawn' was designed by him. It has two large wings of pavilions connected by a colonnaded walkway running down from the Rotunda - the original library.

Monticello was Jefferson's home, up on a hill just out of Charlottesville. The nice chap kept lots of slaves to do his gardening for him, and when the mood struck him some other 'duties'...

The main building (Jefferson's home)

The views were somewhat limited by the inclement weather.

  1. There's something of mystique about reflections. Truly reflective.
