Kent and I had a couple of fun outings down to Richmond in the month of July.
One of the days we went down to the Science Museum of Virginia to see an exhibit about Leonardo DaVinci. We were surprised to find a line to get into the museum, probably because it was a Saturday.
One of the cool things about the exhibit was that some of his illustrations had been recreated.
One of the exhibits gave information about the Mona Lisa, after it had been analyzed with modern day technology.
After going to the museum we went to see a movie at an old vintage movie theater, called the Byrd.
Some of the ornate decorations in the lobby of the theater. I'll have to admit that the seats were a bit run-down and shabby, but it was a fun experience to hear the organ and see the theater.
We sat in the balcony of the church to get the best view of the reenactment.We weren't allowed to take photos during the performance, but some of the actors came out afterwards and posed for pictures. I didn't know that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were in the church when the speech was given.
Here's a photo of our group.
After the Patrick Henry reenactment Kent and I had signed up for a Segway tour of Richmond. The weather was actually about as perfect as you could hope for in July!
One time I almost lost control going down a big hill, but managed to stop before I crashed.
This statue of Washington is near the state capital.

The Governor's mansion, which I toured many years ago. We
