I live in the community and this weekend as I went out to get the mail I noticed alot of cars parking on the street. I had forgotten that the Neighborhood Au Pair's had decided to host a Octoberfest Celebration at a neighborhoing home. It was so well attended and after they could drive 5 mins away to the Big Celebration at Fort Belvoir so convient for all.

Then that afternoon I needed to head out of the community and saw so many walking to Mount Vernon from the neighborhood. They were headed to the Mount Vernon Wine Festivle featuring 17 wineries. No need to drive now that is my idea of convience!

It is Wayne and yet it get's missed by buyers who do not realize it's ideal location to one of nation's most beautiful landmarks Mount Vernon. It is a treat to have pout in our back yard.
