Country retreat

Claymont Court Mansion, Charles Town, WV

A few glimpses of Charles Town, WV, where I spent this past weekend. The occasion was a retreat at Claymont Court Mansion, a historic home built in 1820 by Bushrod Washington, George Washington's grand-nephew.

The ruined garden

It's not exactly wilderness, but I enjoyed spending some time in a place where the vistas stretch a little farther than a city block.
