Meeting Prince Charles at Pioneer Farm, Mount Vernon

It was a big day at Mount Vernon.  I was assigned to candle-making this morning.  After we worked with the 800 children who had signed up Colonial Days, Prince Charles and his entourage visited.   We had an engaging conversation about beeswax and a few other things, and he finished up our visit with a warning about the breezy conditions, the fire, and our attire.  He was absolutely correct -- we'd spent most of the day being careful with the fire and our skirts!
