Yesterday we took some time from our moving to attend an open house at Drumthwacket, the NJ Governor's mansion.  While Governor Christie does not live at Drumthwacket, he does stay there when he is in the area.

We arrived right before 11:00, our scheduled time for the open house.

We waited a few minutes by the gate before it opened and we drove to the front door.

The front lawn was quite lovely.

A pretty fountain area.

Lovely plantings.

The Master Gardeners of Mercer County maintain Drumthwacket's gardens.

Every estate needs a pond!

The curved area is an office with beautiful views of the gardens. A nice place to work!

This was the original Governor's home.

A last look before driving home.
