Hanging Out in George Washington’s Bedroom

Hanging Out in George Washington's Bedroom

It may not be widely known in the US, but Barbados once played host to a young George Washington, many years before he became the general that would lead the US to independence. The house that he stayed in with his brother has been restored as a historical site. So yes you can visit a “George Washington Slept Here” site while on your vacation in Barbados!

Some time ago I had the opportunity to photograph the building at night lit by candlelight and torches as it would have been in the days when young Mr. Washington was staying there. This shot was taken in what is believed by historians to be the actual bedroom where he slept. I took several shots of the desk with it’s single candle and this one emerged as my favourite.

I wonder if George would approve šŸ™‚
