We woke up this morning at 6:30 ready for our day. After a breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon, Thaddeus, the groundskeeper of Westover Plantation, was kind enough to give us a tour. The plantation house was built in the 1700’s by William Byrd II, and the tour gave us a glimpse into the past. We looked into the house’s foyer, library, and dining room, where the Fisher family’s cat, Gypsy, came to greet us. After seeing the inside of the historic house, we went to the back of the property where we found horses and chickens. Sadly, and to Kirk’s dismay, he had to watch from afar as the team interacted with the horses due to his allergy to them.
