On our way home, after the Natural Bridge, we stopped in Lexington for lunch. Keith wanted to see how close the Virginia Military Institute was, and it was just a few minutes away, so we drove over. Luckily, we had perfect timing, because we walked up right when the cadets were doing drills. They must be starting their school year already. You can see them in the distance. The whole school is built like a castle. Every person we saw had a certain uniform and a role to fill.
Notice this hall has 'Stonewall Jackson' carved right over the doorway, and a statue nearby.
I thought this was cool: the admissions building is an old house.
Notice Carson's new t-shirt.
Very neat to see the cadets in action.
