Washington, D.C. - Day 1A Photos

I've spent the last hour going through our photos.  It's going to take me a few days to share them all.  Last Wednesday was our first full day in D.C.  We rode the Metro in and went to the Air & Space Museum first.  Then we took the capitol tour.  At the end of the tour they showed us the star above in the center of the room right under the rotunda.  This is the center of the building, which is in the center of the city.  So, we're each standing in a different ZIP code in the photo.

After that we went to the Library of Congress, walked by the Supreme Court, then went to the art museum.   This was L's favorite art museum.

Jo found a few paintings she liked, too.

I found a whole room of small French paintings which were much more my style, but I did like the Picasso's, too.

That's when we got really tired & thought about going back to the hotel.  But it had rained a little and was much cooler.  So, instead, we got drinks at McD's and looked at a map to see how far the monuments were.  Leopold went with us & helped plan our tours. 

Me & Jo walking down the mall:

It doesn't look very big, does it?  But as we got closer, it got bigger & bigger!!!

See L down at the bottom?  Here we are walking again.  We walked a LOT that day!

To be continued....
