I had never been and was very excited...
The weather was overcast, warm, and lovely...
With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own John F Kennedy
The (long) walk toward the Potomac River, was lined with huge statues of every war.
We happened to be there on Rolling Thunder 2011, a HUGE motorcycle rally on the Capitol in memory of all soldiers.
The web said over 40,000 and I believe it.
Beautiful, moving, and loud.
We finally found our way across the street to the monuments.
Actually that is the World War II Memorial, shaped like a Roman Colosseum, it is amazing...
We decided that was as far as we could go...
So the menfolk walked the miles back to the truck and picked us girls up:).
Nice to be a girl.
We tried to drive by the White House (sweet hubby actually drove by THREE times), it is tucked in between two HUGE buildings, off the road, and you have to walk to it.
By that time we didn't want to walk another step.
And that is ok.
What a tiring, wonderful day!
