When I was a kid every once in a while my parents would takes us to a Travel log. It was usually in The Bluffton Movie theatre ( so you know how long ago that has been ) And usually aside from it being in a movie theatre I didn’t find it all that exciting.
So I hope my posts aren’t boring you all too much.
But if they are, lucky you can always exit out!! :)
This pic is taken from the Lincoln Monument obviously towards the Washington monument.
Next we headed to the Vietnam Wall memorial
The wall with all the names, started narrow and grew…
The wall with our reflection, So many names, so many died.
So sobering, so sad!!
Next we headed to the White House
Tyler thought all the corner street Vendors looked cool and wanted to stop for a treat.
We thought we would all grab a snack
until we realized that a simple good Humor ice cream bar costs $4.00 Tyler settled on a lemon ice which we all shared. He is soberly displaying $4.00 here.
We asked if they did White House tours…
Basically you had to register 6 months in advance with your state government.
So this is as close as we got!
Next we headed to the Korean war Monument
Statues of soldiers
A reflection wall with etched faces. Do you see me in the middle?
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE
Now it was time to head back to the truck, our 3 hour time limit was almost up.
We saw this on the walk back. I just thought it was cool I am not sure what it really is.
We were in luck and they let us check in early. Isn’t it lovely?
Actually it was clean, had a great free breakfast, was only about 2 miles from the capitol and was fairly inexpensive.
Sadly the pool was only open from 11:00 am to 8:00pm so we never got to swim. Plus as If you noticed the pool was in the middle of the parking lot :)
We changed clothes, I showered and we headed back out for more sight seeing!!
Well that’s all for today on Washington DC
Stay tuned for part 3.
