A Monumental Experience

Washington DC and end of trip

Monday we visited the Spy Museum and then had lunch at the Union Station food court. After lunch it was off to the Zoo. This was a very hot day, even the animals stayed inside and out of sight. We did get to see them feed an octopus.

With all of the walking and the heat we were bushed at days’ end.

Tuesday Lee was finally done with her conference and we decided to make it a monumental experience. So we all boarded a trolley for a whirlwind sightseeing tour of DC. It turned out to be a good choice because today it was about 92 in the shade!

Made it to all the normal places.

The best was probably the little known FDR memorial. It is located between the Jefferson Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial along the Tidal Basin. It is four distinct areas, each depicting each of his 4-year terms. He is and will be the only President to serve 4 terms, through the depression and the WWII. This is a must see if visiting Washington.

We did a drive by of the White House, National Cathedral, and down embassy row and through Georgetown.

Again, today the heat just sapped the life out of you, but Shelby took it all in stride.

Wednesday everyone came out to the RV Park and we played in the pool. It was a good thing because today it was 95 in the shade.

All in all this has been a very rewarding seven weeks on the road. Tomorrow morning we head home, with a stop in Savannah to visit with Bill Z and his wife Yvonne.

This is the last report for our Spring 2007 trip. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!! :) :)

Nice job on your travel blog Kathy! Perhaps during the time between now and your next "blog-worthy" trip, you can teach Dennis to do some of the work! You can make a case for the "travel" blog to come under "transportation" in ST&S.
