I've hit the road again headed north on my way to Washington DC. This was my planned week off to see all the sights and visit alot of Museums. Did you know they are all free! Its amazing~ So be prepared I have tons of works I'll be posting pictures of...I just couldn’t help myself and have to share all that I saw.
Check out those prices... $18 and hour??? I'm definitely in DC and will park outside the city and take the metro in. Yikes!
So I made it to see the White House and thank goodness for zoom lenses on the camera... Because they have us soooo faraway is ridiculous! So I walked all around DC my first day to see what I could see. It was a beautiful day as it sprinkled on and off and then the skies opened up showing off this brilliant blue sky with fluffy white clouds.

There was these two ducks leading all these little ducklings out of the reflecting pool up the banks. They stole the spotlight for some time!
Lovely Lincoln! And check out the surrounding walls and ceiling~ stunning
The crowd was steady throughout the afternoon.
What an amazing view and gorgeous skies! My time here with Lincoln was very powerful. The presence of the structure and sculpture is encompassing.
The columns and the ceiling was so impressive and just illuminated the place beautifully.
This was the Blue group of Veterans. Many who had travelled together with a group of 400 service men and women total.
The beauty is in the Details~

The Vietnam Memorial was more powerful than I ever imagined and you have to experience it in person to truly feel the impact.
Einstein sat tall and proud~ large sculpture has such presence~
Gotta have a Metro shot... and below is a stairway to...???
Iwo Jima was Awesome.
Around town, some interesting sights.
Segway Tours are all over as they zip by you listening through headphone as the tour guide describes the city's sights.
