... boring to list any more.

We are very pleased to have made the effort to visit Washington, which is truly impressive and has so much about its history. We are now waiting at Union Station for the 3 hour trip home - it was to leave at 7:00 pm, but is now over 90 minutes late and no indication of when it might leave ... This has given us time to write this blog, but think tomorrow might start with a sleep-in!

I went straight to the national mall to try to catch the tail end of the events for the 50th anniversary of the march on Washington. They had security set up outside the WWII memorial and i didn't want to mess with bringing my bike in line only to have them say I couldn't bring it.

... to take in the city during the Memorial Day weekend. Obviously, visiting these monuments during Memorial Day weekend has a certain amount of special significance to it and we felt privileged to share the area with so many ex and current armed forces members. The monuments in Washington are very impressive to look at as is the amount of museums.
