Where I stayed
We bought tickets for a tour where you can hop on and off, and had three different loops of Washington. We got off at Lincoln's Memorial and joined the next loop which took us to Arlington Cemetery. Unfortunately we couldn't see much, but decided that time was at the essence, so just stayed on the bus and looped back to Lincoln, which is what I really wanted to see. We had the required photos and then ambled down the reflecting pools to the Washington Memorial which is the needle thing!
With it being memorial weekend, there are thousands upon thousands of motor bikes here, all vets who are called the Rolling Thunder. They have the most enormous Harley Davidsons that you have ever seen, and they will roll through the streets of Washington tomorrow in a parade
Ash has been a bit grumps today as she is tired, and her ankle is hurting, so we have come back to the hotel and will have an early night. We feel memorialed out ... so don't feel cheated on seeing anything.
We have spent all day walking around looking at the sights, or else on the bus have guided tours, so it has been excellent.
