Visit to Washington D.C.



Arlington National Cemetary


The archway into the cemetary
We visited Arlington, first.
At times sad, at times a little outraged at the clowning around, especially the disrespect from our foreign visitors.

Always Proud to have served with such selfless people who gave so much.

We did not go inside - this trip was a constant juggling of transportation, time, and available walking energy.
We had to be "PlanBDextrous"



Library of Congress






The Reading Room



Supreme Court


No one was home



The Capitol Building


We were not allowed inside, unless we were part of a tour group.



Police with sub-machine guns prevented anyone from getting close.

I took a photo of the neat Sportster Police bike; the officer didn't appear to want his photo taken.
