Washington DC, Day 12, Oct 31, 2011

Yes, we were catching the 6:15 am bus from the RV Park.


Now you may ask, why?  Well Bob wanted to see if we could attend the Supreme Court’s oral arguments today.  That means we had to obtain a numbered ticket, and then wait about two hours to see if our number would get us in.  Admittance is on a first come first serve basis.  With our numbers 56 & 57 which we received at 7:25 am, we did get in to hear the two cases presented today.  If you want to read what we heard, check out this link.  Bob had a better seat than I did, I was behind a 3’ diameter pillar, was able to see a few of the Justices, and was able to hear everything.


While we waited until around 9 am, we walked around, saw the sun finish rising with its glow on the capitol.


At noon the Court arguments were over, so off we head to the Air and Space Museum.

Here Bob is lounging next to the Wright Brothers first airplane.


Here is some original fabric from the Wright Brother's’ plane.


The Able Experiment.  Read about it here.


Another great day in DC.

WOW! After reading both yours and Bob's posts today I can say I am WAY BEYOND jealous! What an experience! I didn't even know it was possible to sit in on the Supreme Court. And I would have loved to watch the early morning sun on the buildings like you did. A day to remember, for sure!
