Washington DC, Day 7, Oct 26, 2011

With rain forecast for tomorrow, we wanted to do some more outside sightseeing. First off, see the Jefferson Memorial.

From the Jefferson Memorial, the Washington Monument and the Capital. To see the White House, look left of the Washington Monument where the V is in the tree line.

We walked up to the WW II Memorial to get the National Park Service Passport book stamp and saw many folks escorting our WWII Veterans. I believe they were with the group called Honor Flight. Bob’s Dad who served in the engine room of a Navy ship during the second world war would definitely have enjoyed seeing this memorial, unfortunately he died at the age of 62 in 1982.

I did find the jackpot for NPS stamps, after stamping a page or two, I did find a special area for the National Capital Region.

With an 80% chance of rain forecast for tomorrow, I am looking forward to a day of rest!!

Somehow in three years in DC, I never got to the supreme court building. You are having a really good visit!

Just caught up on your DC posts ... looks like the nation's capital is treating you right as far as the weather goes. My boss is a volunteer for the Honor Flight; she says it is extremely rewarding to be involved in these events.

Glad to see you're taking a day off. DC can really tire you out with so much to see in a short time.

The best part is so much of it is free!
