Washington, D.C.


I spent four days in the Washington, D.C. area and it was not enough.  I can't believe that I missed the Library of Congress.  As a book worm, that should have been the first thing I saw.  No, nix that, the National Air & Space Museum was and still is my number one choice followed by the Smithsonian.  I will need to go back and catch the things that I missed.  There are other nice pictures of famous monuments, museums, buildings, etc. that are not shown because, as the old saying goes, it had been done before.  Same thing could be said about some of these pictures but I have to show something for the amount of walking I did.  There are a couple rolls of film that went MIA somewhere as well.  One thing of note is that there may be a lot of military personnel in the D.C. area but I couldn't help but notice all the young men and women who looked like kids playing soldier in their uniforms.  They were that young.  God bless each and every one of them.  May He watch over them and bring them safely home.
