We did a "whirlwind" visit to the Chesapeake Bay to see some friends; eat some crabs, etc. On the way back, drove through Wash. D.C. so the teen and preteen could see some of it. Visited with Abe, tried to walk the Vietnam Memorial; couldn't, and that is enough of that.
Washington, D.C., our nations town, is worth a visit; walked around the Memorial, inside the pillars.
Above, a photo of The Arlington Memorial Bridge, and in the distance, Arlington House, the once home of Robert E. Lee; now surrounded by Arlington National Cemetery.
