Washington D.C. done!
Then we visited the Capitol. Beautiful building where Congress meets. Took most of the afternoon to visit it all. At the end, we were too tired to go see anything else. headed back to our RV and ha dour first meal!
The night went well until the heating stopped working. IT's about 0 degrees celsius outside so no time to loose heating! The battery was dead. Thank God for the generator! It was close to morning so we started our day early. Today we went to see the Washington Monument (the Obelisk). We went all the way up the 555ft to get a gorgeous view of the city. I'm sure we spotted Obama. Everyone looked like ants from up there, it was hard to tell!!
Then we went to see the Lincoln Memorial, you know the huge statue of Abraham Lincoln, the one where he sits on a chair and overlooks everything. Very impressive. You never think it could be that big until you see it with your own eyes. Walked around the White House. Forget about getting anywhere remotely close to it. In the afternoon we went to the Natural History Museum. Saw dinosaurs, stuffed wild animals and beautiful gems and stones. All pooped out, the three of us headed back home. Now it's supper time. Tortelinni alfredo it is!
