Washington DC (February 2012)

Last month I was lucky enough to be able to spend a few hours in Washington DC. It was not nearly enough time, and I didn’t step foot into any museums because of the time constraints, but I’m so glad I spent the time to go anyway! I will definitely be going back here one day!

Some pictures ….


Abraham Lincoln Memorial

Looking down from the Lincoln Memorial, across the Reflecting Pool (under construction) to the Washington Monument!

Washington Monument – Still under rehab from the Earthquake last summer

The Capitol Building – this is taken from the base of the Washington Monument, I didn’t take the time to walk down there.

The White House

I also went to Arlington and spent a couple of hours there. Again, not near enough time. It was extremely humbling and to do it properly, you really should plan an entire day there. The Spring would be gorgeous when the trees are in bloom!

Arlington National Cemetery

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – I stayed and watched the Changing of the Guard ceremony – amazing!

The Eternal Flame – John F. Kennedy’s Grave
