In early December 2005 we visited DC. Robin had been there a few years before for an ANA convention. It was the week after Thanksgiving so the crowds were light. (Photos)
We road the Metro (subway) and the city bus. Visited the Smithsonian Castle, the Washington Monument, the Capitol, Fords Theater, Arlington National Cemetary. Watched a movie at the Library of Congress. Toured Mount Vernon. Saw the new Air and Space museum. Walked to the Jefferson Memorial at night.
Our family visited in early 1960s. My dad took a picture of my brother and I holding up the Washington Monument. We tried to recreate that shot in 2005.
