Washington, D.C. - Day #1


Whew!  We spent the day viewing as many national monuments as our "50-something" bodies could handle.

We visited the:
-Washington Monument (we rode the elevator to the viewing windows at the top of the monument)
-Lincoln Memorial
-World War II Memorial
-Vietnam Veterans Memorial (including the original Memorial Wall, as well as the "Three Soldiers" statue, and the "Vietnam Women's Memorial" statue).
-Korean War Veterans Memorial
-Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial
-Jefferson Memorial

Each of the memorials is so unique, majestic, and awe-inspiring...they are each breathtaking in their own way.   All three of the war memorials are very impressive in representing the individual and collective sacrifice of so many soldiers (men and women) who served our country.  Sandi and I both agree that the "Korean War Memorial" is the most unique and moving.

I have included more photos than usual for this day's blog entry...just couldn't help myself.

Take care.
Don & Sandi
