Whirlwind Tour of Washington DC...

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a one-day seminar in Washington, DC.  Unfortunately I had only planned for a half day of touring, but by the time I arrived, after flight cancellations and other delays, my half day turned into a couple of hours - in the rain. 

Oh well, I made the best of it and powered on.  My hotel was within a 5 minute walk to the White House, so that was my first stop.

J came along for the trip and spent the following day touring around while I was attending the seminar.  Maybe he'll share some of his photos with me so I can share with you.

The highlight of my trip (besides all of the sailors at the Naval Memorial) - I saw the Presidential Motorcade -sirens, secret service men, dark glasses, black SUVs and all.  Very exciting!

One day certainly is not enough time to see everything DC has to offer.  J and I can hardly wait to go back.

Did you happen to see that Denny's I saw when I was there a while back?

My friend was there at a conference last week as well.

Can you imagine how Lincoln would feel if he knew they were selling tickets to see where he was shot?
