Yesterday we went down to the National Mall to re-acquaint Princess SJ with the monuments.
The US Capitol is such an imposing building – the size always surprises me.
The distance from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial is 2 miles – this is the furthest Princess SJ has walked since being here! You have to walk past the Washington Monument first ….. though this photo is actually taken from the Lincoln Memorial looking back to the Capitol as I don't seem to have taken a photo from the beginning of our "trek".
Then there is the WW2 Memorial which most people think took too long in coming. I find this a very tranquil and pleasant memorial.
This is from one of the reliefs around the memorial – my favourite as it celebrates the end of the war.
At last we are at the Lincoln – "we don't have to climb the steps do we" she asks…..
"What do you mean we have to walk all the way back there?" ……………………….
