Rick's Road Trip Thurs Oct 9

Next Day


Thurs: In Washington DC. Todays schedule included the Washington Monument, the White House, The Vietnam Veterens Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Korea Veterens Memorial, the FDR Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial.
I metroed to the National mall. Is metroed even a word?? Got a ticket for the Washington Memorial for the afternoon. Walked to the White House and all of the others on my list. Not much to say that the photos don't show. Everything is huge. By the end of the day, my legs, feet and actually my whole body had enough walking. But there was a last minute addition to my list of places to visit. The International Spy Museum. Unfortunely there were no tickets left by the time I got there. But all was not lost. Just across the street was the Gordon Biersch restaurant and bar. Had several very tasty dark beers that were on tap. Managed to find the metro to Arlington.
Tomorrow's plan: On the road to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
