It seems impossible that when last in DC we had 90 degree weather almost the entire 17 days of our October 2007 visit. This year, same month, we waited days for it to stop pouring so we could take walks around the city and take in the sights.
Our fist stop was for Sunday brunch at the Old Ebbitt Grill. To my surprise, brunch was reasonably priced; that is, until I noticed the $6.50 charged for a cup of coffee! Still, I would go back, skip the coffee, and it made a terrific start to a busy day.
DC has got to be the most beautiful city in America. The buildings and monuments, artwork and skylines never disappoint and we never tire of seeing them. The following pictures are a few taken from the art collection inside one of the Smithsonian buildings.
The following picture is a magnificent piece by a Nevada City, CA artist, whom I have never met. This is where I lived for many years, and my son and his girls still call home.
Leaving the museum, we find these interesting sights.
We return to Ford's Theater, closed for restoration on our last visit, but no tickets are available for today. We do, however, go across the street and visit the house where Lincoln died.
Resuming our walking tour, this is what we see on our return to Union Station.
Tomorrow we return to DC to visit the monuments!
