My wonderful husband took me to DC with him (November) ...he worked - I played. I walked from our hotel to see so many amazing things....Somehow with very little planning or charting of my path....my days fell into place and I seemed to find wonderful things around every corner. I never felt concerned for my safety as I strolled the city. I did feel that I might get turned around and loose myself. But I found that if I always knew where the Washington Monument was...I could always find my way home...that is back to the hotel. The art work of course was one of my favorite finds. I could not believe my eyes at all that I was privileged to see....nor the fact that I could take pictures in the National Art Gallery.
My next favorite in the big city was the American History Museum...and Julia Child's Kitchen. I remember fondly....watching Julia Child on PBS with my Mom when I was just in grade school. She was half Chef...half comedian it seemed to me at that age!
|I love the green!! My favorite color.|
I also enjoyed seeing the First Ladies' china patterns...I love dishes, too much really for they always call out to me at the thrift stores or garage sales.
|More First Lady china....I think maybe Mrs Johnson's???|
The White House
|One of the security guards|
|And...butterflies in the Natural History Museum!|
