Back from DC






















I've been gone awhile -- I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted -- and I said I was going to do better. We have been to DC to see Jennifer and Alan. I've posted a few photos. We did some things that we haven't done before -- we went to the Kennedy Center and saw a concert, went to Wolftrap to see a show, and we went to the Capitol Visitors Center. I've tried to go there a couple of times and didn't make it. We had a nice visit.
The first photo was taken from the old Post Office in downtown DC. We had a beautiful morning with clear skies. Then two from the Kennedy Center, Alan and Jennifer at the Eastern Market on Capitol Hill, Ralph and I at the Visitor's Center and the last photo taken on the Washington monument as we were paddle boating in the Tidal Basin. Thanks to Jennifer and Alan for their hosptality.
I did o.k on the trip. Crossing the streets in large cities is a problem for me but I always had someone with me. And, we had a harrowing experience getting to the airport in time for our flight -- 10 more minutes and we would have missed it. Then on the way back we had our planed delayed four hours. It is always something traveling these days isn't it?
We returned to hot hot weather here in the south. We played golf this morning and I don't know what I was thinking!!! I guess I wasn't -- my concentration was pretty poor and I did awful. And, it was really too hot to play......but like idiots we did.

Looks like a wonderful visit. Glad you had a great time and got to see a lot of things you had missed previously.
