Our walking tour never got us down to the Capitol Building.
|Pretty from a distance|
|Nice steps (that you can't go up)|
|Nice fountain (that wasn't running)|
|Nice side lawn (that you weren't allowed on)|
|Setting sun. Storm clouds.|
|The Scarecrow's hat & boots from the Wizard of Oz|
|Superman's costume from the 1960's TV series with George Reeve (that I watched)|
|The original Muppets, pre-Sesame Street|
|Dorothy's red slippers, Oz again|
|Kermit. Still a God, now in a plastic case|
|Archie Bunker's chair. Bob Dylan's jacket.|
|Abe Lincoln's watch?|
|Harry Potter's cloak|
We also got to Arlington Cemetery. Memorial Day is in 4 days as I write this, so we found American soldiers planting American flags on every one of the 400,000 graves. Every one measured exactly a foot length from the tombstone.
|They meet. Rucksacks are filled with flags. Zones are assigned|
|Note the gentleman in the upper left corner measuring|
|One at every grave|
|With his eternal flame|
|Ted on the left. Bobby on the right.|
At least they're buried in Arlington.
There's the Canadian Cross in Arlington, which has this as its base.
|In honour of US soldiers who served for Canada.|
|The Guard's rifle is inspected before the change|
|Back and forth 21 paces every 21 seconds|
|Middle school kids lay a wreath|
|All they need are poppies|
