Last Saturday we headed into DC for the first time after getting to the East coast. Because we live near and figure it was the first of many trips we didn't take on much but mostly just did the History museum. But first we headed to Georgetown because I had heard this mansion had the gardens open to the public for free that weekend so we checked it out. They were nice but we were glad to have done them for free.
We loved the streets in Georgetown, and the architecture and buildings, it was nice just to walk through the neighborhoods.
We drove by the FBI building, so had to snap a picture!
Brian was pulled from the crowd to participate in a "sit in" just like black students did at this soda counter in 1960, it was a "white counter" and they were asked to leave and just kept sitting there to make a point.
Right from Judy Garlands food, they should be silver as per the book, movies get everything wrong!
Right off Honest Abe's head the last night of his life, he wore it to the theater that night, we also decided that Brian is the same body type, height etc and Abe and I as his wife, funny huh!
We both loved this piece of WWII propaganda. I guess now when we ride alone you ride with oil tycoons who are destroying the planet or something, maybe they should bring the poster back.
The things we now call "history" I am feeling old!
Julia Child's kitchen! She has everything labeled, it said so people who working in her kitchen with her knew where to put things away, not a bad idea really.
C3PO from Stay Wars! may was that guy skinny!
And that was our day, it was over 90 so we will do the outdoor stuff in the fall when its cooler and nice to walk outside.
We are going on vacation for the next few weeks so I will try to post some of the trip but it might be a while.
