More dispatches from inside the Beltway

Today in Washington. I have absolutely no idea what's going on in the nation's capital even tho I'm in the middle of it. I have succeeded in avoiding the news, which is probably not a bad thing.

This morning, waiting in line for tickets to go up to the top of the Washington Monument:

Our tickets are for 4:00.

At the WWII memorial: (someone was being goofy)

This duck was protecting her duckling and quacked at us as we walked past. (along the reflecting pool between the WWII memorial and the Lincoln memorial)

And here's the Lincoln memorial. And a kidlet who's continuing to be goofy.

Oh yeah, some guy from Texas lives here:

(I was instructed to make a goofy face for the above picture)

We also went to the National Aquarium and the National Air and Space Museum but didn't take pictures. My enthusiasm for taking pictures was waning considerably by the time we got to the National Air and Space Museum. It's hot again today.

Here are some more pictures from the National Zoo:
