|This is the view from in front of the Lincoln Memorial. The Reflecting Pool has been shut down since last October, and it will hopefully reopen soon! Evidently there was a crack in the stone below the pool or something like that.|
We were lucky enough to run into kind people who didn't mind taking pictures of us or that even offered when they saw the lengths we were going to to get a decent picture!
After we raced up the steps to the Lincoln (my long legs have the advantage but Becca did say skipping steps was not allowed, so I think I lost), we jogged over to the Korean War Memorial.
his new espresso machine and proceeded to the address I gave him. Unfortunately, the GPS (which seriously needs its maps updated) took him to South EAST instead of South WEST. I got a call from him asking him what I was doing in that part of the city and how I'd gotten there! Haha I guess Becca and I didn't seem hard core enough to have run all the way over there :) He was right!
Since Becca and I had some extra time to due to the direction confusion, we sat by the Tidal Basin that the Jefferson Memorial overlooks. This is absolutely breathtaking during the spring and the Cherry Blossom Festival... or so I have heard. I wouldn't actually know because I was studying last year and didn't get to go. :/ Maybe this year!
