The first thing I did was drive into Washington and check into the JW Marriott Hotel.
This is a four star hotel conveniently located on Pennsylvania Avenue
just a couple blocks from the White House.




After getting settled in my accomodations I set out on a walking tour of Washington D.C.


My first stop was the World War II Memorial.
This beautiful memorial was not here the last time I was in Washington.


It was a fairly nice Saturday afternoon, a little hazy, temps in the mid eighties.
This is looking east across the memorial toward the Washington Monument.


Walking west down the mall from the WWII Memorial, the next stop is the Lincoln Memorial.


My favorite memorial honors our nation's sixteenth president.
