Washington, D.C.: Day 6

Our final day in the nation’s capitol, and we indeed slept in! Today I toured a New Urbanist project in Rockville, Maryland called Rockville Town Square, a part of the larger, mixed-use Rockville Town Center redevelopment. During that time, Billie took the girls to the National Geographic Society Explorer’s Hall, which they said was awesome, […]

Washington, D.C.: Day 5

We’re up dark and early tomorrow (Day 7) for our return trip, so the captions will be minimal. Today, we toured the White House (no photos), then went to the National Aquarium and Zoo (Juliet’s better, so joined us for the latter two). In the evening, my older brother Miles and I spent five hours […]

Washington, D.C.: Day 4

With our younger daughter still under the weather, and my tootsies soar, we lounged this morning, and then my older daughter and I went to the U.S. Botanical Gardens. The National Gardens—if you’re near the Capitol and have an hour or more to spare—is a must-visit: But first we had to visit the restaurant we […]

Washington, D.C.: Day 3

The word of our third day, as it began and certainly by the end, is exhausted. We’re having a great time, definitely, but are worn out. And our youngest, poor thing, caught a stomach virus or such and is out of order in the hotel. But on to the overload of photos, for today we […]

Washington, D.C.: Day 2

The word of the day is muggy. Whew! We’ve got heat in the southern Arizona desert—it’ll be about 106 over the next three days—but 94 and high humidity seems exponentially worse. Regardless, we had a great if not exhausting time working our way through many Smithsonian and other museums along the Mall, beginning with Air […]

Washington, D.C.: Day 1

Our first full day in Washington, DC was spent, in the morning, on a tour bus, and in the afternoon, at the International Spy Museum. Both were very good: On the bus, I sat next to my youngest, who titles this photograph, “Self-Portrait, an Accidental Digital Closeup.” Man, I just adore those freckles! We started […]
