The tree lined street provided welcome shade for part of our walk. We had parked our car about three blocks away, having seen that many of the main roads we usually take into the city were blocked off because of a marathon.
Various sights seen, the Amtrak train approaching and walking under the bridge as it thundered over us. Other modes of transport, like these neat looking motorcycles.
Two of the buildings we passed by were The Department of Health and Human Resources, and The Voice of America.
Gregg knows where he is going and I am glad to see the sign he pointed out, showing me that we were on the right track.
Below in the top photo is the Air and Space Museum and in the one below it shows part of the American Indian Museum, with the dome of the Capitol clearly seen above the tree tops.
but another way is the DC Ducks. If it was this hot next time we were in the city, we thought we might treat ourselves to a ride. With these you can even go into the Potomac River to see the sites from the 'boat'.
This is a statue of Ulysses S. Grant at the memorial of the same name. It isn't too far away from the Capitol Building. You can read about the Memorial here.
One of Gregg's Father's Day treats was to get a hot dog from a street vendor. This is one of the things he enjoys during his lunch hour whenever he has to work in the city. However, he thought it was just too hot to eat outside, and so suggested we eat lunch at the American Indian Museum. I jumped at that as I am not a big hot dog fan. Instead of eating a 'dog' he took a picture of one on the side of the van.
These last two are of the baseball stadium on our way out of the city. We're going to go to a game here one of these days.
Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Louise and Sylvia for hosting My World.
