A Warning for all the Summer Challenge Members Headed to DC

Thursday, June 30, 2011

I got to Washington, DC yesterday, Wednesday. Now I find it necessary to warn all of you of several things. Bring your most comfortable walking shoes as you will walk, walk, walk. Yeah, we learned to travel on the Metro but had to do lots of walking from the station to places we wanted to see.
We probably did the most walking at the zoo and were disappointed because we saw very few animals. Wanted to see the lion cubs they advertise, but never saw any lions or tigers. Our 12 year old granddaughter was very disappointed.
Tomorrow we take an all day bus tour, so that won't be so exhausting.
Tell me about your experiences when you get here.

    The DC Metro area had been my home from 1958 - 2009. I still haven't gone through all 19 museums of the Smithsonian! I have been to some research centers and a couple of the warehouses of the National Museum of the American Indian. You have to spend time at some of them. A great place to visit but...
Enjoy your time.

    My DD just took a trip to DC and came back thoroughly exhausted and with very tired feet!
