Washington D.C. Part 3

Having walked over thirty miles by this point in our trip, The Man and I were ready for a vacation from our vacation!  On Thursday morning, we rolled our aching bodies out of bed early for a busy final full day.  After breakfast, we took the Metro five stops to Capitol South where we walked another few blocks to the U.S. Capitol building.  We didn't have a planned stop here, but since we found an hour of extra time, we squeezed in this stop.

Washington D.C. Part 2

After a brutal 10+ mile day on Sunday and some serious jet lag, The Man and I eased our way into the week on Monday.  We slept late, finally getting to breakfast around 10:00am.  I patched up my blistered toe the best that I could with my travel first aid kit, but it hurt terribly.

After breakfast, we walked down to the National Mall again and began our sightseeing at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.  Of all of the places I was so excited to see, this was probably the biggest let-down.
