A very tired Stagg after "riding the dog". We were able to hook up with my Brother in law, who is a national reporter for CBC and working here this week. We have had a great time so far!
View outside our hotel room...that is the Potamac River in the distance near trees and bridge.
Thats Stagg walking near a really awesome sculpture in the National Museum...it is made out of coat hangers, the kind you get from dry cleaners!
Stagg, and my brother in law, Greg inside the Jefferson Memorial...
Stagg and Greg on the steps of the Washington Memorial. It is really beautiful. I didn't think anything could compete with the Vietnam Memorial or the Lincoln Memorial, but this was beautiful. It is set on a tidal basin.
Question what is the tidal basin in Washington D.C. is it like a brine? Is it from the ocean?
Also...last night I really really wanted to go to the Watergate Hotel for a drink. We walked all around the site, and it is super cool design. As we approached the bar...there several window tinted security style SUVs. Four secret service agents were standing outside the bar entrance. Inside a conference room with a glass door were a dozen "suits". We wondered...who was in there? I will send a small painting to the visitor who guesses who I saw at the Watergate last night...
