Going Downtown

Blue Bubun went downtown to see the sights!

 The Washington Monument, now repaired after the earthquake

World War II memorial

The Lincoln Memorial was quite popular

 Reflecting pool

 Korean War memorial

A smaller memorial tucked away on the side of the reflecting pool that honors the DC residents that served in World War I

 The Jefferson memorial on the other side of the tidal basin.

 This pool on the side of a memorial to John Paul Jones was tempting on a hot day

 The Smithsonian "castle" - too bad it is just offices!

 Looking up into Needle Tower (Kenneth Snelson), a sculpture made entirely of tubes and cables under tension

 Checking out the Hirshhorn and sunken sculpture garden, including a Wish Tree by Yoko Ono

And the White House, glimpsed through the fence
