Tuckered Out

This was our last day touring Washington, D.C..  We headed downtown for the sites I had picked.  (Yesterday was devoted to The Bearded One’s picks.)

We took the bus and subway to the center of the city, at least the National Mall area.  May I say that the mass transportation system in this town is wonderful!  It is clean, it is on time, it is easy to use.  I am from small town midwest and I could feel confident in moving about from the beginning.

We went to the Smithsonian National History Museum.  The first thing I wanted to see is Julia Child’s kitchen.  It is wonderful.  Not fancy (no granite countertops for her) but SO efficient.  I loved it!  She could have functioned in a camper kitchen too!

We saw many things:  the ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz, the original Kermit the Frog, gowns of the First Ladies, the Star Spangled Banner (huge!), and so much more.

After the museum, The Bearded One was all walked out so he sat on a wall and enjoyed himself while I hike to the Washington Monument, a view of The White House, the WWII monument and the Vietnam Wall where I located the name of the husband of one of my good friends.  It was a great experience but a long walk so The Bearded One had made a good call in staying on the wall.

Then we returned to the camper and the cats satisfied that we had done the tourist thing well in the last two days.

For dinner, we had Baked Shrimp Scampi along with some fine spaghetti with a bit of olive oil.  It was a great recipe!  I recommend it…and quick!
