|First Division Monument|
|Washington Memorial from across the Reflecting Pool|
Well, other than that it's really rather wasteful and expensive, but still, beside the fact that I have not one inch of marble anywhere in my house, it's pretty amazing that the streets are curbed in marble.
Once a person gets over that fact (and yes, it takes a while for some of us) it's rather interesting to try to figure out how much marble D.C. actually has.

I could not, of course, that would require way more math than I'm capable of, so we'll move on to the monuments....which are made of, you guessed it, MARBLE.
|World War II Memorial|
I carefully figured out where to get off the Metro (gotta love that system), the walking route and a return with as few steps as possible, and researched some info on each of the memorials.
By the time we arrived at the Lincoln Memorial, we were all done for. There was no more pushing or cajoling kids, nor did the adults want to push, prod or promise anything. We just couldn't deliver.
|Arlington Bridge Equestrian Statues|
Thank goodness we all found a second wind crossing the river. By the time we reached Georgetown, we were ready for a sit-down supper, showers and sleep. Isn't it amazing how well we can sleep even when we're away from home?
