D.C. d2

Alright so here we are I finally can write day number 15 and say I have just two more days to go. I am I. Washington D.C. the capital of our great nation. Its a very cool city very well organized easy to get around and there is just so much to see! We began the day with buffet style breakfast at the Harrington then our first stop was to the white house complex. Now I say complex because the white house is not a single building it is a group of buildings.

These are just two.
Right across from the white house mansion is Lafayette park named after the french Marquis who was like a son to Washington.

So I have a lot of pictures that I will either post later or just make a slideshow out of em, anyway, I  first have to say I can’t wait to see everyone soon! So where to start….Jamestown probably.
Alright we stayed in historic Williamsburg, and from there we began the day with breakfast. But not just any breakfast…oh no…a real southern breakfast! I had grits and biscuits and um a western omlette. Okay  so Jamestown was cool not what I expected but still cool. Lots of artifacts and they actually just added an exhibit on discoveries of cannibalism which was fascinating, disgusting but still fascinating. Okay after Jamestown we stopped in at a glass blowing houre to watch how glass is hand blown and crafted. And the we went to Yorktown for a brief
Tour of the battlefield well actually since Yorktown was a siege it would be more appropriate to say siege lines. Finally we arrived in D.C. in the afternoon. We did a night walk and saw quite a few of the most famous monuments including Lincoln’s memorial Washington monument and almost all of the war memorials. We also ate at this fantastic microbrewery. It was called capitol brewery I believe. Great day.

So I will tell you right now you can buy some cool stuff in Williamsburg. Anyway the number one thing that we saw has to be the armory. I only posted one of like 10 pictures I took in the armory.

DAY 12. Charlottesville

Alright ya’ll so I have to give props to old Thomas Jefferson. That man can not only write a legendary historical document but he has a real eye for architecture. Long story short his home is gorgeous!
