Washington, D.C. 2019 {Day 3}

Sunday was our last day in D.C.  Since we had cancelled our breakfast reservations the night before, we went to a little place down the street from our hotel called Bread and Chocolate.  Sunday was really a nasty weather day.  It was suppose to rain/sleet/snow, and we did in fact see all three, thought it was mostly rain.  
We had timed passes for 11:00 at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.  I had been to this museum, but it had been over 20 years before.

Washington, D.C. 2019 {Day Two}

Lincoln's view
Next stop was the Korean War Veterans Memorial
Then we walked to one of my top 3 favorite memorials/monuments, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial

Next was probably what is my favorite, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial... I always say this, but I just adore that Fala got his own statue...


We walked along the Tidal Basin (some of which was actually under water) around to the final of my 3 favorites... the Thomas Jefferson Memorial.
