It was so humbling to be here.
Especially to feel the reverence and respect.

Arlington was sobering.
The history of this place.....

Words fail me.
I feel so blessed to have been able to witness this.


Saturday morning we rode the train into Union Station and spent the day being tourists.

I have never been to Washington D.C. and the thing I really wanted to see was the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

I was not disappointed in it at all.

But before we got there, we enjoyed just "being" in such a busy, historic and beautiful place.
 Our train brought us to Union Station.
 View of the Washington Monument from the Lincoln Memorial.

 Vietnam Veteran's Memorial
 So very sobering, so many lost.
 There are so many that gave "their all."

 Such a great walk to see this enormous monument.
The architecture was so beautiful everywhere.

 Hey! Why don't we put THIS GUY in the White House??? I think he would do a fabulous job!

Yesterday I flew from Idaho Falls to Baltimore to spend the weekend with Howie.
He's in Pennsylvania for two weeks. 

Today I had the rental car and I played tourist. 

I started at Antietam. 
Bloodiest one day battle of the Civil War. 

The countryside is lush and beautiful. 

Then I went to a Pennsylvania Dutch market. 
What a blast.
I saw an Amish girl with flip flops. 
They were bejewled. 
Sorta edgy isn't it?

Then I went on to Gettysburg. 
Very humbling. 
It's been such a great day.
