headed toward.... and looking from the memorial
We could see the White House from the Monument (the crane is working on a building several blocks behind the WH)...
And, finally, the World War II Memorial...

|to honor his Dad, Dave took a picture of his cap which depicts the ship his father served on (USS Mallard) with the State where his father was born & lived at the time|
As you can tell, the sun was setting, so we caught a cab back to the hotel and left the next morning after breakfast...
A quick 2 days, but what a great trip!
Here's to looking forward to a great 2015!
