Day 20 (Monday 31 May) Washington

Last day in Washington. It was really hot today! We opted for a bus tour and went to Mount Vernon (George Washington’s home – what a lovely location), the town of Old Alexandria and visited Arlington cemetery (again). As today was a public holiday for Memorial Day there were a lot of people at Arlington. This time we saw the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier. The precision was impressive especially considering how hot it was.

We went back to Abraham Lincoln’s memorial and a few others as well. All in all a good day. We are now in the process of packing as we leave for LA in the morning – another packing exercise which should again prove an interesting challenge!!! More tomorrow from LA. N&W
