Hello From Foggy Bottom

We had a wonderful four days in Washington DC, staying at a very nice hotel at Foggy Bottom. We took an on-off bus tour which allowed us to see the main sights out of the downtown area. We also walked our legs off for 3 days and left the hotel at 9am and walked non-stop until 6pm every day.
We saw the White House and visted most of the Smithsonian Museums as well as the Holocaust Museum. The first photo is of a wood carved grandfather clock at the Renwick gallery. The clock appears to have a dust sheet over it but it's all carved wood and the part which is the dust sheet has been bleached. It was hard to believe that it was all made if wood. The second photo is of a silk weaving at the Renwick Gallery. Then a photo of us on the train, then the beautiful autumn leaves were out on all the trees, which we enjoyed on our long walks.
More to come. Hugs Jan Mac
