For the few of you who read this blog, you were advised of our 10th anniversary celebration trip, this August. We had planned on taking a huge trip to the UK and Ireland. Well, due to some unforeseen circumstances, we had to change that trip a bit.
We swapped the green, rolling hills of my ancestors for the history-making monuments of my forefathers. We’ll be enjoying the wonderful Washington DC area. I’ve been there a couple of times, and loved it. Deanna will be visiting DC for the first time.
We’re both lovers of American History, and the building blocks of our republic. We’re planning on hitting all the major locations, right in DC, off the National Mall. If we have time I want to travel just outside the city and see a few more locations, like Ford Theater.
Do you have any suggestions? Have you been there and seen some off-the-beaten-path locations? Suggest away!
Oh, and we’ll be photowalking with the local photowalkers too! I’ve helped organize a fun dusk to evening photowalk, on the Mall. My hope is to be able to capture a beautiful sunset, then wander around and shoot all the well lit highlights. How can I leave DC, without a night shot of the Capitol?
