The day after Ken's memorial at Arlington was set aside by the family to play tourist. We split up to see the sights and museums. Bill and I had been in DC several times before and felt like we knew our way around. Doug, David and the granddaughters had never been to the Nation's capital so it all a grand adventure.
The first adventure was the Metro subway. No biggie for me but the girls found it intimidating in someways. San Diego doesn't have subways.
The Washington Monument was closed to anyone wanting to climb it because of earthquake damage. There were lots of signs explaining the damage and the plans for repairs.
