Washington D.C. Trip – Day 7

The last full day in DC started out slow, got a late start, completely missing breakfast so I just grabbed some lunch at Union Station and then hopped the Metro over to Arlington National Cemetery. The weather cooperated, for the most part, but it got chilly and windy while I was at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and even sprinkled a little while the changing of the guard was going on. After that I went over to see the JFK memorial and bumped into Robert Kennedy’s memorial on the way. I hadn’t even known that it was there, because the last time I was at Arlington was with my Scout troop, seeing it from a Tourmobile. From the Eternal Flame I went over to the Marine Corps Memorial. While there I took a few photos bracketed to try out some high dynamic range processing. From there I headed over to check out the carillon donated by the Netherlands and then back to the Metro station to get back to the hotel.

Dinner tonight was at Tuscana West and I can’t say enough good about them. The service was excellent, the food was fantastic, the dessert were delicious. If you’re ever in D.C. and want to have some good upscale Italian, please pay them a visit.

The rest of the evening was spent packing for the trip home. I’m ready to get home but still would like to stay a bit longer. There’s so much that I didn’t get to do, but that’s why there will be a next time…
