riverwalking


Looking across the Potomac, from a bridge on the multiuse (walking, running, biking, skating, dog-walking, baby-stroller-ing, wheelchair-ing, etc) Mount Vernon Trail. From left to right, the Capitol Building (Congress), the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial on the National Mall.

Amazing photography. So many treasures in your city. I was only there once and was impressed.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments about Dad's clock.

The river looks to be quite full.

oldmanlincoln--Thanks, it's amazing how many of them I didn't know about until I started this. Always a pleasure to visit your blog!

chuckeroon--Glad to stop by! It's amazing what a small world it is, once you start looking for connections, isn't it? You'll see me again, never doubt it. :)

ackworth born--This pic was taken near high tide, so the river's deceptively full. This part of the Potomac is all tidal river, so the water level fluctuates a great deal during the day. I think it's running somewhere around medium level at the moment.
