Thursday, we were in Silver Spring, Maryland. The story began much like the last time I was in DC: I wandered around for at least an hour looking for someplace to park. The most important difference, I think, is that it wasn’t an issue of paying for parking, but figuring out how to get to the parking area.
I was trying to get to the Theodore Roosevelt Island National Memorial. The directions are pretty much useless for someone who is not familiar with the area. My GPS didn’t know where I wanted to go, so I had to drive and try to navigate (that didn’t work very well). I ended up touring Northern Virginia/DC blocks again. That didn’t make me very happy.
Once I finally arrived, it was nice to leave this:
I walked around for a little while and saw this

Not long after that, Tony wrote and said he was ready to head to Aunt Jane’s house. I suppose the advantage of not having a lot of time in any of the places I went was that I didn’t have time to get bored.
There are more pictures here.
