We are on vacation in Washington, DC. We took both of our mothers, so seven of us piled in a rented suburban and drove. Our first stop was eastern Kentucky to pick up Beth’s Mom. From there, we took the northern route through West Virginia and Maryland. I must say, the drive exceeded my high expectations with fall foliage, and beautiful mountain views. I expected West Virginia to be beautiful, but I was shocked and delighted by western Maryland. What a gorgeous state Maryland is!
Our first day in Washington, DC, included a visit to The National Museum of American History, The National Museum of Natural History, The National Archives, The Lincoln Memorial, The Vietnam Memorial and The WWII Memorial. If these visits don’t evoke patriotism, nothing will! We truly live in a special country!
