More bikers. It was very cool to see them riding around. Everyone was snapping photos with their phones (and cameras).

So there were all these roses put out at the National World War II Memorial, paying tribute to all of the people who sacrificed their lives.

Ye and I at The Jefferson Memorial. First time I remember going, ever and I'm a native.... I'm sure I went when I was younger, but don't remember. So, it doesn't count!

Bringing my bike on the train. Not actually as bad as I thought. If only I could have sat down. I was so zapped of energy.

So our excuse was we did all the exercise and now it was time to end things with lots of food.  $4 happy hour from 5-8PM everyday. Seriously, the BEST happy hour in NW.
