We began our visit to D.C. with a visit to the Washington National Cathedral. Reminiscent of the grand cathedrals of Europe; high arched stone walls, stained glass windows depicting the life of Christ, and a window of space created with the Apollo 11 in mind. Long hallways with alcoves off to the sides, altars and apses, and pews with such historical names as Samuel Adams, Emily Dickinson, or Edgar Allan Poe…an endless sea of history. The following day we spent walking the National Mall taking in the sights of monuments I had only read about and could now see and touch, a surreal day. Hopefully you can get a sense of being there through these few pictures.
Published by Along the Way: life begins at home yet our door is forever open to adventure, new places and new people. Welcome to our travels around the world.
This blog is really about us, my husband Rick and I and our travels. We are retired with grown children and two granddaughters. We travel...exhilarating in new experiences and places and all that each day holds. We believe that life begins to fade once we fail to live into it anymore. So come along the way with us and enjoy the journey too! View more posts
