Day 21 JEST Evening

It has rained 9 days in a row. We have only been here two days and have been able to see 3 of the 19 Smithsonian Museums, took a nice long stroll down King street in Alexandria and today visited the Natural History Museum and took a 40 site bus tour of DC and the Arlington Cemetery. We stood in the rain to watch the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was very moving. An evening seafood snack and back to the B&B. It has been storming for about the last hour or so and the thunder is rolling for 20-30 seconds at a time.

Tomorrow morning we will be heading out of Alexandria and back to the same cabin in the woods that we stayed in on Sunday night. After all of this walking we are looking forward to the jacuzzi tub. My calves are killing me. James' knee isn't faring too well either. Ibuprofen for us tonight. We will stop at Washington's home, Mt Vernon, on our way out tomorrow. They are predicting rain again.

It's getting late so I will try to download some pictures tomorrow. Good night...
