365 Things To Smile About Day 7. A Stroll Around the Tidal Basin
Today I headed into DC for the afternoon on my own to get reacquainted with my favorite city. My plan was to go to a museum but I somehow found myself fallowing signs to the water front and ended up at the tidal basin.
It was beautiful out so I started walking around to the Jefferson Memorial! It was a warm but very nice day and I loved strolling along the water and under trees. I sat on the memorial steps for a bit and then went inside. It is really quite beautiful and impressive there!
After a time I went downstairs and was browsing the shop when we were told we had to leave due to smoke from a busted hand dryer! It was quite something to watch the fire trucks drive around the basin, and one even drove up in front of the memorial! A little over kill but nice to know our monuments are looked after:)
The walk back to the metro was tiring but just as picturesque and the whole outing very much something to smile over:)
