Back From Washington, DC - The Fun Stuff

Well, I'm back and mostly recovered from ALA Annual in Washington, DC, held last week. I had a great time wandering the exhibit hall, attending sessions and meetings, meeting authors, and hearing lots of librarians speak and exchange ideas.

Of course, we also managed to squeeze in some sightseeing, exploring, and more, which lends itself to much better pictures than pictures of business meetings. ;-)

If you want the full pictorial tour, you can find my DC set here...below are a few (well, more than a few) favorites...

The gate to Chinatown near the Convention Center...

Chinatown

I adore the Jefferson Memorial, right on the tidal basin and away from the city's hubbub...

Look Ma!

I'd never seen the FDR Memorial, and it's simply amazing...gorgeous waterfalls, filled with inspiring quotes, and great sculptures...

The Lincoln Memorial is THE place to be on a lovely Saturday evening!

Saturday Night Crowd

I love this shot of the Mall taken from the side of the Lincoln Memorial, which was COMPLETELY deserted...

Lincoln and Washington

The Korean War Memorial was really, really cool...

One More

The new (well, new to me) World War II Memorial is really inspiring and peaceful...

Marissa and the Monument

A lovely sunset above the Lincoln Memorial from the WWII Memorial...

Night is Falling

We spent a good portion of time wandering around the National Cathedral, which is just awe-inspiring...

Another View

We rode upstairs on the tour bus - lovely!

My one shot of the White House!

And of course, the Capitol...

The Dome

We saw so much of Washington, DC, this reminding me how much I love this city!
