Zoo Part 3 ( Yes, I’m sorry…more pictures.)
I did mention in part 1 that we got lost trying to find the Zoo. We somehow managed to get turned around in the Zoo and never made it to the top half. I am not going to admit to being lost in the Zoo, but my husband would tell you so.
Due to our parking situation we entered the Zoo from the bottom entrance. The Zoo is a giant hill. Take my word for it. We ended up leaving the Zoo from the bottom entrance. The rest of the photos are dealing with exiting the zoo and trying to leave D.C.
For my chocolate loving friends, you will be pleased to note, that the Zoo has an M&M vending machine. Next to that is the Dippin’ Dots freeze dried ice cream. I tried that once. It is yummy but very odd eating ice cream that reminds you of styro foam beads.
You will also note the rather tired look on my daughters face. She thought we were lagging behind and she was…..tired!
I just thought this was a pretty path up to someones house. All of the homes on the bottom half of this hill have this type stairway to the owner’s front porch. You can see in the above picture how the yards level out as you walk towards the top part of the hill.
We drove by the National Cathedral on our way out…sorry that was the best picture I could get from the moving car. My husband wouldn’t slow down for me…….
Yes. It’s a pig.
Typical D.C. traffic and parking signs.
The Lincoln Memorial as we are heading out of D.C.
If you visit Washington D.C., make sure you have a backup pair of shoes. We walked up hill and down hill several times. We walked so much that my poor son wore holes in the bottom of his shoe. The sole was wearing down but when we arrived at home; he pulled of his shoe and looked at me sadly. I felt horrible. I had no idea he had worn the bottoms down and then our walk just finished off the shoe. Not to mention the hole he wore in his new sock. We went out the very next day and bought the boy some new shoes.
