Our ambassadors treated us to a pancake breakfast this morning before we left. They were even kind enough to make me a couple of gluten-free pancakes.
We spent another day spent in Washington DC, this time visiting as many monuments as we could. We left later than usual, 1PM, and our first stop was the Lincoln Memorial.
We used this location for another group photo.
If you park at the Lincoln Memorial, you can easily walk to the Vietnam Memorial and the Korean War Memorial.
We then went to dinner at a place called Carmine’s Italian Restaurant. What a feast we had, and they addressed gluten-free very well for an Italian Restaurant. This restaurant was build for a crowd with several groups having dinner there at the same time we were. The group next to us looked like a busload of high school kids all dressed up going to a Homecoming Dance. It sounded like a school cafeteria in there.
After dinner, and now nighttime, we revisited some of the same monuments plus a couple more to see the monuments at night. First stop, Lincoln Memorial.
And the final stop was another we didn’t see in the day, the Jefferson Memorial.
We got home at 10pm, totally exhausted. We’ve been averaging 4-5 miles of walking a day while visiting Washington, DC.
