Last post from D.C., promise

I was really debating if I should do another post on D.C., three really seemed like enough, but I took a few photos on my last day which were just too awesome to not blog.
Monument 
Monument in my eye Lincoln by day
The Rundown
Top TJMaxx - Jeans Kohls - Necklace Gap - Earrings Aldo - Station Bag Coach Thrifted - Sunnies Kohls - Bracelet Kohls - Belt Gap - Sandals Onex Nile (um yeah, they aren't in any photos)

On Sunday, we hit up the monuments once again, this time in the light of day. I knew before planning the trip that I wouldn't be able to go in the washington Monument because of potential damage from that earthquake a while back, but I did not know that the reflection pool was dug up!!

Apparently last October (so a whole year ago) they realized that the pool was leaking and turning green and decided it needed to be redone. And 12 months later it still looks like a mud pit.  So much for the awesome photo I was hoping to take.
would have been pretty WWII WWII Fountain
The rest of the day was spent wandering the halls of the National Gallery, which was not to be missed. So many gorgeous works of art, and a really cool Andy Warhol exhibit (but you weren't allowed to take photos of it, sorry!)

Goodbye D.C.!

The first photo is so worth the visit to DC. Sad to see the pool dug up- that's the one in Forrest Gump I think?

Bella said...

I really like visiting DC. I love all the Smithsonian museums (and the fact that they are free!!!) but the museum of natural history is my favorite!

Amber Blue Bird said...

oh man I cant believe they dug up the pool. How am I ever going to recreate that Forest Gump scene now ?

Lorena said...

Yep, the reflection pool and the ducks were gone.
When I visited I was all excited telling my friend how pretty it was and i was telling her about the ducks and when we got there she was so disappointed :(
But there's plenty more to see that makes up for it.

Mrs. J said...

I love D.C. you looked like you had loads of fun. It's a shame the pool is gone, but at least you'll have next time.

btw, great outfit and lovely blouse. :)
