A Look at Abraham Lincoln in D.C.

This post will be loaded with photos so don’t say I didn’t warn you.

I’m joining Jenny for Alphabe-Thursday for the Letter L.

I’m gathering all my photos that I took while I was in D.C. in May of Abraham Lincoln. I’ll start with the less obvious views around D.C. and end with the Lincoln Memorial.

The spot where life ended tragically for our 16th President.

I’m adding humorous quotes from here on out from President Lincoln.

From the National Portrait Gallery…

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

“He can compress the most words into the smallest ideas better than any man I ever met.”

“When I hear a man preach, I like to see him act as if he were fighting bees.”

“Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

“When you have got an elephant by the hind leg, and he is trying to run away, its best to let him run.”

“You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time.”

Hope your summer is swimming along. We are enjoying some happy weather here in the Northwest!

Photo Shoot Monday ~ Night Photography

 

This weeks photo challenge from Carly at Ellipsis is Night Photography. I’m sharing some of my Washington D.C. Moonlight Tour photos.

 

 

This can be considered dusk as well as the next photo.

 

 

 

 

Now for a flashback…

 

Our daughter Katie at night outside a Seattle restaurant after celebrating the completion of her degree. This next photo shows her backdrop.

 

Thanks Carly for the prompt.

To everyone who visits here I’d like you to know I appreciate it and the kind comments you leave. Today I’m enjoying the after effects of a relaxation massage my kids gifted me with on my 60th birthday last March. Tomorrow is the first day of summer and we’re still waiting for Spring around here. We are hoping for a good stretch of sunshine soon! Blessings!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

Last Night in D.C.

This photo is from last night. We took a moonlight monument tour in Washington D.C.

Tonight is also our last night in D.C. We’ll be back in Washington state tomorrow morning.

 

It’s been wonderful to be in our nation’s Capitol but I’m looking forward to being back in our other Washington.

Woohoo! My brother Leonard is in Baltimore for a business trip and he’s going to drive for an hour to come and meet up with us! What a fun turn of events. Leonard lives in Dallas with his family and we don’t often get to see each other. A very nice way to cap off our trip to D.C.

Blessings…
