Took a little Trip

We took a little extended weekend trip two weekends ago. I drove to meet Muffin as he finished work for the day and we hopped a plane going East. Our main purpose was to visit Joy and Mike. They always plan entertainment. Here are a few of the sights on the tour with them.
Helen Keller in bronze a the moment she first associated "water," the substance with "water," the word.
Isn't this a beautiful stairway?
John Calhoun was a great speaker. This statue presents him as an arrogant guy, don't you think?
The view from the basement through the skylight toward the Capitol dome is one of the lovely attributes of the new Visitor's Center. The centerpiece for visitors is the museum, but no photography is allowed. More from the nation's capitol in future posts.
