Arlington

I managed to have a free afternoon while visiting Washington D.C. so I decided to walk over to see Arlington cemetery. A couple of points, One- it’s a fairly long walk from downtown to Arlington, Two- it’s a huge place when you get there and a long way up to the top of the hill. I probably would have been well served to ride the metro to the Arlington station and take advantage of the shuttles the drive around the cemetery. My feet were pretty sore the next day. It felt right somehow to walk slowly and quietly without the throng of people that were bustling about most places I went, though so I persevered.

One advantage of walking quietly was that Arlington is a surprisingly good place to do some bird watching.

 

Since it was spring time there were plenty of things in bloom as well.
