An unexpected visit to Washington DC

Flying back from Florida, we got as far as Washington DC then learned that Boston airport was snowed in and we could get no further – there was some snow in Washington, but further north was a serious storm! We decided to rent a car and tour the U.S. Capital, but we were dressed for Florida, not winter!

We also were unprepared for the confusing roads and heavy traffic, but we finally found parking at Arlington Cemetry:


From Arlington we took a trolley tour bus into the city – it avoided traffic and kept us warm (and took us to the Smithsonian Museums too):


We remained stranded for a couple of days, and visited Fort Washington and Delaware! Eventually Boston airport was cleared enough for us to fly home – of course when we got home, there was snow everywhere!
