Wandering the Capitol

I've just finished up something like six weeks in Washington DC while the wyf was working off her temporary assignment to USCG headquarters. She's had a very busy job with painful long hours and lots of pressure to deal with.

Meanwhile, I've just been wandering around the city enjoying all of the monuments:
Samuel Gompers
Here's some random pictures from the National Mall:
Lincoln Monument
WA Monument
WA Monument2
And the Capitol building:
One evening as we strolled past, Ana and I stumbled across a concert featuring the US Army and Canadian Army bands:
US-Canada Concert
I'm pretty sure this band consisted of something like 26% of Canada's active-duty military personnel.

Meanwhile, it turns out that they have a monument to just about anything you can think of somewhere in DC. There's also plenty of random statues just waiting to be harassed:
Shawn Lion

It's also good to be nice to them though:
Ana Lion

Anyhow... It's been a fun trip, but I've definitely worn out most of the things I planned to do in DC.

Next up: the Voyage Home...
