Saturday

Posted by on July 15, 2006

We started this morning, our last day in DC, going to Ford’s Theatre.

And the Peterson house across the street where Lincoln died.

We then walked down to the Nation Archives which have been closed since the flooding here in DC. It finally opened the day we were leaving so we ran in and looked at the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

We then went back and checked out of the hotel. We caught a circulator bus back to Union Station and checked our baggage at the Amtrak counter. We grabbed some lunch in Union Station and ran next door the the Postal Museum.

Now we are back at Union Station in the Acela Lounge (lounge for sleeper car passengers). We have about two hours until departure. Looking forward to getting back on the train!

Perhaps be able to post some more tomorrow in Chicago.

    It looks like you got in a good last day of sight seeing. I guess you are probably on the train and moving by now. I hope you all had a really good trip and enjoyed your ride. Who is in the coach with Michael and Stephen? We are looking forward to seeing more pictures later. Enjoy a good nights rest—-you’lll have to get back to “real life” before you know it. Half the fun is always planning the trip and you all did that for a long time so I hope you think it was worth it even if you thought the White House was a bummer. We’ll talk to you when you get home but I’ll be checking for more postings. Love to all of you

    Well you all have certainly had a full week of sight-seeing in DC. I know you all had fun there.

    Ok, Stephen and Michael, my mail is late today…you all better get moving in that carriage in the mail museum and get my mail to me!

    You guys have a great train trip to ChiTown and a good flight home!
