We have finally finished up our LONG day two of the trip and we had beautiful weather all day with PLENTY more walking (approx 18,900 steps / 9 miles!)

After breakfast at the hotel, we headed to the Capitol Building for a tour and House of Representative gallery viewing. Then we took a walk to the Train Station for lunch.

Afterwards, we had a very special visit to the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture. Special thanks to Dr. Cynthia Rasbury for her efforts in getting our group passes to this amazing facility.

Next, we were off to the United States Holocaust Museum for their powerful exhibits.

After some recreation on the grounds of the Washington Monument, we checked out the World War II Memorial before heading to dinner.

After dinner, we had an evening tour of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial and the Jefferson Memorial. Then it was back onto the bus for our trip back to the hotel.

Tomorrow, we will visit the outside of the White House before touring the Smithsonian. After that, we'll be heading home. We anticipate an arrival time of 7-8pm and will keep you updated with an actual time from the road.

Have a great night... See you tomorrow!
