The drive was a bit rainy, but good flowing traffic
until 2 miles from our exit to Harold & Cathy's cafe . The meal was just like the Airport Drive-In. We were just on schedule to the UDVAR Air & Space Museum.
Seeing the Space Shuttle was one of my highlights.
The big boys preferred the rotating simulator for a couple more dollars. Our drive to Arlington proved that my printed maps don't touch a GPS. We met Dr. Mike and went to a BBQ joint where you order by the tub and eat 'til your stuffed.
We walked there from his apartment that was 18th out of 19 floors. The rooftop was were the boys let off steam shooting the water pools off the furniture onto one another.
We said our goodbyes, drove across the Potomac, into the National Cathedral's driveway , down a bit of Embassy Row, and then to the Palomar Hotel on DuPont circle. What a great first day in my book.
