Washington, DC - At Christmas - Part II

Pictures enlarge if you click on them.Abraham Lincoln National Memorial

I had lots of free airfare tickets from Southwest Airlines that were about to expire. So Catherine and I took vacation time and went to see Washington DC at Christmas. I have been to Washington DC many times on business and for pleasure and Catherine visited there once without me, but we had never been there together.
