Last day in Washington DC

The sun was shining again on our last day as we checked out of the hotel and went to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum at the airport. Here they have all the big aircraft which they could not accommodate in the museum down town that we went to. Alan was particularly keen to see the Space Shuttle DISCOVERY. We were too.

































































There were many aircraft there showing the history of flight from the Wright Brothers to space exploration all with in a 100 year period. Alan took lots of pics, but after four solid hours of the museum, which we think was well done, we were all in need of a coffee.


Using the iPad we navigated to a Starbucks which sadly did not have any chocolate chip cookies, so we settled for a raisin one. Then after a walk round a supermarket where the boys compared prices and products with those in Germany we drove to the airport and checked our luggage. Now all we have to do is sit and wait. Our next news will be from Germany, which we are not due to arrive in until Sunday.
