The view from the top

On the way up to visit a family member in DC hubby and stopped off to tour the George Washington Masonic Memorial in Alexandria. The only way to get this view is to take the tour. It is worth the price. It was an overcast day so our vista view wasn't wonderful but we were able to pick out the Washington Monument the Capitol, the National Cathedral and the Basilica at Catholic University. The other obvious sights were the new Wilson bridge and Washington National airport. However this picture shows only the view straight down from the observation deck with the Potomac River in the background. The designers of the memorial envisioned this view as one you'd get in a reflecting pond with the water rippling. The symbol of the Masons is in the middle of the shot.

Until my next post,
