After several long years, our annual library conference was finally back in person, this time in Washington, DC. The conference is always exhausting, amazing, busy, book-filled and quick, but in the evenings, we really do try to see all we can of the host city, and there is nowhere better to do that than DC.
We spent Saturday evening experiencing the Natural History Museum during “Solstice Saturday”, we ate oysters and pastries and sushi during our dinners, we explored Ford’s Theatre, but one of my favorite experiences this time around was taking a Moonlight Monument tour.
Granted, it’s still pretty light out at 6pm when we met up 😉 but by the time we finished at 11pm, night at fallen, and the monuments are my favoritefavorite at night. Here are just a few highlights…
If only it hadn’t been 807345087345 degrees every day! It’s on my bucket list to make it to DC for the blooming of the cherry blossoms. Someday!
Thanks for sharing some of our Nation’s beauty — helpful to remember some of the magnitude & majesty involved in the keeping of our democracy!
