We cruised over to Union Station for lunch and then went to the Library of Congress for our afternoon tour. We were all surprised by how beautiful both buildings were. The Library of Congress and the Capitol rival the palaces of Europe in ornateness. Books, documents, movies, diaries, and many other artifacts are stored at the Library of Congress. Accessing the Library of Congress is easier than ever today. We can just go to www.loc.gov. You can access this site right here on our blog. Just look on the left and you'll see the Library of Congress. Click on it and it will take you anywhere you want to go.
Our last stop of the day - the Potomac River. We spent an hour cruising the Potomac and seeing some of the sites from a boat. We started in Georgetown and headed down towards the Reagan International Airport before turning around and returning to Georgetown. We saw the Jefferson Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, as well as Roosevelt Island. There is so much to see it's hard to believe we only have a few more days left.

Tomorrow we will be taking a bus tour where we can hop on and hop off at different attractions.
