Washington - Day 2 and 3

It seems like ages ago since we were there, but here is what we got up to on day 2 and 3 of our trip to DC.

Friday morning we left early and caught the metro out to Arlington National Cemetary. It's a worthwhile trip if you ever head to DC and leaves you with one of those feelings that can't really be described....

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

After we left we took the 15 minute walk around to the Iwa Jima statue - another worthwhile trip! The statue was so much bigger than I had expected (not that you can really tell by the photo).
Saturday was spent exploring Bethesda and Georgetown which were both gogeous. While we were in Georgetown we stopped at the Old House which was built in 1766. It is hard to believe that I was standing in a house that was built before English settlers had even arrived in Australia!
I'll end Day 3 of our Washington tour with some more photos of the beautiful area around Georgetown:
