Our blog server has been unavailable and I was unable to post earlier.
All of the groups/buses arrived back at the Hyatt by 7:30 PM. The Safety Patrols arrived excited from the sites they had seen today. Most shared that they had visited Mount Vernon today. Other sites seen included Arlington Cemetary; the Lincoln, Jefferson, Vietnam, WW II memorials; the White House (including the Presidential Inaugural Review Box); etc.
Now the Patrols and chaperones are celebrating their adventures or birthdays with pizzas and cakes. Sadly though we also have to plan to leave our great accommodations here at the Hyatt.
I’ll re-post in the morning after all our groups have left for their final day of tour.
