We stayed at the Irish-owned historic Phoenix Park Hotel, just a couple of blocks from the capitol.
We started our morning with an Irish Country Breakfast, including Irish soda bread toast, and a strong cup of delicious Bewley's tea. While GJ was in meetings, AJ and I visited the Smithsonian Postal Museum just across from the hotel. We learned a lot of interesting facts about the history of the postal service in the USA. We each climbed aboard a stagecoach. Thank goodness we didn't have to travel that way on our journey to D.C. And, fortunately AJ didn't have the camera to take a photo of me climbing in a out of the stagecoach.
Later in the day we visited the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.
After a late dinner we walked around the capitol.
We enjoyed a delightful afternoon tea this afternoon. I will post the details next.
