October 11: We did a tour of the Capitol Building this morning. The rotunda is amazing.
October 12: My last tourist attraction on this trip was Ford’s Theatre where President Lincoln was shot. We got to walk thru the museum in the basement and listen to a Park Ranger talk about that fateful night’s events in the theatre. It is a working theatre but they don’t use the boxes any more. The box is set up the same way it was the night Lincoln was shot.
October 13: The sun glinting thru the leaves on our daily walk.
October 14: Some trees are bursting out in these beautiful orange berries.
October 15: Diesel is making my house filthy. He rolls in the leaves and they stick to his long fur until he comes inside. Then he rubs his drool soaked snout in the dirt until it is nice and muddy. Sigh.
October 16: Our church partnered with Hospitals of Hope to sponsor the building of a Clinic in a Can. These are retrofitted shipping containers that are converted to a self-contained clinic that can be transported to anywhere in the world. This one is going to Haiti to be manned by Mission of Hope.
October 17: A beautiful sight as we got to the park for a Sunday morning walk.
An autumnal path.
