DC by land and sea

Saturday we went to the Smithsonian, starting with The Castle, which contains random historical items.


Like the American Idol judges table


And this bird eating tarantula


Then over to the National Museum of American History


I never had a cool lunch pail. Just a brown bag and Toughskins jeans.


Kermit


Puffy shirt



Hoods worn by conspirators in Lincoln's death. Creepy.


Lincoln bronze


Stuffed WW II dog


Our first choice of where to eat lunch was closed, so we ended up at this Caribbean joint: Naby's Island Restaurant.


Jerk chicken, rice, beans, and cabbage = delicious


Coming out of the Metro: Redis, Jina, Alena, and Kelly


On Sunday we took a Potomac river cruise on the Spirit of Washington.


The buffet was ok. Not my favorite meal of the trip.


It was good enough for Gary Coleman though.


Ship mates.

Bumming a smoke


Unflattering jeans.
