monuments by motorcycle

I was home alone with two wheels this weekend and the weather was lovely–balmy and almost fall like. After a day of power cleaning and glassblowing, I decided to do some exploring. After more than a decade in this city, I had never taken in the Bartholdi Fountain at night or visited one of our newest monuments–the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial. Time to hit the road.

I traveled down 16th Street, making a left at the White House before heading across the mall and passed the Washington Monument to the Tidal Basin and the memorial.

Afterward, I made another swing around the tidal basin for a photo op with the Jefferson Memorial before heading down Independence Avenue to the U.S. Capitol and Bartholdi Park.

A beautiful night out in the city.
