USA Block Tour - Washington DC & US VIrgin Islands

February 7, 2021
Week #28 has two special tours for you this week.  One to our Nation's Capital, Washington DC and another to the US Virgin Islands. 
I chose to do the bonus block of the District of Columbia because my husband worked for the Secret Service when he got out of the Army in the early 70’s.   I got to visit the Oval office, & tour the White House; went to lots of museums, the zoo, the Jefferson & Lincoln Memorials; had picnics on the mall in front of the Washington Monument and enjoyed the cherry blossoms in the spring.

Everyone knows that Washington DC is our nation’s capital and that it’s where you can visit some of the world’s most famous monuments and memorials. But there are a few little known facts about DC that many people would be surprised by.

TWO AMERICAN PRESIDENTS KEPT ALLIGATORS AT THE WHITE HOUSE.  It’s true; both Herbert Hoover and John Quincy Adams had pet alligators in the white house.

DARTH VADER ADORNS THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL.  This iconic building has many gargoyles and one of them is the sculpted head of Darth Vader. Bring binoculars and check him out on the northwest tower.

Our complimentary blocks this week include a silhouette of the Capitol dome, and a fun tropical scene from the US Virgin Islands.
