A Capital Adventure

With the unusually warm temperatures last weekend, we decided to take Baxter out on the town Saturday to try and get him some visibility.  My boyfriend and I love DC and haven’t been in a while, so we headed out for some sightseeing. The wind made it a little chilly, but that didn’t stop us from having a great time.

We started out at the White House, and Baxter of course looked for Bo! He was a little bummed when we didn’t catch a glimpse of him.

Then we headed down past the Washington Monument. Baxter was happy to know we would not be climbing to the top.

Our favorite route is to then walk over past the WW2 memorial to this area called Constitution Gardens – a cute little pond and island located sort of away from the main tourist hubs (during the summer at least). Now the gorgeous willow tree is just branches, but the island is still as pleasant as always! Can you tell Baxter didn’t exactly appreciate the breeze coming off the water…

We ended at the Lincoln Memorial, where Baxter and I broke the rules and ran up the steps to snap a few super quick pictures.

Baxter proved to be quite the disinterested tourist.

Although I do think he left with slightly more appreciation for such historic significance a nice long walk outside.

Maybe he’s got some city dog in him?
