Touring with Crystal and Jake


We spent the day with Crystal, Jake and Amy Jayne.  We had scheduled tours at the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, and Capitol.  We went from 9 this morning until after 6.  

On the way to the Library of Congress. Second stop of the day.


The Library of Congress

















Going to the Supreme Court

The Base of the lamp posts symbolizing that the courts move slow and deliberately. 

Courts are wise as an owl. 

The law is as ferocious as a lion. 





Spiral stair case. 
















We got to see the Chapel in the Capitol.

Lincoln bust is half finished.  There is no ear on the left side symbolizing that his work was not finished. 


Going home.
