The Enterprise was definitely one of the most interesting exhibits to see in the National Air and Space Museum.
The weather couldn't have been better for September.
Could this be a line to take photos of the White House?
For years I thought Okinawa shared the same flower symbol as Hawaii.  But I was wrong.  Okinawa's prefectural flower is the Deigo where as Hawaii's state flower is the Hibiscus, pictured here.  Regardless, I find the Hibiscus to be one of the most beautiful flowers and was happy to see this in the Enid A. Haupt Garden, located right behind the Smithsonian Institution.
We met a unique and unexpected friend along the way.
