This is the morning that almost never was. I had to wake up before 6 to get out on the road as the sun was rising. And I almost gave up at my alarm and went back to bed. Alas, opportunity won over.
I rented a bicycle from the street and started my ride, mimicking the night before with a farther destination: the Jefferson Memorial.
After the Vietnam and Korean War Memorials, I biked past a military event at Lincoln Memorial and on to the road to Jefferson along the Potomac River. The sun was in a perfect spot to illuminate the columned structure and Thomas Jefferson himself. I went crazy with pictures.
After a roundabout the Capitol Building, Library of Congress and the Supreme Court, I returned to my hotel to start my day. A perfect morning!
