In DC, the Post hieress' estate called Hillside Estate and Gardens lies..I wasn't so sure what to expect until I arrived and was so pleasantly surprised at the collection of furnishings, relics and the amazing gardens..this is the main staircase going up to the bedrooms of the mansion that was taken from a French castle and brought to DC for Post..A must visit when in DC..
Across the street from Ford Theater...after Lincoln was shot he was carried across the street to a hotel..the hotel has been expanded housing items of Lincoln and as you descend the staircase these all of these books are stacked that have been written about Lincoln...
Attending the American Counseling Association conference I came across this dog at the convention center..only to find out he is a certified "therapy dog"..Sweet and velvety soft..he has his own stool just in case the person can't reach him..Of course I loved this dog he's a therapist!

Balboa Park is one of my favorite parks in the country..not only does it have a rich Spanish history but it has a personal history for me. As a child, my family would take us all for picnics, visit the different museums and I took ballet classes near this building. These copellas top the Balboa Park theater.

My goal was to capture sunsent before our trip to San Diego was over...As I was walking throught the Del Coronado hotel with my family and friends time past me by and I missed the sunset when I realized..so I dashed passed the tall Christmas tree in the lobby of the Del Hotel..walked fast by the stores and ice rink by the beach and marched through the sand on the beach to take some shots of the last glimmer of sun colors on our last night in San Diego...
