Clouds create an interesting pattern behind the Washington Monument in Washington, DC. At the end of July, Laura and I took a trip with our friend Karen to Winchester, Virginia. Our main goal was to see Karen’s daughter Katie in two shows. But we also visited Washington, DC, on two different days. Laura had never been there before, and I had last been there 35 years ago, so we were excited to see some of the sights, including museums and monuments.
