Teddy Roosevelt Island

Charge! Or at least that's what Teddy might have said as he started across the long foot bridge to the island that houses his "memorial." Memorial is in quotes because I don't know if the fountains will ever run again. Supposedly a renovation effort was undertaken several years ago but then the earthquake hit which complicated things, and, so no fountains or ponds at the memorial. But...that's not why we really went to the island. We walked down to the southern tip which is under the Memorial Bridge. The tide was out so we were able to walk "off the trail" to the shore...such as it is. From there we had a reasonable view of the Kennedy Center and the Lincoln Memorial. I admit that my hip and knees were not happy with my small walk...snarling...yep, that's what my hip was doing.
