While our destination was Georgia, this was a trip where the journey was the destination:

    We recently travelled down to Georgia. Along the way and on the return we made some stops.  On the way home we stopped into Williamsburg.  A nice, well-named, little town.

    The next stop on our return was Washington–a city of monuments, memorials and museums.  Our hotel was located just a few blocks from the Lincoln Memorial, although it was the last one we visited.  The Washington Monument was the first: This Monument is protected by a ring of flags.
