Roosevelt Island

#1tomatolover rode his bike from Pittsburgh to DC. After he arrived, he didn't want to want to move around too much, but on the second day, I convinced him to walk around Roosevelt Island with me.

Roosevelt Island is a little bit of peace and quite and green in the middle of sidewalks and tall buildings. But, of course, there's a little bit of politics, too--there's a memorial to Teddy Roosevelt in the middle. Gotta love him: "[T]he history of America is now the central feature of the history of the world; for the world has set its face hopefully toward our democracy."

It was nice to have #1tomatolover there, since he's quite tall and could reach up and get close pictures that I couldn't (several of these are his).

Including this one--of a super gross clump of daddy long legs! (There were several clumps!)

I love this tree--how romantic!
