A Walk in the Park

It was a decent day out, so I went for a walk after lunch. And as happened on Sunday, the sun burned off the clouds while I was out and about beneath them. Made me regret bringing my leather jacket.

But I went and saw a lot of things, since the White House and the Mall are only a short walk ... and since I won't be working here that much longer they won't be as accessible as a post-lunch walk real soon.

And there were these huge carp in a pond next to the huge reflecting pool. White and orange, with some peppered with black specks. They were all almost the size of my leg. They were bigger than the ducks they swam beneath.

I probably took longer than I should have. But that's no big deal.

Pardon, but...
Is this a little bridge leading to a sort-of monument with the names of the signers of the constitution... or maybe the declaration of independence? A little circular place with a garden type area and raised stones with the names on them?
A bridge next to a bend in the blue water that contains, on the inside, what looks like a weeping willow?
With trees and large stone steps across the water?
possibly (I'm not sure) near the Lincoln memorial?

Re: Pardon, but...
Yeah, that's the place. Been there?

Re: Pardon, but...
It'd be funny right now if I just said...

'no.'

But I can't, cause I have.
(big surprise?)
I have a picture of me standing there in the summer of 95, when I was ten and my family went down on one of our numerous trips to DC.
I remember the picture 'cause I think it's one of the dumbest ones ever taken of me.
I'm wearing a lion king shirt, a backpack, a purse, a big clunky black plastic watch, a ponytail, huge found glasses, and the goofiest expression ever.
The sun is also in my eyes, so I'm squinting.
But I remember the quantity of ducks.
and the fish.

There definitely were a lot of ducks around. As I was checking out the fish, one or two ducks swam by within arms reach, with about 7 in the general vicinity.
