To the White House
After breakfast Chris and I took a walk to the waterfront a few blocks up King Street and spent an hour walking around
enjoying the lovely
before taking the free trolley to the other end of King Street right outside the metro station.
After a short ride we arrived on 17th Street a bustling square with lots of locals and tourists hanging out in the park also enjoying the nice weather. We took a walk to the Whitehouse,
firstly taking photos of the back of the building before walking around and taking photos of the back. Although we thought we could get a tour of the inside,
this wasn't the case, so admiring the grounds was the only option. We then walked around for a little while longer taking the obligatory tourist photos before walking back to the square,
eating some yummy street food and relaxing in the park, before catching the metro back to King Street.
Once back at hotel we went for a swim on the 3rd floor of our hotel before showering and dressing up for our free wine hour downstairs.
After having a look at Trip Advisor we decided to take their advice and go to their Number 2 restaurant choice, 'Vaso's Kitchen' , just over a mile's walk from our place. Food was ok, but nowhere near as tasty as the previous night, leaving us a bit disappointed and surprised by the generous reviews it's received online. Either way though, we left full and wandered back to the hotel, put on the T.V. and had an early night excited about tomorrow!!
