On 9th July I boarded a Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow airport to Washington Dulles airport in the USA. It was a great trip - although we only just made it onto the plan in time!
What a beautiful morning it was!
On arrival in the USA it was not so bright - but very hot and humid.
On our way down ...
This is the plan we flew in.
Norvell picked us up from the airport and we made our way back to her place in Virginia.
That evening I made friends with her blonde boy, John.
I admired his wonderful dinosaur bone t-shirt that he got from Cassandra - I've put one on my wish list!
Mum said he was handsome...she then added that 'of course he wasn't as handsome as me!'
But then she would have to say that wouldn't she?
The following day Norvell took Mum and I into Washington to see the White House (some of these photos you would have seen in my 'fill in' post while I was away.
The little church that many of the Presidents have worshipped in.
The approach to the White House.
Here I am!
Okay you have seen the next photos before, but I just wanted to show them again for the fun of it!
Mum & I
Norvell & I
Here I am pointing to the US Secret Service Police Car...this was soooo cool!
I wonder if they will let me in?
Hmm...perhaps I need to wait here?
This building was humongous!
By this stage we really had had enough of the heat....
So we went in here!
The Renwick Gallery
Up the red carpet steps.
Hello, who are you?
She was a rather strange lady!
This fish was really amazing, it was made out of all sorts of toys and things.
This looked very fragile - a glass spinning wheel.
An interesting piece of furniture.
Lastly a beautiful quilt.
We also saw lots of paintings - some of which Norvell had worked on during her time as a conservationist.
