Cherry Blossoms (The Epic Part III)

Today I have posted some photos of the second quarter of our visit to Tidal Basin and the Cherry Blossoms. As we proceeded down and around the basin we were struck by the changing light and how the monuments changed so dramatically in the different lights. We were always pausing and looking across or looking back. It was in this section of our visit that we entered the FDR Memorial. We went through starting at the end of the monument but we had visited before and the impact was still strong. This visit was different still because our last visit was in the winter when the fountains are not operating. Today's picture cover his fourth term in office. The granite, the rain drops, the words, the figures, the blossoms all made this a very meaningful visit for us.
