To celebrate mom's birthday, I took her on a noon cruise around the DC harbor, we had lunch at the Fish Market and then had a celebratory dinner that night when the husband came home from work. Although the Viewing of the monuments, was really not a viewing, the cruise itself wasn't bad. It was short but the captain was knowledgable and explained a lot about the sights we did see. The fish market was awesome, although going mid-week wasn't too crowded - i can imagine how it gets come the weekend.
Here are a few photos :)
