This is map of the whole Tidal Basin. I decided to take a different approach to walking and taking pictures: walk the whole Tidal Basin in a counter-clockwise fashion. I also took in a lot of the unusual objects along the way.
The TV crew from Channel 9 took some footage for later broadcast.
The Washington Monument, with a reflection in the Basin.
I like the combination of the calm Tidal Basin, Washington Monument, and the drooping Cherry Blossoms

Gorgeous view from over half the way around the Tidal Basin
Cherry Blossoms and buds
Sunlight brightening a set of blossoms
A rogue blossom growing out of a break in the bark
Sweeping view of the Tidal Basin
A near and far view of the Cherry Blossoms
Even the older, gnarled trees are blooming
For the first time, I got to see the WW-II Memorial
