Flash Fiction #164

DC Tour

PHOTO PROMPT © J Hardy Carroll


We visited a couple of friends in Washington, DC, for the first time.  I left our tourist itinerary in his capable hands; a day to see the White House, a day at the Washington Monument and the National Mall, a day to explore the Smithsonian, a day to marvel at the Pentagon.

He warned us that there would be a lot of foot-travel.  Anything in DC worth visiting, is on a walking tour.  He urged us to, “Rest up; by the time we’re done, you’ll be worn to a nub.”

I just thought that he meant from the bottom up.

    All that city pavement walking would wear me out too.

      I occasionally urge those younger than me to disconnect their electronic leashes, and actually go outside and exercise, but, at almost 74, I begin to appreciate virtual tours. 😳


  3. My feet begin to ache the moment I set foot on a city pavement, I get this completely


  4. Certainly different, refreshingly so! Nice one.

  5. Dear Archon,

    I once spent a week with my brother who worked in DC. Lots of great sightseeing. But definitely tiring by the end of the day.

    City pavements can make you ache in places you didn’t know you had places! Great take.
