Where Did You Find or Leave Bear?: Washington DC, USA

History, Artifacts, and Astronauts, Oh My! Lucy spent a glorious day hopping amongst one of America’s greatest treasures… the Smithsonian Institution. The Smithsonian consists of over a dozen world-class museums, all of which are free to the world as a gift from the American people. And it is one of the things that Lucy’s hosts like best about living near Washington DC.

In a day that included seeing the Declaration of Independence and the Magna Carta at the Archives; eating bison chili at the Museum of the American Indian; and exploring the dinosaur bones at the Museum of Natural History, Lucy was most taken with the wonders of the Air and Space Museum. She got an up close look at the Apollo 11’s Command Module for the First Manned Lunar Landing Mission. This was the mission where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin successfully landed on the moon for the first time in history. Lucy and a young friend also tried their luck at being a NASA Flight Control expert. Afterward they rocked out playing with a thermal camera detecting radiant heat. Lucy pointed herself out in the picture so that you could easily find her.

Another high point in Lucy’s day came while at the Museum of American History. She traveled down the Yellow Brick Road and got an up close look at Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers. Thank goodness the Wicked Witch of the West was nowhere to be found. Jim Henson’s original Kermit-the-Frog also drew Lucy’s attention, being an animal of great character like herself. Lucy can only trust that her own wanderings will bring as much attention to her cause as Kermit draws to his. Here is to a little inspiration and a great deal of luck.

Not all who wander are lost.
