Rolling Thunder in Washington DC

I did watch Rolling Thunder in Washington DC today, my first time. I got out at Smithsonian Station and saw the bikers rolling west on Independence Ave.

I walked west toward the Tidal Basin, and stopped for shelter at a Park Service station as a heavy rain shower with thunder lasted 40 minutes.  Then I walked toward the Lincoln Memorial, pest the West Potomac Park where the bikers congregated, pasted the speakers at the Reflecting Pool and the assemblage honoring Vietnam War veterans.

I saw one biker with a jacket indicating he had been in the 1983 Marine Barracks attack in Beirut.

On Constitution Ave., near the Federal Reserve Building, there was a “Motorcycle Pride” fair.    The bikers were released one more time (like ‘Nsync) and we had to wait for the train to pass to cross Constitution Ave.
