Thanks for the tour and information about the statues. I need to get down there again one of these days. My favorite time to visit the capitol building is in December--when it's decorated and all the Christmas activities happen. :)

Beth: I'm glad you enjoyed the virtual tour. I haven't been up town in December in a couple years now, as I am usually too busy. Methinks I need to try to get up there this year. ☺

You sure had a pretty summer sky for a backdrop! My favorite is the Knowledge statues. Fellow bookworms. :-)

Rajesh: Isn't it impressive?

Laloofah: It honestly was the perfect summer day -- warm without being too hot, and a refreshing breeze off the lakes.

Heather said...

Carol: Thank you, I couldn't have asked for a better backdrop than I had that day. ☺
