King of the City
We saw the Coast Guard Memorial in the harbor near Castle Clinton. This is the only piece of sculpture that I'm aware of where part of it is deliberately in the water. It's a fitting tribute to the Coasties even if the birds are somewhat disrespectful.
We had gone to Charlottesville to visit Monticello. We also took in the campus at the University of Virginia where the bull thistle was in bloom.
