I decided to only go down to where the paddle boats are and then tuned to walk back to the Mall. To give you an idea of just how many people were down there, I had to cross Maine Avenue to head back north. It took three lights for me to get cross the street. Three.
Walking up to the Mall all there was wave after wave of people. This was before noon. I can only imagine what the rest of the day had in store.
