2006_DC_WHouse_Passby14DC -- Presidential Helicopter flybies
Two flybys. The first was (060619) and Kristin and I were desperately trying to get to an event at the Department of the Interior but we were stopped because the presidential helicopter was landing. That killed 15 minutes.

Originally, I was taking pictures of bee keepers installing some instant pollinators in the White House lawn. Later, the Presidential helicopter had come in and I realized I was seeing Michelle Obama and Bo, the First Dog, a Portugese water dog.

Most of the fence extension on the northern side is completed and they're working on the south side now. A guard suggested you'd actually be able to get near the fence again when they're done.

This was during the Christmas government shutdown. The tree is part of the National Park Service which didn't have funding. A big donor agreed to fund the Christmas lights and trains but not trash pick-up.

In the old days, this was a more enjoyable event because you could actually wander through some of the gardens. Now days, you have to stay on the pavement and you seldom get anywhere close to an actual plant. Still, it's only offered a few times a year so take it while you can.
