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.

June: More work on the Trump wall around the White House.
August 29: 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.

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.

They'd updated a few sections for "Donald J. Trump" -- I guess they're required to use his middle initial every time they refer to him. Understandable since I usually need the middle finger to do the same.
