GPS navigator wierdness, and TR

We just returned from a week in DC, visiting our daughter. More on that trip later, but I just have to mention this little glitch that came from our Garmin GPS navigator. Twice (well, once, because I only fell for it once), when we were crossing the Key Bridge from Arlington into DC, the Garmin unit had us circle back, cross back over to Arlington on another bridge, then come back over Key Bridge. I would have thought it was my driving, but the second time we aproached Key Bridge from a different route. The Garmin just really wanted to see the underside of the Kennedy Center, I guess.

Also, I found out that there is a Teddy Roosevelt Memorial. On Teddy Roosevelt Island, no less.
