Here is a Google Map image of the walk I took.
and the path I should have took.
For Some reason I thought New Hampshire Ave would be a good direction to head.
And sure you would think once I realized that the street numbers were going up I would have fixed my direction... but it didn't.
and once I hit Dupont Circle I new I messed up and once I hit the George Washington area I took out my tourist DC map and tried to figure out where the hell I ended up.
On the plus side I got to see the Watergate building
