I took off from ZZZ flying an antique luscombe silvaire, destination cge, cambridge, md. I drew a line and marked my chkpoints to cge not thinking about the dc restr area, and the code yellow. The route took me from ZZZ to the north of dahlgren ndy crossing the potomac river to my next chkpoint. I next went to broomes island, finally landing at cge. I was told to call an 800 number and was informed I violated dc airspace. I realize this is no excuse but this antique luscombe has neither electric or radios so I was flying VFR just enjoying the morning.
