I'm playing catch up today after 3 weeks of trips to the East coast. Whew I'm pooped!
First trip was to Washington DC to meet up with a dear friend from my Amsterdam days. (This is who the 'here and there' scarf is for... sadly it didn't get finished in time. What was I thinking -- a 72inch cable scarf, in skinny yarn, in a week? Next time I should plan for a cowl!)
It was my first trip to DC and I fell in love with the city. Unfortunately I was just a couple of weeks too early for all the Cherry Blossoms to be in bloom (I envision that the city must look spectacular at this time). But still Spring was in the air with a few early bloomers, budding magnolias and daffodils. Beautiful.
Since it was a short visit, we started by jumping on one of the tour buses to get a sense of the city with great commentary from the guide along the way.
There's so much to see and do, I was a little sad that I didn't have the time to visit at least one of the many museums, and the botanical gardens. I think you could spend years in the city and still not feel like you'd experienced all it had to offer. But I did get to see The White House, Lincoln Memorial and Vietnam Memorial. I'll certainly be returning at some time.
Then it was back to Colorado (aaah) for 2 days before my next trip to New York...
Hope you are also enjoying some relaxing time this weekend,
