Washington & The Cherries

Washington & the Cherries

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

With the weather nearly perfect, and the cherries at their peak, we walked from Downtown to the World War II Memorial, sat and had a nice lunch from the Farmer’s Market in Courthouse (where things are picking up, I expect two weeks and we’ll be up to par.), enjoying the throngs around us.

From there, it was to the Tidal Basin, and the stone lantern and the stone pagoda, as well as 100,000 of our closest tourist friends.

We wandered through the FDR memorial, for Jeff hadn’t seen it yet, enjoyed the words of they who’ve gone before us, and the artisans who were painting on the Mall.

The Jefferson Memorial was packed to the gills with folks watching the bands on the stage there, though many were reading the words of the Declaration of Independence, or walking between the columns that surround the memorial.

It was a lovely day yesterday, and a more beautiful one yet today, as I planted my spring garden, including a new azalea. Welcome to the lovely season, DC.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
