Take a Hike.

The Capital Weather Gang (rarely wrong, always fun to read) have put up their insanely optimistic forecast for the early part of the week, calling for sunshine, low humidity and the kind of perfect days that exist only in the collective imagination of the poets.

So, here’s what you do after work today. Don’t head straight home, take a walk. Getting on the metro at McPherson Square? Walk to Metro Center or Farragut West. Walk through Dupont Circle down to Farragut North. Walk to Gallery Place or Archives.

Give yourself a taste of this awesome weather instead of taking the subterranean route home. Taking the bus? Walk a few blocks and catch it at the next stop up the route.

Or, blow off dinner at the house, and pack it up and head for the park for a picnic. Better yet? Take your camera and snap some shots for the Flickr group!

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.
