You GUYS. I hope that you had as spectacular of a weekend as we had here in DC. I mean, OMG. Friday was eh, with rain and still kinda chilly, but Saturday? BE-A-UTIFUL. Sunday??? Equally as gorgeous.
Saturday I finally decided to venture into DC, because I had to figure out this Metro at some point (it's less difficult that the NYC subway, but I wish it had more stops like NYC....), and it was the last weekend of the Cherry Blossom Festival.
Well, I got off the Metro close to where I'd have to then start walking to the river to see the blossoms, and OMG. People. Everywhere. I felt like I was in that Bugs Bunny cartoon where he says to Gossamer "Doc! Look - out there! In the audience!" and Gossamer yells, "PEOPLE!!" and runs through all the stage backdrops to get away. Insert me instead of Gossamer and that was pretty much how my Saturday in the city began.
So, rather than try and see the blossoms, I just kept on walking to the downtown area. I really wanted to go in at least one museum, while I was there, but all those people? I was OUT. Downtown and Georgetown, here I come.
The city gave me plenty to take shots of, but honestly, I was too busy enjoying the sunshine (hello, Vitamin D! i'm SO glad to have you back!!) to take many pictures. Here is a glimpse, though, of some of what I saw during my walk.
Also, if anyone has about eleventy billion dollars they want to give me so I can move to Georgetown, that'd be fabulous.
