An Afternoon at DC's Cherry Blossom Festival
In a moment of sheer genius, R. and I took the afternoon off to play tourist and see the Cherry Blossoms yesterday. We rented bikes from Capital Bikeshare, which we had never done before, but was awesome! I may or may not have had to give threatening looks to some kids on a field trip who wouldn't get out of my bell-less bike's way, but that is neither here nor there. It was so fun to zoom around the Tidal Basin that I can't wait to take out of town guests to do the same thing. Afterwards we rode around the National Mall, stopped to look at the carousel, and then rewarded ourselves with ice cream. The blossoms were lovely and I wish they'd bloom forever.
