Today's the final day at our lovely sweet suite (as I've been calling it to myself). It's neither lovely nor sweet but does the job. I am finished sight-seeing for now and I did not finish my "list". Its been raining all week thanks to tropical storm Lee which really put a damper on going out. I did visit Georgetown Cupcakes one last time on Tuesday for old-times sake :) That place gets better every time I go- the frosting was still delicious and the cupcakes were both moist. Only bad thing...I had the worst stomach ache (i accidentally typed stomache for stomach ache--that still makes sense though right?? they have nearly the same ending) Here are our pictures from the past week:
|Out in the rain. This park is called "Dark Star Park." Unusual.|
|A celebratory meal...I learned to open a hardshell crab and thought the yellow-green stuff inside |
was butter with herbs.....I was just a bit off the mark with this assumption :)
|On Tuesday, I did my last day of sightseeing. |
I went to the Freer & Sackler Galleries & National Gallery of Art.
(this was another stranger-taken pic at sculpture garden)
|Inside NG of Art.|
|When I left, it was no longer just sprinkling but pouring rain. I did a bit of running, jumping and splashing over and through these puddles to get to the metro. I was soaked by the end but loved being out on the mall nearly alone.|
|Scout & I walk to the park around Iwo Jima to see the DC skyline...|
|....but yesterday it was too foggy to see even the capitol so we looked at the flowers instead.|
Side story to this park: Today on our morning walk, someone, someone important with a black entourage of cars and about 8 Secret Service agents pulled into the park in front of us and got out of their cars to see Iwo Jima. Being the 'cool' local pedestrian that I am, I didn't want to stare so I never did see who was there. I had to chuckle to myself when rather than just getting in the car to leave, this important person used the porta-potty before hitting the road. The funny part was not that he was using a porta-potty but that all the secret service agents surrounded the porta-potty while in use. Aww, the downside of being a public figure.
|I loved these.|
| I like to take awkward-looking pictures of scout...|
his nose looks huge and this wasn't even the worst of them.
