It dawned on me that I never did share photos from our most recent excursion to D.C. (aside from a few Instagrams here). We went over Labor Day and, in truth, we didn’t do too much. It was our third trip to the capital in as many years, so we took the opportunity to aimlessly wander the neighborhoods, enjoy daytime cocktails and pop into the zoo. But the most memorable part of the trip was convincing Dave to paddle boat with me in Tidal Basin. It was terribly humid that day, my life preserver was damp with the previous boaters sweat and I didn’t anticipate how difficult paddle boating really is! (Dave kept kneeing himself in the chest because the boats aren’t exactly ideal for anyone over my height at 5’ 7”.) We made it close enough to snap the photo above before giving up and calling an Uber to take us to Churchkey, my favorite beer bar in the city.
