What timing!!! Tim and I were in Washington D.C. at the peak of cherry blossom time! Last Wednesday, our first day in D.C., the blossoms still had hints of pink. Then by Sunday, they were clouds of pure white!! When I was there two years ago, I was a week or two early. The blossoms had just started. So to see the trees at full bloom was a wonderful high light to our trip.
Tim and I were lucky enough to be able to stay with our sister-in-law, Marcie. She lives right in the heart of DC. We took bus, Metro, or foot to get around, what a great time.
We really liked all the walking. So much to see by foot. The trees, blooming bulb flowers, architecture, people, it was all so interesting.
We were able to get a tour of the capital though our state representative Colin Peterson, Sara from his office was our guide, she was so knowledgeable about the facts and history of the capital.
