We took so many photos on our road trip, that I didn't quite know where to start showing you. So, I thought I'd begin with what was most stunning to me. The cherry blossoms!
I had heard about them, even seen pictures and have to admit, I didn't really see what the big deal was. However, seeing that many cherry trees in bloom at once, framing some of Washington's most beautiful scenery ~~ it was breathtaking! (Click here to read more about the history of Washington's cherry trees.)
Neither Daniel nor I had ever seen this before. Daniel's sister, Sue (whom we met up with in Washington), saw them many years ago and remembered them to be more pink. This time around, they were mostly white with just a tinge of pink.
This year was the 100th anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival and the path around the tidal basin was packed! Although not as much as I had thought since the cherries are blooming quite a bit earlier due to the warm spring we've had on the East Coast.
Of course, we did see and do much more and I have more to share with you. And not just in Washington. But all in due time...
Today, we have some good friends coming in from Ohio. They are on their way to Florida and are stopping for one evening here to see Savannah.
We are supposed to have storms and rain all afternoon, but I hope it'll let up enough for them to see our beautiful little town.
Tomorrow, I'll share some photos with you that will feed your imagination and creativity...
