I took the whole day off and spent time downtown looking at the cherry blossoms around the tidal basin.
Edda had a fantastic time.
It was cloudy and just a bit chiller than we would have liked, but it meant that the crowds were manageable and the photos were fantastic.
The cherry blossoms are really beautiful. We walked and looked at the monuments too.
We ended up in Georgetown afterwards. We were debating at the beginning of the day if Edda would make it the whole day and she did! Walked probably a mile and smiled most of the time. And because of her, we were able to park easily and quickly in the heart of all the action.
