There’s a little gap in updates. When I arrived in Washington, all my time was spent with family and friends. I have been home for almost a week, and finally got a chance to sit still and write about the last leg of my trip.
In my last post, I was still on the C&O canal near Harper’s Ferry. The canal is a great bike trail…surrounded by water, mountains and forest.
Part of the trail was washed out from flooding. I took a detour through some beautiful countryside…
I crossed the Potomac River into Virginia on the historic White’s Ferry.
(I actually got to ride the Ferry 3 times…because I dropped my glove on the Maryland side)
My only photo on the home stretch was the endless parade of cars while waiting to cross the street. I should have taken more pictures in Virginia, but I was eager to get to a warm meal and hot tub at my sister’s house.
She’s pregnant with her first baby…and by her request, there aren’t any pregnant sister photos (women can be funny) but take my word for it, she’s beautiful….and pregnant!
I chose the National Gallery of Art as my monument of choice for the “me in Washington” photo. I spent an entire day at the gallery with one of Washington’s most brilliant minds…Melissa Taylor, a talented playwright and artist.
I also had a chance to meet up with the incredible Jessica Cain. The stars were lined perfectly, and I got to introduce my favorite singer/actress to my favorite playwright…who knows what kind of wonderful trouble can happen with that kind of meeting of the minds? Our time together will be a blog post of it’s own.
Thank you EVERYONE for your support during this trip.
