This past week my daughter and I made a whirlwind trip to Washington, DC to see the cherry blossoms. We were lucky to catch them at their peak, and they did not disappoint.
We began our day with a brief visit to the capitol to see the new statue of Rosa Parks.
If any American deserves a statue, Rosa Parks certainly does!
We love our capitol building! I couldn’t help but snap a couple of other photos.
The statuary is great and we are always amazed at the beauty of the capitol rotunda.
We rented bicycles and road down to the tidal basin to view the cherry blossoms.
You can see in the photo above, that it was very crowded. We had to walk our bikes part of the time.
There I am in the photo above on my rental bike.
The weather was spectacular and a great day for outdoor painting!
We thoroughly enjoyed our quick visit. If you would like more details with better pictures you can visit my daughter’s blog by clicking here.
Have a great week!
