I am back from an awesome vacation in Washington DC, and Steve and I had a blast. We saw so many things, but I am sure we didn’t even scratch the surface. We were gone for just about a week, but I wanted to share some of the fun here since it was not easy to blog while on gone I did get some knitting in (I finished 1 of the vacation socks) that will be a post for another day.
We had some major flight delays leaving Chicago (about 2 hours late on top of already being a red eye flight) but made it to DC and checked into hotel around 3:30 am. Luckily we didn’t have plans to get up early on Saturday, but we did hit the DC101 Chili Cook-Off Concert which was pretty awesome, lots of great bands and good food, but shockingly not much chili, maybe 1 food vendor had it, not sure what was up with that?! Anyways we enjoy some good music and got some good sun!
The next few days were full of sight seeing, We checked out the major things like the Capital, White House, All the Monuments at the National Mall, Ford Theater, National Archives, Natural History Museum, Air and Space Museum, National Art Galleries, and also checked out the International Spy Museum. So many things, but way to much to share about each, so just a few photos follow.
We also checked out the Zoo, Can’t beat that, one of the 2 places in the US to see panda bears! Which was just awesome to see them in person, I also made friends with some lovely animals, in particual, an ALPACA!
All in all it was an awesome trip, We figured out that we walked over 51 miles in the 7 days we walked about, which doesn’t sound like much but some days that we 10+ miles we def felt when we kicked out feet up for the night. I also got to nab a skein of souvenir yarn from Looped Yarn Works which if you are ever in DC is well worth the visit, great shop and super wonderful staff. I will share more about knitting progress and the goodies I picked up later this week as this post is already getting long.
Until next time, Keep on Knitting Rain or Shine!
