D.C. Cherry Blossom Kayak Tour

IMG_4325I’ve been MIA for months, but better late than never! Since moving to the D.C. area, I’ve been dyinggg to romp around the cherry blossoms! This past April we beat the crowds and decided to see the cherry blossoms from the water. It was the best day ever! We left from the Key Bridge Boathouse in Gerogetown and within minutes we were paddling alongside the Lincoln Memorial.IMG_4229  Seeing the cherry blossoms from the water is definitely the way to go! As we were paddling we saw tons and tons of cars in standstill traffic and hoards of people just trying to make their way to see them. We were just happily paddling along enjoying the view.

IMG_4233IMG_4247 I took about 24038420 different pictures of the blossoms, but I’ll spare you.
IMG_4255IMG_4293 All in all the tour took about three hours and boy were my arms tired! I thought I was going to have to be towed back to shore haha. but really. Start training now.

 

Saturday in Georgetown

ImageOne Saturday Steve and I walked from his brother’s house in Clarendon all the way to Georgetown. It took longer than expected to reach our destination, but we came across an explosion of yarn bombs as we were walking through Rosslyn, VA!ImageAt least half a dozen trees were COVERED in yarn. It was so bright and cheery!ImageEven the street lights were yarn bombed! I can’t imagine how many people came together to create all of it. I mean I’ve been knitting the same pair of socks since 2010.ImageWe eventually made it to Georgetown and shopped in all of the humongous and beautiful stores! Aside from the three story Anthro, my favorite store was Paper Source. They had the prettiiieeessstttt paper goods and all sorts of cute ways to keep your life organized. There were TONS of people everywhere and I had to lol at the line wrapped around the building for Georgetown Cupcakes. Seriously people, why wait in line outside in the rain for an hour for a cupcake!?!? Smh. ImageWe rested our Kim K feet (achey and swollen like 7 mo preggers Kim Kardashian in 5 inch heels) down by the water and took some glamor shots.ImageWe had a cheeseburger snack (I’m telling you, we walked A LOT) at Good Stuff Eatery, Chef Spike from Top Chef’s awesome burger/fry/shake joint. It was delicious and just the fuel we needed to make the trek back to Clarendon. Let’s just pretend we didn’t have pasta in vodka sauce immediately when we got home…
