When my husband travels for business, I am on my own for the day. I'm pretty comfortable with that but if I'm unfamiliar with the area I will do a little research before we leave and make a tentative plan for my days.
Last week we made a quick trip to DC. I had decided before we left that I wanted to check out the Gardens. The Smithsonian has eleven gardens according to one of the employees...who knew? My favorite has always been the Haupt Garden behind the Castle. In another couple of weeks these trees will be filled with pink magnolia flowers, it will be gorgeous.
It was still a little early for many of the flowers but there were some blooms and buds, a promise of better things to come. After I checked out a couple of Gardens I walked around and took photos. It was cool but comfortable.
Before we headed home we had dinner at a wonderful little neighborhood fish restaurant close to where a certain musician lives. Our youngest son, was able to join us for dinner the night we arrived and left, don't you love it when things work out like that?
What are some areas of interest where you live, and do you have any favorite destinations?
