The thing about traveling is, while you’re making all those wonderful memories you also meet the nicest folks along the way. Have you found this to be true on your travels too? Meet my new gal pal and fellow blogger Lisa. She initially met us up for lunch and then actually took two days off of work to show us around DC. Lisa works near The Mall and besides being great company, imparted her knowledge of the history makers we happily visited on our way to the cherry tree’s. Oh !! Get this ! They only began to bloom a couple of days before we were leaving DC !! I was so happy and felt really lucky to have timed it so incredibly. Spring was late to arrive in DC, but how nice of it to wait for Boomdee 😀 Why not come along for our tour with Lisa……
In the past week, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting people whose blogs I follow. It’s been amazing. They came from nearby in Virginia as well as California, Canada, and New Zealand. We began with a lunch party organized by Laurie of Life on the Bike who then whisked Alys, Kelly, and Pauline away to Radford for a few days.
On their return to DC, they wanted to see the Cherry Blossoms down at the Tidal Basin, so I met them at their hotel in Dupont Circle and proceeded to walk their legs off. First we visited Einstein at the National Academy of Sciences. Since I work nearby, Einstein is often a lunch companion in good weather.
