In an attempt to get away from the kids and spend some time together, my husband and I took two nights at a hotel in Georgetown this weekend. Being the simple folks that we are, the highlights of the weekend (aside from the wonderful food) was the walking we did. The first night we walked to a restaurant at Ten Penh, (1000 Pennsylavanial Ave.) and ended up walking down by the monuments, primarily the Lincold Memorial on our way back. On Saturday, we stayed closer to Georgetown, walking along the C&O Canal and down to the waterfront along the Potomac River. That night, we ate at an Ethiopian restaurant (Zed's). Having eaten quite a bit, we opted to walk somewhere else for dessert. We saw pies being advertised at Baked and Wired, but by the time we got there, the pies were gone and we had some very rich brownies. With all the sugar in our system, we decided to stroll down to the waterfront once more. We could see the Kennedy Center in the distance, so our walk led us there. We roamed the Hall of States and the Hall of Nations. We also went up to the Terrace which had a marvelous view of the Lincoln Memorial, the river, and Georgetown. As we were headed back to our hotel, the magic hour came, and both the sky and the river turned a lovely red over.
