Here are 12 pictures from my exciting Urban Adventure!
I left Y's apartment bright and early (ok, fine, when you're unemployed 9:30AM *is* bright and early). I left his building and was greeted by gorgeous sky and crepe myrtles.
I cut through the park on the way to the metro station. This graffiti always makes me laugh.
L'Enfant Plaza Metro Station is probably much busier earlier in the day. Jiggling the camera makes it look busy though.
I love the (relatively) new covers Metro has installed over the open escalators.
I went to the National Gallery of Art. First to the East Wing to see the Treasures of Afghanistan exhibit. Then, I wandered through the West Wing.
Even the ancient Romans were touched by the Flying Spaghetti Monster's noodly appendage.
I have a thing for Saints ...
After leaving the NGA, I wandered up the the Capitol. I love the Grotto, a octagonal brick building with a fountain.
After relaxing in the shade for a bit, I walked to Jaleo on 7th and E for sangria and tapas. Best Sangria in DC. Srsly.
Then, home to take photos of my latest pottery.
Followed by a nap.
Then, another summery beverage (blueberry-infused gin with lemon italian soda).
The rest of my evening will be filled with knitting and DVDs.
Oh, and a board meeting at 9PM (ugh).
Check out the other photos from my day on Flickr.
