Summer has long been my least favorite of the seasons. This year is just adding insult to injury, here in Philadelphia. Scorching days. Heavy humidity.
And many thunderstorms. Good thing I like the rain.
Kasy and I had initially planned a wonderful week-long vacation that involved canoeing and camping in the Pine Barrens. Lack of rain, in the weeks preceding our vacation, forced us to nix those plans, since the Wading River (our canoe location of choice) was dry in some of the upper sections. We fleetingly toyed with the idea of biking to Cape May for a few days, but the forecast of 7 days of 100+ degree heat forced us to abandon those plans as well.
So, with just a couple days notice, we found ourselves in a hostel in Washington DC with a list of museums to check out. It was still a scorcher down there, but we were bopping around from museum to museum and found it to be not so bad.
I still have a bunch of photos to go through, but here are some shots from our 3 day jaunt in the Nation’s capital.
I hope you are all enjoying the season and keeping cool!
