I grew up off and on in the DC area. I have been to many of the sites in DC….and now with Rich’s brother living in the DC are for the past several years, we have been able to bring the kids there to see the area as well. Rich and I were actually married in the area over 30 years ago.
We had unnaturally warm weather while we were visiting and so spent some time outside each day. One of the afternoons we spent some time walking around the Washington Monument and some of the monuments adjacent to it. The skies were a perfect cloudy mess for photographers. It allowed the reflections of the skies to really bounce off the reflection pool and the other bodies of water. We found some awesome holly trees and with the warm weather, the cherry blossoms were confused and some were blooming in late December!
Here are a few photos from one of our walks in Leesylvania State Park, near where my brother and sister-in-law live in Woodbridge, VA.
