Sea Serpents, Anchors and Cherry Blossoms

If you have read my previous few posts, you know that Teddies Spring Show was our objective for the weekend. We loaded the car on Friday in overcast weather. After we had been underway for a bit, it began to rain. And rain. And rain. On Saturday, the day of the show, we had . . . rain. After the show, we drove down to the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. It was still drizzly and a bit too chilly to be outside for too long. Even though the weather was pretty much hopeless, I took some photos that I think capture the atmosphere on the waterfront that night. If it had been a beautiful Spring night, I don’t believe these would have been nearly as interesting.

Sunday dawned with very little change in the weather and we packed our belongings in a fine mist. By the time we reached Washington, DC my husband said it looked like the sun was trying to break through. It wasn’t long after that we enjoyed a complete change of weather to a warm and sunny day that was almost custom-made for the National Cherry Blossom Festival there in DC. Taking a bit of a detour, we drove through downtown Washington, braving the traffic and the crowd. Doing so allowed us to take in the sight of thousands of blooming cherry trees.

My daughter took the following close-up.

I am still aiming to get my photos of the show posted here – soon . . . I hope.
