Friends in town ...

Friends from SC are in town visiting ... so it's been a wonderfully busy weekend! Yesterday afternoon we headed over to the Sackler Gallery to see this exhibit, which, unfortunately ended on January 7. Dinner was in the fun setting at Buca di Beppo on Connecticut Ave. followed by ice-cream.

Today, we headed out to the Udvar-Hazy Air & Space museum near Dulles -- neat stuff! (Photos to follow when I get a breather, for sure!). Y'all know I was in hog heaven. The observation tower was a bit disappointing, since it was a gray and dreary day, and the planes were landing to the north on Rwy 1L&R, and the tower is north of the airport. It would have been cool if they were landing from the north! Oh well.

Mass and dinner with the community and then the obligatory night tour of the monuments, which is now a standard offering whenever anyone comes up to the District. The Lincoln Memorial, the Korean and Vietnam memorials and tonight the Jefferson Memorial as well.

And all those aircraft making their cool maneuvers on the River Visual approach to Rwy 19 at DCA ... :-)

Now to bed!
