National Arboretum - Part I

This is a mini crab-apple tree (above). It has been growing since 1905.

I took a trip to the National Arboretum with my friends.
It has been on my list of places to visit for a while now.
These pictures are from the bonsai exhibit - mini trees and forests - I loved it!
Some of the little leaves were just starting to change.

Taste of Georgetown

We went to the Taste of Georgetown a couple of weeks ago.
Several of the nice restaurants located in Georgetown let you sample their food.
Cafe Bonaparte was the best thing I tried.
Their crepes are simply DIVINE. Wow.
We also stood in line forever to get these cupcakes (forever) and
to my disappointment were merely cupcakes ... and
I found out cupcakes don't compare to dessert crepes in my book.
These are pictures I took while waiting in line forever.

Sausalito, CA

We spent a day walking around Sausalito and then made the drive for a quick trip to the beach.
The weather turned out to be so nice - and cooler at the beach.
I did have the bird on my arm, and yes it did eat seeds out of my mouth - it shocked even me.
It was a great day - it is always great to meet up with friends. A big thanks to you guys - I had a great time!

A Day at the Park SF

The view looking one way (above), and the view looking the other way (below)

We spent a day relaxing and picnicking at the park on my recent trip
to San Fran to visit my best friend.
When I got back I received the sweetest voice mail from little C - we became best buddies.
