I have not posted a picture in a while of another place that I like to go, so I thought I would change that. This is a picture that was taken during the cherry blossom festival in DC. There are benches all around the tidal basin to just sit back and enjoy the view. Of coarse the blossoms are only in peak for about two weeks out of the year, but if you can get up there to see them it is well worth it, they are gorgeous! If you want to check out some more info on the festival go here. It really is a great festival, there is music, food and beautiful blossoms!
If not, you can go any other time of the year for a nice quiet place to relax and curl up with a good book!
