Back from a Whirl Wind Tour
No more to be said than the Wedding in Richmond that we went to was lovely and more delightful than that was seeing our daughters and our son – in – law. [I just love DC] ~ Besides not having to cook, clean, mow, weed eat etc for almost a week was Heavenly. The shopping and restaurants were yummy, delicious and tastefully executed. The company was the best as always! The newly weds soon to be home is sooooooooooooooo adorable! Almost a year ago our daughters took me to Jaleo’s, this time my Sweetie had a chance to try the cuisine, and he liked it. Jaleo offers bite-sized appetizers, which makes sharing the thing to do. The Duck leg confit nectarine sauce is still a fav of mine. They were out of another favorite, grilled quail with honey alioli and rosemary sauce. We did seconds on the sautéed spinach, pine nuts, raisins and apples. Some New places: The Uptown Theater and the Seminary. A Perfect place to see Pirates of the Caribbean 3 This theater opened in 1933, the Uptown is the last movie palace in Washington, DC still showing first run films and was the location of the world premiere of '2001: A Space Odyssey' in April, 1968. We had a driving tour of the Seminary and on another trip we will certainely do the Walking Tour of Forest Glen Seminary.The Seminary was an early 20th century school that features a unique collection of architecture from around the world (including an Italian Villa, a Japanese Pagoda, a Dutch windmill, etc). Of course I had to go see Eastern Market, knowing full well that it is not functioning as it had before the fire. It was like visiting an old friend. A big problem at the market right now is that most people in the DC area think that the market burned to the ground! And that they are not open! Au contraire! The building itself is fine, the structure very much in tact. They have started to re-build the roof and have broken ground on a new temporary structure for the food vendors who lost their businesses inside the South Hall. The market is open every weekend and thriving! Back to Reality??? ~ OH shucky darn, but as always Good to be Home! Before I get back to sharing the advancement of Sarah’s Pond, there are some pictures just ‘Cause!
