Being a compendium of thoughts as we drive and drive and....
March 26 day two
While DC cherry blossoms get the press, Kenwood, a neighborhood in Bethesda near Steve’s, is lined with cherry trees. It was a beautiful morning and we took the two dogs (Steve’s and Rebecca’s) for a walk. It was fabulous but let’s just say NOT the serene contemplation of nature’s beauty that one might hope for with two dogs to control. Many folks were out walking, taking photos (from iPhone to professional rigs), some young women dolled up in blossom themes frocks, and one enterprising resident selling lemonade and other refreshments. Later in the day, I’m sure it was chaos.
Brunch with Steve then the drive to Charlottesville. Years ago Ed made Laura a mixed tape… that was our soundtrack for the drive.
Our inn is right off campus, so we walked over to admire Jefferson’s vision. And UVA’s sincere acknowledgment of the critical role of enslaved people in the university’s history.
Champagne and jazz and books in the Oakhurst Inn parlor before dinner…

We are so enjoying your trip. I remember the cherry blossoms on my 8th grade trip to DC. Steve went to UVA and we have been there frequently for reunions. Can’t wait until your next entry! We are returning to Boston this Friday. You both are smiling in every picture..so far so good! Enjoy! Xo Lee and Steve
