Along the Potomac

A few weeks back, when the days were a little longer we took the kids to this quiet little corner of the base for some outdoors time. While we’re not really enthused about living in the DC area most of the time, it’s getting to watch sunsets like this, the kind that make the hustle and bustle fade away for just a bit, make it all seem more bearable. When I drive around this area, the land of congestion and strip malls, I can’t help but wonder what the founding fathers saw in this place, why here? But then we come across these places, where the beauty and wildness hasn’t been choked out of the landscape by McMansions, and it all makes perfect sense. This is a beautiful place, we just have to look a little harder.
