I'm visiting my parents on their new houseboat on the Potomac, which is why I've been absent for several days. The internet is not up yet so I'm sending this from my newly-downloaded Blogger app--and crossing my fingers that it works! Assuming it does, I will be doing some wondering as to why I didn't do it sooner.
The houseboat is just beautiful. My Dad did all of the design himself and it's both functional and lovely. Quite contemporary, very light and airy, and not claustrophobic at all! As you can see from these quick iPhone shots, they have quite a view too-- the Jefferson and the Washington Monument. Not to mention the river itself, with its ducks and sailboats, and the quirky marina community that surrounds them. It's such a fun, vibrant little part of the city.
I'll be home in a few days and back to my regular blogging. I'm off to see the Pentagon 9/11 memorial this morning, then meeting my mom on Capitol Hill for some lunch and shopping. I hope you're having as much fun this week as we are!
