Another Non-Jewelry Post

Yep, this blog is a result of my jewelry business.  And nope, this post is not about jewelry…again!    This will be mostly pictures and very little writing.

My husband and I went into to Washington, D.C. this Saturday morning for sunrise over the Tidal Basin which is surrounded by blossoming cherry trees. It is almost impossible to take a bad picture and even at 6:30 AM the sidewalks were crowded.  Beauty is every where!  I did some serious whittling from the 95 photos I took.

Without further ado…

A few of the monuments…

These next pictures are different perspectives of the Basin.  The crowds will be pretty evident!

Love the reflection of the blossoms on the water

Beauty, plain and simple, with the Jefferson Memorial behind.

These last ones are “because I could”.  They either amused me or I just liked them!

Awesome blue sky with jet contrail.

Even mundane signs get dressed up with blossoms!  :)

Ducky!  Just passing through.

Thank you for bearing with me.  I just wish I could capture how overwhelming the whole Tidal Basin is, rather than just bits and pieces.

Is there anything you do once a year just because you can’t resist?
