I spent the triumphant end of November and start to December in our nation's capital (with 'our' here meaning any of my readers who live in the United States). I went down for the weekend to visit my aunt and uncle who live just outside the DC metro area. It was all too short a visit, but lovely to see them and catch up. And overall it was a very relaxing weekend, or at least as relaxing as any weekend that involves 8 hours on a bus can be. Here are a couple of photos of the weekend (taken by and selected for this blog by my usual photographer).

|Mount Vernon as viewed through some sort of glass surface? If instragram has taught us anything it's that slight opacity does equal artisticness.|
|Mount Vernon as viewed through myself and my aunt and uncle. I'm not sure why I look so in pain here, but rest assured by trip to Washington's home was quite pleasant.|
|This tulip poplar was planted by GW himself in 1785!|
|To get the true creepiness of this concave image of Washington, you need to know that in real life it's a good 10 feet tall.|
