A Morning Walk

For a hot second, we considered attending the Inauguration yesterday. After all, we likely will not be stationed in this area by the time the next inauguration rolls around. But upon thinking of the logistics associated with being stuck on the National Mall for hours upon hours (along with almost a million other people) with a 3-year-old and me being a pregnant woman that throws up  at the mere whiff of Asian cuisine, we decided to play it safe at watch the events unfold from the comfort of our own house. And chances are, we will be stationed in the Washington DC area again later on so the opportunity will likely present itself again at some point.

Before turning on the television, we headed outside for a brisk walk along the greenway trail that is behind our house. One of the selling features for choosing this townhouse to rent was the private wooded access to miles upon miles are gorgeous trails, complete with lakes, rivers, and creeks. The weather has been fairly mild this winter (no snow yet (sigh), but rainy so being able to go for a walk on the trail was a welcomed treat.

One thing that we will like about being stationed in the Washington DC area is the sheer amount of people enjoying the outdoors. There are always runners, walkers, bikers, and pick-up games of softball/soccer wherever you turn. It’s refreshing to see active people, regardless of the temperature. Although, the snow is welcome to arrive at any moment. I’m craving the white stuff and will probably go all Tony Montana on it when it finally arrives.

One thought on “A Morning Walk

  1. This has been a mild winter! We promised the boys snow when we switched coasts and so far we haven’t been able to keep our promise…. What an awesome “feature” to come with your townhouse! Access to stuff like that is almost mandatory when you have boys 🙂
