After Balzac

The trip to DC last week was a delight. It was a real breath of fresh air and it was so much easier on mind, body and wallet to do it by bus. In some ways I wish we'd had more time but in others it was plenty. By the time 4:45 rolled around and we needed to be heading back toward the bus our dogs were tired. And our feet too! (And the funny just keeps on coming.)

Our second stop on this hit parade was the sculpture garden. Much of it was blocked off for construction but this was our first view as we descended into the garden and probably my favorite piece of art the entire day.

There are more pictures and stories to come but I thought we could just do a little at a time.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.


  1. I've never been to the sculpture garden in DC. I've walked by bits of it, but never gone in.

    We're all okay - how are YOU?!

    Is that the classic "Empty Suit?"

    I haven't been to Washington, D.C., in ages. Long ago I had a very romantic trip there, and it is so poignant in my memory, I try not to think about it.
