Washington Monument - December 2010
It had snowed a couple of inches before we arrived in our nation's Capital on Friday...........but roads and sidewalks were cleared and the atmosphere was definitely full of holiday cheer despite the nip in the air.
December evening 2010 - Washington D.C.
This is the apartment building where I lived in the 60's - top floor left hand corner. I looked out toward beautiful old bustling Georgetown. I walked a few blocks to my office. I did not own a car. I bought groceries in a tiny corner shop across the street. I loved the city life after growing up at the English seaside.............but I was definitely homesick at times. I was twenty and full of dreams.
The old canal running through Georgetown.
Anthropologie's Georgetown shop displaying pretty Winter outfits................style for big city streets.
Bright Christmas windows.
The Capitol dome across the frozen Potomac River from our hotel window in Crystal City, Virginia.
Always fun to revisit the past...........memories are precious.
