Checking out the cherry blossoms

Our Spring Break vacation took us to Washington, DC, and the Atlantic Ocean. During our DC days the cherry trees were in bloom, and looked to be at peak. Our first day in the city was overcast, but that seemed not to blunt the blooms’ color.

I have many more photos from our trip to share, but first I have several posts to write about an afternoon I spent with my older son and our film cameras. But since this is the right time for cherry blossoms, here they are as a preview of sorts of the Spring Break posts to come.

    I spent about 5 years living in Washington DC…always love the cherry blossoms, but good to note that there are some really stunning displays not located in the tourist areas. My girlfriend at the time turned me on to the Kenwood neighborhood, up in Northwest and on the way to Bethesda. The whole area is planted with blossoms! And you can sometimes drive through…beautiful:

    • That’s awesome! Because we got a hotel in Maryland, took the train into DC, and went places on foot, we were going to be relegated to the places we could easily reach. It would have been lovely to drive through Kenwood though!

    What gorgeous photos, Jim! I’ve never made it to DC for the annual cherry blossom festivities, but your post is the next-best thing.
