We are officially stuck in DC through Sunday. Everything has been canceled and there is no way to get back short of renting a car this very seconding and heading out. One-way car rentals are the absolutely last resort. Plus I heard on the news that all of the bridges over the Hudson close when the winds get over a certain MPH speed. I am not a huge bridge fan to begin with. It doesn't sound like much fun to be a a very high bridge when there are strong winds. I think we will wait it out.
We started out yesterday in Georgetown. We are actually staying in Arlington so it was just a quick walk over the bridge to get to Georgetown. We had hoped to go on the Canal boats but there was a crack in the hull and it was closed.
We did go on a beautiful walk. I definitely could live in a little townhouse down here. I loved watching this little duck. He couldn't decide if he wanted to go for a swim or not.
After doing a little walking tour all over the Georgetown area we stopped for lunch at Le Pain Quotidien. Five of us each got something different. We all sampled and it was great. I think the theme for the weekend could be sharing.
There was no way to leave Georgetown without stopping at Georgetown Cupcakes. I love them to death and was dying to share the experience with my family. The line was actually not that bad. I have seen pictures of it stretching so far you couldn't see the end.
Hint: If you know you are going to be in town, order in advance. All you have to do is place the order before 8pm the night before. You can order any flavor, any amount. You can walk right in to pick them up. I am not going to lie, you feel pretty good going to the front of the line.
In case you didn't know, the best way to eat a cupcake is to cut it in have horizontally and make sandwich. It the optimum ratio of cake to frosting in every bit. Yum!
