Mothers and Daughters

Washington DC (see the picture)
N 38 52.736 W 077 01.507

Today it is my turn to stay on the boat, while Libby and Jenny are off having a mother-daughter day. They went to the US National Arboreum. Since Jenny is a certified master gardener, that kind of stuff is of great interest to her. Yesterday, we went to the Nature Conservancy's Conservatory (boy what a mouth full, say that three times fast).

We also took Jenny to the Indian museum and the Hirshhorn Museum. Those were repeat trips for us but new to Jenny. They were both fun. Then the three of us went to Union Station for lunch. We all agreed that the restored Union Station beats anything we've seen in Europe.

In any case, I welcome the break from this strenuous daily touring. I'm reading the Sunday paper on the boat, while making a backup of my hard disk. (Having electricity to waste at the dock is another unaccustomed luxury.) I never do backups when running just on battery power.
