Ridin' Shotgun

We took the dogs to the vet today for some regular check-ups.  Barbie drove, so this is the view I had for the entire drive (both ways).

Wildlife In The Yard…Well, Sort Of

When taking the dogs out into the back yard tonight I noticed a small toad on his way to our pond.  Some may think that this is no big deal, but it is a sign of the good health of our pond so it was worth noting.  :-)

The National Harbor

For a few years now, I have heard about the National Harbor complex.  Most of what I have heard is a mix of "who would go there?"  and "it's so far away!"

As you would imagine, neither of these sentiments drew me out to make my own assessment. However, when a conference was being held there I suddenly had reason to check it out.  Below are a few pictures that I took while there, and I must say that the Gaylor hotel which operates the complex is indeed as big as it looks here.
