A Day Worth Remembering
Where did it come from? This picture perfect day that replaced the cold and wet with warm and dry. Without knowing what the weather would be like, weeks ago I had scheduled for today my favorite spring outing with one of my best friends. The change in weather was a welcome surprise.
For as long as I can remember I have loved paddling around on the Tidal Basin in those little boats. Especially on a week day when hardly anyone else is around. There were probably half a dozen boats out on the slightly rippled water, but each of us had plenty of room.
After paddling almost all the way across, we rewarded ourselves with a picnic lunch. I traded half a lox and avocado sandwich for half a turkey and Swiss. There were carrots, cookies, a banana, and chocolate. We certainly ate well.
Today was especially nice because the slight breeze kept us cool and gave the water a more interesting surface. Although the cherry trees were slightly past their prime, remnants of pink petals still lingered in the bright green foliage.
As if our boat trip wasn’t enough, we want back to my friend’s house to start on the second movement of a Bach sonata. That was like icing on an already delicious cake!
