This year's photos were taken from Hains Point, a spit of land separating the Washington Channel and the Anacostia River from the Potomac River. We walked all the way around the 3.2 mile Point after eating breakfast under a cherry tree and waiting for the sun to rise. This is a view of National Airport across the Potomac. How calm it is.
My favorite photo of the day. Sunrise was about 45 minutes earlier. Great light.
The trees on the Point are mostly of one type of cherry. Thus most blossoms were just a day or two past peak. One big wind and they would all blow away.
Not just cherry trees here. Some gorgeous willows just leafing out. I've got a soft spot for willow trees having grown up with one in our backyard.
By the time we left, there were many people out walking, biking, jogging, fishing, skating. We'd spent three hours out there and even though I'd brought breakfast with us, we stopped in McLean for pancakes (for me) and corned beef hash (for DH.) Lovely, lovely day.
Did a stitch a bit this weekend? Nope. Even though I had good intentions. All these cherry blossoms just make me want to work on Stars even more.
