Evening in DC

Oh how I wish I had brought my tripod!

The weather forecast predicted cold and damp weather, so I decided not to bring a tripod – I wasn’t going to want to hang around in the cold taking pictures. Now, here it is, nearly 70. . . . oh well, it is a lovely evening anyway.

We begin with dinner at Café Atlantico. This is one of my favorite places and, since the night before Thanksgiving is a slow night, we enjoy both a fabulous dinner and an opportunity to learn more about our food from our well-informed waiter.

The air is almost balmy when we leave the restaurant – it feels like a spring evening – so we take a leisurely walk through the mall.

The skating rink is already in place for the season and it is tempting to join them as they languidly circle under the golden lights. But what I really wish is that I had my tripod! It would be a beautiful night to take pictures . . . and the results I’m getting without it are less than stellar.

You’ll just have to take my word for it when I say that it is a picture perfect evening!
