Howdy All,

This former blog entry is now updated... As mentioned in the last update we are parked at the Cherry Hill RV Park in College Park MD. Because we did not have a toad we requested a space close to the front of the park and the park folks did provide a good location for us.

Monday, June 8, Day 10 of 32, we arrived late in the afternoon.

Tuesday June 9, Day 11 of 32,

We stayed in the park during the day to get familiar with it and to further recover from the food poisoning we had last Wednesday. In the late afternoon, we ventured out for our first use of the Metro bus/train system and went downtown to the Mt Vernon exit, and met our daughter and her finance' for dinner. We found a good Japanese restaurant within a short distance from the Metro Station. After dinner, we walked 2-3 blocks to their new apartment and picked up a Honda Accord we are planning to bring back to California. Our daughter and finance' both decided they didn't need a car in DC. Both of them have great jobs and can walk to work and the car was just another expense for them. So we'll probably make it a toad.

Wednesday, June 10, Day 12 of 32

We took a 2 hour Segway Tour of the Mall... our first time using a Segway and I think they are great. The Segway toured lasted 2hours, some of the sites we went by is the White House, Washington Monument, National Mall, Smithsonian, Capital Building, and a number of other sites. Our feet got a little sore standing for the two hours, but the we covered a lot of distance. Afterwords we had a nice lunch at Ole Ebbitt Grill located on 15th and I streets (just across from the Treasury Department), The Old Ebbitt Grill, Washingtonï¾’s oldest and most historic saloon in Washington and was founded in 1856. It is a large place and was packed. It has a large old wood double sided bar, and supposedly, the Who's Who of Washington continue to come and go.

... and boy, did it rain this afternoon, just when I was going to the grocery store... lots of rain... we are used to Palm Springs CA weather where it is dry 10 months a year. While at the grocery store we located an Italian restaurant called Mama Lucia (sounds Italian doesn't it :o ) and the food was very good.

Thursday, June 11, Day 13 of 32,

A relaxed day today as we prepared to spend the evening with our daughter Alexi and her finance' Dan. We met them at their apartment which is close to the Capital. We drove around some with Lexi and Dan acting as our tour guides. We ended at an Ethiopian Restaurant where we had a great dinner and then we strolled through a large Whole Foods Grocery Store where we bought some exotic beer. We then dropped off Lexi and Dan at a birthday party planned for Lexi and came back to the RV. It was a very nice evening... because of Lexi's travels over the past few years, this was the first time in many years Trudy could be with Lexi on her birthday. :lol:

... that's it for now... we have tourist stuffed planned for the next several days.


Dale, Trudy, and Doug
