Before I share blue places I'd like to share my daughter's cause... please read below and support her by or share the page to get the word out.

Now that we live in the DC Metro area I realize there is a lot to see and do and I need to do and and see as much as possible.  It is so easy to get comfortable in one's place and postpone being a tourist in our own town, but this time I promised I would not let an event go by without investigating my options.

Museums, monuments, cherry blossoms, old buildings, old towns and new towns, FREE, inexpensive, and Oh My Word that's expensive...we have it all here in DC. So here are a few of our visits with lots of blue skies.  Enjoy!

Beautiful Townhouse in the Dupont Circle area

Getting the mail seems like such a difficult task for a 6 year old :-)

Virginia Railway Express - Train dedicated to work week commuters

University of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, VA

A jogging trail and a creek

Celebrating life at Westminster Choir College

National Museum of Art...that is one Giant door.

DC area building but can't recall what it is...

Ice Skating for the first time ever!

Cherry Blossoms

The U.S. Capitol

  1. I grew up in DC, and you've given me many memories today. Dupont Circle, cherry blossoms, etc. My dad worked at Union Stations on the trains. Thanks for playing Blue Monday.

    Happy 1st Blue Monday, Terie.

  2. Awww that's awesome Sally. I'll be bringing you many memories because I plan on taking full advantage of all there is to offer here!

  3. A great series of shots! I really like the jogging trail and creek.

  4. Some nice shots! It is good to be a tourist in your own city. Visiting here from Blue Monday.

  5. Such a beautiful array of photos! Love the blues. Love the cherry blossoms too! We still have snow, as I speak it is falling like mad! Colorado is missing the Springtime! :-(

    Happy Blue Monday!

  6. Thank you for visiting and admiring my pictures :-) Anne it seems that spring just may never come at this rate. Here it has been pretty cold too. Not liking it at all.
