washington park picnic

July 28, 2014

One night last week Stefan and I took a picnic up to Washington Park for dinner. Washington park is so close to our building, and it is incredible! It's home to the International Rose Test Garden, a Japanese Garden (which we didn't see because it a. closes early and b. costs $10. To quote my own joke that I made as we were walking away from the Japanese Garden entrance, "We might as well just fly to Japan if we're going to spend that kind of money!"), a zoo, an amphitheatre, memorials, tennis courts, soccer fields, picnic tables - anything you could ever want in a giant park above the city! Plus it's all free - even parking, after five o'clock. The only semi-bad news is that we finally made it there way too late in the season and there weren't exactly thousands of fully blooming roses. But we still saw a few beautiful flowers and everything else there was incredibly green so it was worth it. Also this is my first try ever at editing pictures (not counting the good old picnik days all through middle school... and high school..) so nobody make fun of me.









 ^^^ I loved seeing the city poking through the trees! Thanks for the good times, Washington Park.

I love nice looking, well maintain parks (or, urban green spaces as I learned to call them in a college class I took long, long ago). They are a welcomed contrast to the hard, gray cement and steel of the surrounding city.

Allie, it's in Oregon! My husband and I are living in Portland this summer for his internship.

The National Art Gallery, where the works by Paul Cezanne, the father of the modern art movement, inspire me to think about creativity and entrepreneurship. Another favorite is Gravelly Point, a park on the Potomac River, right under the runways at the National Airport http://dujour.com/beauty/bluemercury-founder-barry-beck-interview/.
