Well, we have still not made it to the post office to apply for our passports. Bob had been planning on taking today off, but he ended up needing to go to work today. It's just as well it will have to wait a few more days, since we still need Drew and Bob's birth certificates, and since it would undoubtedly have taken much longer than I was expecting (that relentless optimism again, LOL). And we had other plans today! Bob's sister Ann drove up this morning from Richmond, bringing with her Jasmine, her almost 3 year old granddaughter!
I for one also really enjoyed walking up and down the little Georgetown sidestreets, looking at the neat old houses. So much character! I would love to see inside some of them!
After getting the van safely extricated from the tight parking spot, we headed over to Ft. Myer for an unplanned stop at the bustling tourist attraction that is their gas station. We also looked at Arlington Cemetery, which you can see from the post, so it was a good opportunity. For me it felt really weird to be at Ft. Myer but not going to the commissary!
