(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: A September day out in DC

These are a couple months old now, but I wanted to share them because this was a beautiful September Saturday in DC and it was spent biking and laughing with new friends.

Embarrassed to admit, but before moving to DC I thought Politico was purely an online venture

Dupont Circle

I biked with my former housemates over to the National Arboretum - it was a calm sanctuary in a city that is anything but

We weren't expecting to come upon Parthenon-esque columns, but there they were!

The columns were originally used at the East Portico of the Capitol building in 1828, but due to a design error were removed and only placed at the National Arboretum in the 1980's

We tried to race leaves into the relecting pool but they weren't very cooperative
