The second fun activity we did in DC (not including the food adventures) was Dumbarton Oaks. Dumbarton Oaks is a mansion and garden which used to be owned by the Bliss family, who turned the property over to Harvard U. in 1940. It's a gorgeous place that must be visited if you're in the DC area during the spring, summer, and early autumn. It's open from 2 PM to 5 PM all year. The museum portion is free; regular admission to the gardens is $8 and $5 for students, seniors, and babies.
If you recall from my DC Part 1 post, my camera had some issues so the following photos are from my iPhone. I also didn't take quite as many photos as I wanted to because my phone battery was dying and we needed to book an Uber back home (I'll talk about Ubers in a separate post) so I had to be quite conservative. Nonetheless, I think I captured some decent shots.
Dumbarton Oaks is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from Georgetown.
So after D. Oaks, I met up with a friend who I've known since grammar school. Isn't that crazy? She's living in the DC area now and she graciously invite D and I to a cool new apartment tour and a fun happy hour. Don't we look cute? I should find our class photo from third grade and do a little side-by-side.
