Happy Monday, friends! I hope your weekend was blessed. We had a break in our temperatures and the weekend proved to be absolutely beautiful! Not sure you could ask for more lovely weather here in the middle of August….and the timing was perfect as we had several outdoor events. We attended a wedding on Saturday afternoon and the reception was outside. So glad that was not last Saturday as I am sure everyone would have melted but not this weekend.
On Saturday evening, we went downtown to meet my brother. We were celebrating his birthday (which was yesterday). Did I get a photo of the birthday boy? Of course not (sigh) but I did get a few fun shots of downtown. With such great weather, there was no shortage of “action” – and boats!! – at the harbor. We walked along the water before dinner. There were several really large boats but, after dinner, a yacht had pulled in and all I can say is, “wow!” It seemed awkward to take a photo (of the boat or the staff that was working topside) but it was huge.
The restaurant is located across the harbor from the Kennedy Center. I took my photo early on but later in the evening, the Center was illuminated in the yellow and blue colors of Ukraine. It was very pretty. We had a delicious meal and a wonderful evening….and we even maneuvered the route back to the highway after we missed one turn. It’s a labyrinth downtown but we managed. The Lincoln Memorial looked so pretty at night and I tried to snap a photo as we were driving by. The steps were full of folks enjoying a pretty summer night!
Here’s to a good week ahead. I hope you will stop by again on Wednesday or Friday. Here’s a “thought for your week” to take with you. I’ve been rehearsing this one quite a bit lately. For what it is worth:
God is looking for my availability…..not my ability
