This weekend was sandwiched between Hugh’s baseball games Friday and Sunday, so we spent Saturday staycationing around town.
After some chores we headed down to the Mall along with every other human on the planet, but we ventured past the usual suspects — Natural History, American History, Air & Space — and landed at the National Museum of the American Indian.
It was a little dark and a lot crowded, so we just perused some exhibits before heading outside to the Living Earth Festival which included this woman cooking some sort of corn + beef stew.
Eating hot stew outside on a hot day isn’t necessarily ideal, but it was delicious. And it was followed by our last stop of Staycation Saturday — cold beer and boat-watching at Cantina Marina.
Sitting in the open air top floor you can almost forget you’re in the nation’s capital and instead feel like you’re officially on vacation. That is until you turn to the right and the scaffold-covered eyesore that is the Washington Monument is looming beyond the harbor.
