I’m pretty sure the rest of Washington would agree, the weather was glorious this past Saturday. These random sun-shinning days have become some of my favorite because they’ve allowed me to explore the capital more. The following are some of my new favorites:
1. Rock Creek Park
I’ve been running in the District since I came here in August, but for some reason, I’ve never tested out this trail and, boy, was I missing out. Based on this, I’m pretty sure I ran the Rock Creek Trail (South) portion, and it was absolutely gorgeous thanks to the creek and all the trees. Plus, it’s always a lot more fun to run outside while others are moving and grooving, too.
2. Pleasant Pops
Though I’ve come across their pop-up stand at the Dupont Circle Farmer’s Market, I had never been to their brick & mortar shop. Unfortunately, I decided to go on Sunday, when it was a tad too cold for a popsicle, but I’m looking forward to circling back their come summertime.
3. Farmers, Fishers, Bakers (specifically the apple-walnut-raisin bread)
GO and get yourself the Farmer’s Daughter’s Sandwich — even if you’re not a vegetarian, you won’t be disappointed. Just check out the parenthesis above for reassurance (IT WAS SO TASTY.).
