Still Life with Robin: Capitol Unbound!

 By Peggy Robin


I just saw this on Twitter (thanks, Walter Deleon #DCStatehood, whoever you are!)


Quick….before something happens that results in the Capitol being walled off again! Get yourself down there and stroll the grounds while you can! Take your children/guests from overseas/people who’ve never been to DC before and enjoy the open vistas. And you’ve got a brilliant day to do it. Tropical Storm Elsa has passed us by without much more than a good soaking, and now we can enjoy a weekend of sunshine without excessive heat (at least, for a July in DC). As the Capital Weather Gang scores it, a 9 out of a possible 10. “There might be some July days that are nicer, but not many.”  A bit hotter tomorrow, perhaps, but still a good day to enjoy the reopened grounds. One thing this last year has taught us is not to take any day for granted!


Still Life with Robin is published on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Saturdays.
