Field trip! Hains Point
Yesterday I organized a picnic at this really cool statue called "The Awakening" that I wanted to see before it gets moved (it's been at Hains Point--an peninsula near the monuments which overlooks the Potomac--for 27 years now and has just been sold).
It was your classic good idea, bad idea scenario.
Good idea: organizing a picnic at a wickedly cool statue with friends and coworkers.
Bad idea: realizing that getting there involves an hour and a half walk in the sun. Each way.
Holy sunstroke, batman! I spent the rest of my Saturday night shivering with a migraine, feeling pukey, and cursing my English genes.
The coworkers didn't show (unsurprisingly), but I did end up having a splendid time with friends Emma and Andrew, and Vianney.
Here are a few pictures before I get the rest (most of them were taken with Vianney's camera; I'll add 'em when I get 'em):
