Washington 2021

In July 2021, Ellen attended a weekend craft event in Baltimore. While Ellen was in classes during the day, I spent a couple of days in Washington, DC.

On Friday, I went to the National Zoo. A highlight was the Giant Panda. There were two, including a "baby." However, it was a fairly hot, humid day, so the baby had found a nice shady place in the trees to chill. It was hard to spot, and nearly impossible to get a photo.

On Saturday, I just took a few photos around the National Mall, before returning to Baltimore in time for dinner with Ellen and some of her weekend classmates.
