It has been a whirlwind of travel. I drove to and fro home for 8 hours each way to work two days. Around hour six, I forget what I occupied myself with at hour two.
I caught up with friends and new fawns.
I’m not sure if one of these two got lost, but this is what I heard for an hour at 0200, my second night home.
Then it was back home for a day of work at the lighthouse before I flew from Bar Harbor to Washington, DC.
Although I never saw Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse from the air, I spotted Seguin Island off the mouth of the Kennebec River. I find it fun to see a place I know so well from the air.
I stayed in Chinatown where there is a diagonal crosswalk, how does that work? I tried it and made it to the opposite corner unscathed.
I saw this rooftop garden from my room. Landscaped hills on the roof! It turned out to be a building affiliated with landscape design.
I relied on public bikes for transportation and visited the Portrait gallery, where my favorite painting was not a portrait.
I rode around the Mall and visited the African American Museum and the Museum of the Native American. The exhibits often brought me to tears but the food at the cafes soothed me.
Of course, best of all and the purpose of this visit was to see my daughter in her hometown.
