Amid torrential rains we made the trek to Richmond after work today for a weekend away. On a friend's recommendation, we had dinner at Edo's Squid, a great Italian restaurant tucked away above a sandwich shop. It's unassuming exterior hides a wealth of good food and attentive service.

We gathered with our friends, the Stockers, to cheer on the Nationals this afternoon. It was a lovely, clear day for a game, and especially fun to have the Nats win.
Werth it all!

After we left the Udvar-Hazy we took the opportunity to do some driving through the very lovely Loudoun County, with its rolling green hills and horse-filled pastures. We also stopped in Middleburg, the Horse and Hunt Capital, to enjoy a stroll around this quaint town.
We have enjoyed a few visits to this large addition to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. It has the space to display all sorts of modes of flight, including the newly installed Discovery shuttle. It replaced the previously displayed Enterprise after the shuttle program was retired.

To close our evening we took a cruise up the Potomac from the Alexandria waterfront. Seeing the city and monuments transform from day to night was a thrilling and romantic way to end the day's celebration.
