We’ve spent a few days in DC checking out some museums, hanging around the National Mall, and touring George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate (something we wanted to do last year, but didn’t have time for). It’s been great. Oh, we also got a chance to have dinner with some of Jake’s friends who used to live in Providence. It was really nice to be in a home, not a hotel or a campsite for an evening. Thanks a lot, James and Nina!

So, mostly we stayed at the camp, doing…camp things. Jake took the big 3 into town for an Amish buggy ride at one point (which was apparently more like a horse-drawn wagon with 20 other tourists, not so much a buggy). Otherwise, it was camp stove – grilling raisin toast and eggs, campfire, camp singing (Jake got a “Little Martin” guitar for this roadtrip), camp playground, nighttime stories and tent sleeping. Oh, and the camp coffee was amazing, thanks to Jake’s excellent camp coffee grinder and pour over equipment. Something about drinking it in the open morning air, too – really wonderful.
