Andrea and I always went down to see the cherry blossoms. We would drive around first and then he would park while I got out to walk among the trees for a while. This year I was on my own. I took the Metro down and walked over to the Tidal Basin from the Smithsonian Metro Station. What a crowd! But the trees were beautiful. This may be my last year to see them, however, unless someone offers to drive me down on a day when most people are working!
