    Today the temperature reached 64F, according to my car. Gorgeous day!

    So, I headed out and about. I had only a few more miles before my car was officially broken in, so I headed south to Mount Vernon via the Gee-Dub Parkway. That goes along the Potomac and is a lovely drive. I passed the 1500 mile break-in early on my car and was finally able to drive it like a maniac, and I had fun! Windows open, roof open, and music playing. Life is sweet.

    Then I headed down to Quantico to go to the USMC Museum. I highly recommend that as a stop for those visiting the DC area.

    I suck at taking pictures and these are from my Blackberry. I spent close to three hours there and still wanted to stay longer, but I had to get back for a dinner appointment.

    That is only about an hour and 15 minute drive from where I live.

    Temp is warming up and I cannot wait for the low to mid 70's. Trees in bloom...man I have been suffering from cabin fever.

    You must go. Lots to do and see there.

    My pictures do not do it justice.

    Glad you got out!

    What kind of car did you buy?

    We had a beautiful weekend in Denver, inspiring me to walk to breakfast, but expecting more snow this week.

    I had the wonderful opportunity to sleep all day. Did a 12 hour shift last night.

    Sorry about your forecast. Please keep that snow there, where it belongs?

    A 2009 MINI Cooper, yellow. I can park anywhere and it's a blast. I always enjoyed driving go-carts as a kid. :lol:

    I'll keep that in mind next time I head up that way. I pass it every time we go up there. Suppose to head up that way maybe the first week in April.

    12 hour shift? That sucks

    Sorry about that, R. It was really a beautiful day. A perfect cure for cabin fever.
