After going months without accomplishing any bucket list items, I visited two places, the Hirshhorn Museum and Eastern Market, in one sunny Saturday! My good friend from college was in town for an event at the Hirshhorn, and we explored DC together afterwards. The lure of art, time to catch up with a friend from college, and brunch was enough to entice me onto the metro.
H and I don’t know most of the rules of hockey, but we had a blast cheering for the Caps, eating suite mac and cheese, and eavesdropping on the guys behind us who seemed to understand the game.
Seeing the cherry trees downtown when they’re in full bloom is a classic DC activity. Even though I’m behind schedule on my bucket list with nine activities and five months left, I knew a quick trip to the Tidal Basin would be worth it.
The hike at Harper’s Ferry was the second bucket list item I tackled, even though it’s an hour away, because I knew it would be a great fall activity and H was as excited about it as I was.
I completed my first bucket list item by visiting the pandas at the National Zoo.
I put together a DC bucket list! I included twelve activities, so I’ll do about one item every month.
