Sunset Over the Potomac

It was a long drive from Florida back the DC. And the last fifty miles can be dreadful. So we decided to get off the packed bumper to bumper freeway and head towards highway 1. It was the best decision we could have made and the time of the day was perfect. As we passed by Mount Vernon, we headed towards home. We've been this way many times, but not at this time of the day at this time of the year. There were a bunch of cars heading to a parking lot by the river. And now I know why! It was simply beautiful watching the winter sun sink in to the Potomac River. George Washington must have loved sitting on his porch witnessing the same magnificence. It took the stress and strain off the last hour of driving home after a long week away. Now the short work week starts. I'll have to remember what I just saw when I walk in to the office.
