This was a whirlwind weekend, taking us from Philadelphia to Delaware to DC and back again to NYC! Oh my. On the way down to DC on Saturday, we stopped at The Wellwood in Charleston, Maryland for a giant basket of crabs. They set up a sheet of kraft paper on our table and gave us tiny knives and wooden mallets. Then we got to smash those crabs! I'd never done it before, and it was so fun. I'm sure there are lots of great places to visit for crabs in this part of Maryland, but the Wellwood was excellent!
On Monday, we went to the Battery Park movie theater and got to hang out in lovely air conditioning for the afternoon. By the time we came out, the weather was cooler and a little breezy. We took a walk all through Battery Park City. In our four years here, I don't think we ever visited this part of the city. It was so nice to see the sail boats in the water and pretty gardens along the path. I almost forgot how mad I was at NYC earlier that day when I hauled my laundry down the street and then discovered I was one quarter short and had to go back home for more change. Almost.
