National Harbor also had a huge London-eye-like structure that Eddie wasn't too keen on because it was high and you stayed up in the air for a long time. I didn't care either way because I was there to see the man in the sand. The Awakening is some sort of art. A man is coming out of the sand. We found it immediately because it's colossal (hmm, colossus?) and we also found little children running all over him. We stayed above the sand and checked him out from there.
|Hey, look! Hawaii.|
|What about this would make you want to eat at this restaurant? In case you don't understand what it is, it's a flabby fat naked man on a turtle. Still don't understand it? I don't either.|
|They were giving away free tastes and I got all excited but it was vanilla. Eh, FREE is FREE.|
|Some of my favorite art from the cute artsy stores|
|Love this too|
|And this is when Eddie said to me, it's so bright out!|

Getting into Georgetown was not easy. We crossed a bridge three times until we were able to not be in a turning lane to get back onto the bridge. However, our trip that morning and crossing over the bridge a bunch of times meant that I could do this:
|I can't find the words to describe how good this was.|
|This was a very long line for a famous cupcake shop.|
|I think this is the Kennedy Center but I could be making that up completely.|
|Now we both have sunglasses!|
|There was a woman next to us who started talking to herself so we walked away and sat on a bench.|
We enjoyed the sitting and relaxing so we decided to do more of that by seeing a movie. We were down the block from an AMC and I had free gift cards, so we can call that serendipity. Or being prepared. I carry them around just in case. We decided to see Lucy because the radio ads made it sound amazing. Morgan Freeman. Brain capacity. Scarlett Johansson. Drugs. It had to be good.
Lucy was the worst movie I've seen in a theatre in a really long time. Whoever created the commercial should have directed the movie because the advertising for it was much better than the actual film. It involved drug trafficking, superpowers that were used only sometimes but not in times when they'd be most effective, and some weird robot need to remember love but not really.
Oh, and this happened.
|Inappropriate barefootedness. Get some shoes, woman!|
After listing every single idiotic thing about the movie, we ventured out and about in Crystal City. There wasn't much to do or see, but we made a time of it. We found a cute and pretty park a few blocks away, and the park had a snack stand, and we were all about snacks. Then I was all about the signs all over the city that describe it.
