Last night we walked around the neighborhood visiting our favorite haunts one last time.
|The Crystal City Waterpark|
|The path to the park|
|Long Bridge Park|
|A view of the Washington Monument from the park|
|The park is also a good place to watch planes en route to Reagan Nat''l Airport|
|Restaurants across the street|
Then early this morning the moving van arrived to pick up our belongings. Our possessions have been reduced significantly since we lived in Tucson. Items that survived the cut when we downsized include an antique china cabinet and the china Cindy inherited from her grandmother. What’s left of our goods will be stored in the farmhouse basement of Cindy’s brother in Kansas.
While the guys loaded the van, Cindy took some last pictures of the view from our balcony. If you look closely--very closely--perhaps with the help of a magnifying glass--you might see the Washington Monument in the photo below.
There's also a view of the U.S. Capitol in the distance.

Once the moving van is on its way, we'll jump into our car to head west, too. First stop is Chicago to visit Tim’s family. Then we’ll try to beat the moving van to the farm. With any luck the driver will be able to navigate the country roads.
