I'm a Foreign Service Officer and Pickering alumna. I'm not sure where life is taking me but stick around and we'll find out together.

Finally, a day that was nice enough to get outside and enjoy - and to my great surprise it fell right at peak bloom for the Cherry Blossoms. I had really almost given up on this year (with no small amount of disgust) since winter keeps creeping back and the forecast had even called for snow today. Yuck. Luckily the windy weather didn’t whip away the blossoms and while it was crowded, I’ve come to expect and appreciate the crowds if only because it’s nice to see my fellow Americans outside enjoying something beautiful and soaking in the fresh air.
I grabbed a few pictures (not all from the tidal basin) for posterity.
