If there’s a break in the rain this week for a few minutes, run down to the Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens and take a look at the lotus blossoms in bloom.
This national park is a serene gem nestled in between the Anacostia River and I-295. On a quiet day, you can see turtles, salamanders, butterflies, frogs, dragonflies and more. During the Lotus Blossom Festival last weekend, you could see few of these, as the grounds were overrun with small children and their parents decked out in rubber boots to protect themselves from the mud and puddles all over the paths. However, a couple of white herons could be spotted safely away from the crowds out in the water, one perched on a branch, the other slowly strolling through the shallow areas on his long legs. … EXPERIENCE THE LUXURIOUS LOTUS AT KENILWORTH AQUATIC GARDENS
Okay, so this weekend may have been full of rain but we’re totally not gonna let it get our week down, right?
After all, there’s still a boatload of fun in the sun and all kinds of shenanigans to be had during the work week!
So, if you’re one of the countless individuals out there like myself who feel like they’re just about ready to tap out on Monday afternoon, then you’re in luck — because we’ve got a handful of pick me ups to get you ready and raring to go so you can power through in style til Friday.
