This past weekend, my parents and grandmother (yes, I am lucky to still have one!) came up to visit. We spent some Quality Time working on our new house, but took a break on Sunday for a boat trip on the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.
This is a great DC-area field trip if you have older folks visiting you, even on a hot day. It’s just a short walk to the boat, then a nice breezy ride on the canal, and another short walk over to the picnic grounds where there is a snack stand. (Not that my parents couldn’t handle some hiking, but my grandmother is just a little slower than she used to be!)
