Will Work Hard for a Better Life
These young women joined thousands coming
from all over the U.S. to demonstrate for immigration
22 March: Head cold is gone. Yesterday was Terry's B'day and we celebrated with a champagne and jazz brunch and a D.C. city walkabout. Went to the waterfront, found the marina, and got info where to go/what to do if we ever bring our boat up here on a cruise. Also found a pretty amazing seafood market right under the 14th Street Bridge. Then we walked all the way back to the hotel, mingling with thousands of demonstrators protesting current immigration laws. When we got back to the hotel and turned on the TV, we saw them on Fox News who said they were there protesting the health care bill. Lovely.
23 March: Today we decamp from this hotel and drive across the Potomac to another in Ballston where Terry has another two days of meetings. I'm going to get to go to the Pentagon for the first time to meet with a would-be financial advisor. Wednesday, home, home home and this weekend hope to get Seawind back in the water and back to her slip on Onancock Creek. Progress being made on all fronts.
