I spend so much time reading blogs from Brooklyn and England that I tend to think I'm hipper and or more British than I am. Actually I'm neither.
For those of you not familiar with the part of Virginia I live in ( or Virginia at all) here are a few pics from our hood. We are surrounded. Military to the left of us, military to the right of us.
When we take the lab for a walk we venture onto a property known as The Pentagon Reservation. It is another world from ours but easy to get to.
We leave our house and turn left, cut down the alley and take another left. We're walking down a hill between Arlington Cemetery and The Navy Annex.
Walk past the cemetery, down the hill and turn right. Next we climb up the hill up to the Air Force Memorial.
Standing under the arc we can see into Washington, D.C. The Washington Monument can be barely seen in the far distance.
Just down the hill from the Air Force Memorial is the Pentagon.
Then we go down the hill, take a right, go about a block and a half, turn right and we're home. Second house on the right.
You're welcome to join us next time you're in town. This walk is repeated 3 times a day. Just look for 2 blonds and a lab. We're hard to miss since we're not in uniform.
