Well, we're back from the District. Had a blast. Everything went like clockwork until Sunday, when we missed our tour of the Washington Monument and, later, two of our bags decided to stay in D.C. with the Transportation Security Agency for a couple more hours instead of coming home with us to Tampa.

Only got lost twice in the rental car - both times at the same infernal spot on the Beltway.

In all, a pretty close to perfect trip.

No injuries that I can tell, other than sore calves and a couple of paper-cut-thin slices on my hands delivered by a dozen Maryland crabs that didn't want to give up the fight during dinner Saturday night in Baltimore. When the Old Bay seasoning found its way under the skin, it made the experience that much more authentic and satisfying. Now, every time I hit the spacebar on the computer with the tender and painful part of my thumb, I get this Pavlovian urge to crack open a claw for a mouthful of delicious white crab meat.

Anyway, all this is to say that photos and stories are inbound during the next couple days. But to give a sample of some of the sights, here's a pic I shot on Thursday night while we were sitting along the Potomac in Georgetown. In my mind, this guy was a super-secret emmisary sent to make contact with us to deliver precious information.

His code name?

"Geek Throat."

Yes, the Old Bay-infused paper cuts are integral to the crab experience. Sorry I missed it. Oh, and sorry I missed you guys, too ...
