The U.S. Navy Sea Chanters

Saturday night (after a much-needed post-walk nap) I picked up Pam and we headed to Susie's first official performance with the Sea Chanters, the U.S. Navy's singing group. Susie just joined in January and has been away at boot camp in Illinois for 2 months, so this was our first chance to see her, and the group, and they did not disappoint.

She and the Chanters will be singing the National Anthem at the Nationals home opener Thursday night, so if you are going (lucky!) or watch it on TV, keep an eye out. That's my girl!!

Isn't she lovely? Me, Sus, and Pam after the show.

Rowing practice was moved to Sunday morning so I was out on the water by 6:45--we've gotten out every practice this week and that is just un-friggin-believable for this early in the year. A good omen, methinks. After that I was all things productive, zooming around NoVa doing errands, cleaning the apartment, and detailing the car. Plus I braved the insane Cherry Blossom crowds to take a run downtown and check out the trees from afar. How can you live around here and not take advantage? This weekend was perfect--weather and otherwise. Now I just need about 4 more days of the same weather and free time and I'll be all set. Oh wait. What? It's Monday? Son of a....
