I have been meaning to blog for ages, but last month I was away a lot, including my first trip to the US.
I seem to have been catching up ever since.
I do like to blog with photos, but blogger has never made that easy, so it always takes me ages to get on with it.
So just a few from my trip (a bigger selection on flickr). I flew to Philadelphia and took a train to Washington DC. With a little time to spare. I took a look outside the station - to an archetypal US view - skateboarder and skyscrapers!
Next day was Sunday in Washington, so I had to go to the Eastern Market - and what should I find there but wool! Christian Rathbone designs rugs which are made in Turkey using vegetable dyes and wool from local sheep.
The market has local producers selling vegetables as well as crafts, 'antiques' etc.
Then on to walk down the National Mall from Capitol Hill to Lincoln Monument.
