Here’s a shot of us driving toward the
bottom of Georgetown
and the Georgetown Waterfront!
We decided to take the Cadillac XTS
out to brunch
and enjoyed wonderful food at Sequoia,
that has the best views in Washington!
The weather was perfect!
You can’t beat Washington
on Memorial Day Weekend
when the weather is like this,
and with an easy way to get around-
you can’t ask for anything more.
So, after our family thoroughly enjoyed
a wonderful meal,
we went back to the Caddie,
and look how easy it fit
into garage parking!
This was a tight garage,
in the middle of Georgetown,
and the Cadillac XTS
took it in stride;
Its maneuverability is great!
After brunch we visited
The US Marine Corps War Memorial
in honor of Memorial Day Weekend
and ended our afternoon with
trips to Farmers Markets
as well as
Touring around the city is delightful
in the Cadillac XTS. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday with the family!
Happy Memorial Day Weekend !!!
We continued our Green Weekend with the Cadillac XTS by going to the Pike Central Farm Market!
We were greeted right away by one of the Founders, Mitch Berliner,
then continued to all the fantastic booths!
We found salami,
to take home!
The Cadillac was wonderful, it was so easy to use, even my son could load our bag into the trunk by himself!
We had a wonderful day and ended it by having dinner at one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants- Cafe Deluxe in downtown Bethesda. This family dinner place gets its poultry and dairy from nearby farmers!
This weekend, this Memorial Day Weekend, our Family is celebrating living in the DC Metro Area, the Nation’s Capital, by visiting local merchants and growers and going GREEN, thanks to help from the GM East Team at General Motors, who gave us a gorgeous Cadillac XTS (which drives like a dream) for a week!!
The first stop on our Green Weekend was a Farmers Market, but not just any farmers market- my son, who was off school, and I went to the Montgomery Farm Women’s Cooperative Market in Bethesda, Maryland.
THIS MARKET WAS STARTED, BY WOMEN, IN 1932 !!
And it was heralded as the only farm woman’s cooperative of its kind in the world!! And it’s still around!
This is what I love about living in the DC area- it’s not just about the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, although those are pieces of history that are very important.
DC is about finding little gems and pieces of magic that are right under your nose. Almost everything in this region has some kind of historical significance, and I love that!
We saw beautiful flowers
And some delicious cheeses from Stonyman Gourmet Farmer, in fact we bought a Gouda from them that was delicious!
The cheeses are from Washington, Virginia… which was laid out by none other than George Washington himself, when he was a surveyor- how’s that for historical!!
Everything was fresh and beautiful!
My son, a car fanatic, and I had a wonderful day driving around the Washington Area in the Cadillac XTS, like I said before, it drives like a dream.
Thanks again GM East Team!
Stay tuned for tomorrow !!
