Day 264, the National Cathedral and Georgetown Cupcakes!

IMG_0700Side view of the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.  We went for the Sunday morning church service and I was surprised by how few people were there.  Do all the regulars come at 11 a.m., or have they lost the locals and just tourists come?  It’s a beautiful building, and while hit hard by the earthquake, they have the funds to continue fixing it up and keeping the doors open.  The service was nice, but nothing quotable.

IMG_0704This stop was more exciting!  Eliza found this store online and we have shipped cupcakes for friends, but we’ve never tried one ourselves.  There was a long line in the little shop, but we decided to wait.  The lady in front of us said that she had come to D.C. for a conference years ago, and the bus was going to stop, but the line had been out the door. She said this time she wasn’t leaving without a Georgetown Cupcake.  She bought 2 dozen, we only bought 6.  We walked over to the park across the street and nibbled a little.  We were a little disappointed and think that the cupcakes Amanda brought to the RV for dinner that night were much better.  We’re glad we went, but we won’t be shipping them as gifts anymore!
