How to top Proton Tuesday?! Radioactive Valentine’s Day!

Leave a comment

As usual, it started with zapping

But it was a special day!  The last day of treatment!  Which means bell ringing time.  Pizza was devoured. Bells were rung.

 

Feels good to be done.

 

A happy spool

There was little time left for Baltimore’s museum collection.  We headed directly to the American Visionary Art Museum.

Das boots (slightly radioactive)

 

After purchasing some items, many of which were plastic, we headed to the aquarium, driving like lost tourists.

The parking angel (really does something indescribably to the Audi)

The National Aquarium was mobbed on a Valentines Day night.

And then it was back down to Old Town for a very late dinner indeed at the Majestic.  Super fun at the bar (happy Catoctin Creek day!), and a delicious dinner.

A VERY VERY LARGE BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE. VERY LARGE.

Scallops. If you can’t watch them in an aquarium, by all means eat them.

 

Last word

 

I will dearly miss Proton Tuesdays (and Radioactive Valentines), but I hope they never happen again.

The aquarium was a first.  So was the maritime museum.  Visit both.

On a beautiful Spring day (one of the first for months) we went to the edge of the continent with Uncle Jim and Chloe. Just south of the Russian river is Shell Beach and across Highway 1 from that is a nice set of trails traversing the coastal hills.

All told, we may have hiked 3.5 or 4 miles.

Spring mushrooms were everywhere (irises too)

 

To the fern forest

Then it was back down to the ocean.
