2018 Georgetown Family Weekend - Day 2
Sleeping late, the plan for the morning was to work out. I grabbed a couple of oatmeals for breakfast from the bistro in the hotel. Sharon had made a 9:45 am reservation for a SoulCycle class in Georgetown. While she did the class, I ran 6.6 miles on the treadmill.
Getting cleaned up, we packed up the room. I walked to the Key Bridge Marriott to pick up a Hertz rental car. We got Jeep Grand Cherokee using award points. From there, I drove back to the Courtyard to pick up Sharon and the luggage.
Heading into Georgetown, we met Jack for lunch at sweetgreens. Although he is stressed about midterms, it was nice to see him. I will never understand why they schedule parent weekend right in the middle of midterms.
After some running amok around the parking lot ticket, we headed to Washington, Virginia. We are spending one night at The Inn at Little Washington. It was about an hour and a half drive west of Washington DC. We ended up getting there just after 3:30 pm.
We checked in and got settled in the room. We stayed in The Parsonage House. Afterwards, we took a walking tour of the property with a guide that lasted almost 45 minutes. Like our tour of the Mount Washington Resort last fall, it was a small group; just us and one other couple.
After the walking tour, we had tea. After the tea, we headed back to the room and got cleaned up for dinner.
We headed to dinner about 7:00 am and had a cocktail. We got seated for dinner about 7:30 pm. It was fabulous. Sharon had the "Four Decades of Our Enduring Classics" menu with the wine pairing, while I had "The Astronaut's Menu" with the wine pairing. The menus are here. It was one of the best meals that we ever had.
We wandered back to our room in the Psrsonage House and crashed after 11 pm...
