Up at 5 am, Sharon and I took off for the airport at 6:30 am. We caught an 8:30 am nonstop from Sacramento to Dulles. I was surprised how empty the airport was. With the plane only about 2/3s full, we upgraded to a nice exit row. It was just the two of us in the three seats.
Although they expected a bumpy flight due to the weather on the east coast, it wasn't too bad. Taking off a little early, we were on the ground in Dulles just after 4 pm. We were shocked to find our luggage already there when we got to baggage claim.
We caught an Uber into Georgetown. The trip took 54 minutes (4:45 pm to 5:39 pm). Checking into the Georgetown Marriott, we got an odd room in the business wing on the hotel.
With Jack organizing a welcome party for new employees at The Corp, we had the night to ourselves. After getting settled in the room, we walked into Georgetown and had a drink and a snack at L'Annexe.
We then walked back into the West End for dinner at Nobu. We shared Yellowtail Jalapeño, Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Salmon Avocado Sushi Maki and Eggplant with Miso.
We celebrated the 25th anniversary of our first date! An email that I wrote Wallen and Nooter afterwards is here.
Sharon and I finished the day with a nightcap in the hotel bar. Still feeling like we were on West Coast time, we watched some television in the room before we crashed.
