Weekend Wrap-up

On Friday night, we went for a spur-of-the-moment Happy Hour with Rebecca's coworkers at the physical therapy clinic. Where the week before we went to the Clyde's which is apparently Swinger Central for people in Ashburn, this week we went to the Greene Turtle in Leesburg, a sports bar with decent food and overpriced drinks. After dinner, we were caught inside by one of the innumerable thundersqualls. It ended moments later with a double rainbow over Giant.

On Saturday, a party of seven headed to Old Rag for a hike, along with eight million other day warriors from some kind of "-urb" in Northern Virginia. The weather was a lingering dropcloth of smoldering humidity, heavily hinting at rain without breaking all of the way up the mountain. We hit the summit around 1:00 for lunch and a brief rest before we were swarmed with tiny orange mating insects and a huge thunderstorm rolling in out of the northeast.

This got everyone off of the mountain in quite a hurry, but again, it never actually rained on top of us. We came back down by way of the fire trail, and then had ice cream in Warrenton at the Carousel stand. After a sterilizing bath to drown all of the hitchhiking insects, we had chicken-bacon alfredo pizza for dinner and watched Labyrinth until Rebecca fell asleep.

Sunday was an errandy day, with a trip to the grocery store and a much needed tire inflation. In the evening, Rebecca's parents came over for a dinner of grilled turkey burgers with a cucumber relish. We looked at pictures from the Peru trip and then called it a night.
