Still slowly creeping north on our way to Washington DC to see the cherry blossoms. We’ve heard about how beautiful it is there at bloom time and we want to witness it for ourselves. Because of the harsh winter weather this year the actual bloom time is later than it has been in previous years. Right now, according to the 2014 Bloom Watch we’re looking at April 8-12 as the peak bloom period. Normal bloom time is April 4. So we have plenty of time.
Today we found Endless Caverns RV Resort & Campground to spend the night. We found them in our Passport America membership directory so we can stay for half price for one night. They told us that today was their first day of the year to be open and the place was almost empty. There are over 100 campsites here an there are only a few campers spending the night, it’s very quiet, we should sleep well. That’s quite a change from last night where we stayed in a very noisy Walmart parking lot. The farther north we go the more challenging it will get to find a campground open this early.
But look at that blue sky! And for the first time this year we experienced temperatures over 70 degrees. Spring has sprung!
