Palm Sunday in the DC 17h Street corridor

The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington DC had a congregational “Adventuring hike” today after the Palm Sunday service, up 16th St and down 17th Century above Annie’s, below Cobalt.

“The band played on”, providing folksy music.  The march lasted about 20 minutes.

It ended up near the Embassy of Australia.

I did hear from one person that people have recovered relatively well from the flooding caused by Hurricane Matthew last October (when only a Category 1) in eastern North Carolina, especially along the Tar and Nuese rivers.  I do want to get down there soon (no later than early May) to see it.  Resilience is a big issue for me to film and report on.  In West Virginia last summer, people were much more handyman-self-sufficient than the outside world thought after the valley floods in late June.  I did visit Lumberton (where, according to David Lynch in “Blue Velvet”, “woodchucks chuck”) in Sept. 2015.
