Our hotel at National Harbor, Maryland provided close proximity to downtown Washington D.C. just 10 miles north and lovely views of the Potomac River. Walking along the marina one evening, I captured this shot. Wouldn’t you like to enjoy a cocktail while cruising along the river in one of those boats at sunset on the Potomac?
