Just off Constitution Avenue there is a lovely area where people can rest for a spell, around a huge fountain. You not only can sit at the water's edge and dip your feet in the water, but there is also seating surrounding it. Another very nice addition right next door is The National Art's Pavilion Cafe which is open all year long. It has a casual menu of a variety of things but more importantly on a summer's day such as this, you can pop in and get an ice-cold drink.
In the wintertime it is used as an ice-skating rink and over the years we have stopped by to watch the skaters. No matter what the season it is a place where people gather to enjoy and have fun.
It was time for us to take a rest and have that cold drink. Miraculously a cool breeze picked up and the soft spray from the fountain was a refreshing spritzer. It was absolutely devine sitting here in our shady spot where we enjoyed the laughter of children as they splashed around with their parents looking on.
