Our big day yesterday, meeting up with blogging friends Diane and Bill

It was a very happy day for us when we found out that Diane and Bill, our blogging friends from Adventures before Dementia and Bill's Ponderings would be visiting Washington DC. When Diane called me so that we could arrange to meet, Gregg and I were absolutely delighted.

They were everything we expected them to be, a very warm and friendly couple whom we took to straight away, and by the time we left we felt like we were saying goodbye to old friends.

Here they are at a restaurant in Georgetown with a good view of all the activity on the Potomac River.

After lunch we took a quick tour up to The Supreme Court (above) and the Capitol Building (below).
These are the lovely souvenir's they gave us from Australia, a great memento of our time together and we will treasure them, thank you Diane and Bill.

So Dear Friends, happy traveling and we will check in each day to see where you are along your journey. Thanks for such a great time and we won't say goodbye but will say until we meet again.

I couldn't agree more about what wonderful people Diane and Bill are! The Musician and I really enjoyed our visit with them in Hollywood. I am constantly grateful for the new friends to be found and enjoyed thanks to blogging and the Internet!

Isn't blogging fun? I just met up with some bloggers in Utah and it was like we'd all known each other for forever. Incredible. I've read Diane/Bill's blogs for probably as long as we've all been blogging. I'm sure they would be just like that also. I told them I'd meet them in the Grand Canyon when they come through here but apparently they won't be there very long.

So lovely to meet blogging friends. I have not as yet had the pleasure but the future is an open book.
You all look so happy and I bet you gave them a great tour. It is always so much nicer when someone shows you around a city that they love.

Thank you for popping by, I always appreciate your visits.

A great post to read.
Its lovely to meet people you come across online.
I had a similar experience last year meeting an online friend from Borneo when he came over to the UK for Birdfair as part of his countries tourist trade team...
The world is a very small place...

You live in the DC area? I grew up there--Silver Spring (very changed from when I lived there).
