|Leaving S.C. still a long way to go!|

After a trip to the store, we hit the road to catch the Metro, and rode to Georgetown. We ate dinner at an awesome restaurant, Founding Farmers. If you're ever in the Georgetown area, I highly suggest putting this place on your tour-de-food! All of our appetizers and entrees were delicious. I love this quote from their website, "A collective of American family farmers owns our restaurant. We source our fresh products from family farms, ranches, and fisheries across the United States. We celebrate and share the longstanding connection between farmers — the first to lead the “green” movement — and their historic stewardship of natural resources." And, wouldn't you believe, one of their hosts was a Clemson grad, and recognized right away that we were from the south. After dinner, we shopped in Georgetown and then headed back to downtown D.C. where we really enjoyed walking the National Mall at night and took a few pictures at the Washington Monument. The view of the city lights at nighttime is truly a sight to see!
