After a morning of food shopping and final preparations, we set off to Dulles once we knew that the plane had landed.
Just a short wait and Lauren and James were through customs and we were soon at home enjoying a cup of tea on the deck. Unfortunately it seems to be cooler here now than in the UK but it was dry today.
Later we went to the local Sports Bar for dinner where we could choose to watch football, baseball, racing or cycling on the big screens although we didn't manage to get the commentary box on our table to work (in theory you can tune in to the commentary of the game or sport that interests you and have it broadcast just to your table).
We sampled the Philli Cheesesteak Sandwich that was Lauren's favourite when we came to visit David at this time last year. Unfortunately nobody except me is prepared to eat the dill pickles so I ended up with an overdose of pickled cucumber.
It is great to have our first visitors here and we are looking forward to sightseeing with them during the coming week.
