I have been very keen to see the film version of Alan Bennett's book and play 'Lady in the Van' starting Maggie Smith.
It has not yet reached Reston but we found that it was showing at a multiplex cinema in Sterling, not too far away - we went at lunchtime today, after visiting a local shopping mall.
I really enjoyed the film and would now like to re-read the book!
On our way back we followed signs to the Algonkian Regional Park, just to see what was there. It is a large state-run park on the banks of the Potomac river and it is obvious that in the summer there would be plenty going on!
Apart from the boating access to the river and hence large boat park there is a golf course, picnic shelters, swimming pool and water park and even riverside cabins to rent and a campground.
