Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Washington, D.C. Trip (Part 1)

I attended the Enroll America "State of Enrollment" conference this year and spent May 10-14 in Washington, D.C. Although I was quite busy with conference activities during the day, I was able to enjoy a "Monuments by Moonlight" tour on Thursday evening, getting together with my mentee R for lunch and friends M & D for dinner on Friday, and visiting one of my favorite museums on Saturday morning before my return flight.

Tuesday May 10 & Wednesday May 11 - SMF > DC, Renaissance Hotel
I stayed at the Renaissance Hotel Downtown, which was a great location and very convenient to the metro, particularly for travel to Reagan Airport. The hotel rooms and meeting spaces showcased some really interesting art, most of which featured a theme tied to the history and culture of D.C. (politics!).

Thursday, May 12 - Monuments by Moonlight
The evening tour began a bit later than the scheduled 7:30pm start time, but we still had the opportunity to see all of the sites on the route, including the Capital Building, FDR Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, MLK Memorial, and Washington Memorial.
