Quickie, rushing because we were looking at the full moon at perigee! We had a full day -- chores in the morning, then we went to the National Colonial Farm in Piscataway Park in Accokeek, which was having a Celebrating the Potomac festival, this year commemorating the bicentennial of the War of 1812 battles in the area by having Pride of Baltimore II visit at the dock overlooking Mount Vernon across the river. There were living history presenters exploring farm and slave life, and Ocean Quartet was playing music from the period!


We got home in time for the second half of the World Cup runner-up game, which was not fun to watch for anyone pulling for the host country or just likes balanced matches. Then we had sloppy joes and watched The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, which I did not love despite the nautical theme and the sea animals -- the characters were mostly one-note, especially the women (an ongoing problem in Wes Anderson movies), but it ended in time for us to see the Nationals beat the Phillies in extra innings!
