Tidal Basin

In a normal year the Tidal Basin entrance to the Martin Luther King memorial would be pink with cherry blossoms. But this year the the limbs of cherry trees reaching over the basin waters are still bare. The trees still have a stark beauty on this sunny afternoon. We find two great blue herons, apparently immune to the attentions of tourists, sunning themselves near the Jefferson Memorial.
