What We Loved This Week: Rock Creek Park, Rainy Day Camping and ‘Sweetness and Blood’

I spent a rainy Labor Day weekend camping in Haines, Alaska, and the weather didn’t detract at all. The beautiful thing about camping in town? We were never more than a few minutes’ walk from a warm, dry bar and the local brew on tap.
Rock Creek Park. The too-hot summer in Washington D.C. seems to be over, and I spent some of the long holiday weekend walking through the park’s shady paths, basking in the glorious weather.
I’ve really been enjoying Sweetness and Blood, which is both a travel narrative and a look at surfing and globalization. Great stuff.
