The Kennedy Center Arts Integration Conference ended each day around 4:00, so we had the evenings to ourself to explore the DC area. On the first evening, we headed into Old Town Alexandria. Alexandria became a city in the 1700s and sits along the Potomac River.
It was a warm, but beautiful early evening. Alexandria is quite charming and colorful, so I was very glad to have brought the new camera with me. My colleagues were very accommodating as I wanted to stop every few steps to take a shot of something pretty.
Being a very old city (old for the US anyway), it has many historic sites and landmarks including Christ Church and George Washington's town home. It is said that Washington was a frequent visitor to Alexandria.
Inside Christ Church, there were plaques noting that both Washington and Robert E. Lee were parish members.
We spent most of our visit walking along King Street from the Metro station, ending at the Potomac where we had dinner overlooking the river.
There was more comfort using the new camera this go around. I was pleased with the photos from this trip.
