Alexandria Waterfront

Early Sunday morning I met two friends in Alexandria for a walk. We started at Jones Point and walked through town and back. I’ve hardly ever been in Alexandria, so I enjoyed seeing a new place. I was impressed by how well kept it was and that there were so many dogs.

There’s this interesting tunnel.

The part of town we walked through had the same old town feel as Fredericksburg, but bigger. Many buildings have historical plaques, just like in Fredericksburg.

It was not very cold — in the mid 40s — but the sun didn’t manage to come out from behind the clouds.

The boats are always interesting to see.

I liked the design of the railings.

I’ll have to come back sometime and eat in Bilbo’s restaurant!

Many of the buildings have actual gas-burning lamps.

We saw the skinniest house. It’s only 7 feet wide.

This basketball court is just one of the many amenities at Jones Point Park, along with the nicest bathroom I’ve ever seen at a park, trails, and playground.  I look forward to going back again on a sunny day.
