I mentioned in my previous post that we’ve been out and about more than usual lately. One of our recent destinations was to the Washington, DC area—mostly to attend my company’s holiday party, an event celebrating our company’s accomplishments over the past year and, I must say, a good time was had by all.
Husband and I extended the weekend so we would have time to take in some of the sights of the nation’s capital. We’ve been there many times before—in fact, I was stationed in the DC area when I was in the Navy way back when—but, between old attractions and new, there is always so much to see and do there. The party hotel was in Alexandria so we spent a lazy after-party Sunday exploring one of the oldest and most historic of America’s cities. The weather was cold, cloudy, and blustery, especially for a couple of converted Floridians, but even that didn’t prevent us from enjoying an afternoon searching out some of the quirky features of old town Alexandria.
I loved the simplicity of this sign and how it seemed to advocate the way we spent our day. I was also intrigued by all the nails in the wood above the doors and windows of this building. I can only imagine what all has hung off this building over its many years.
And how cool is this? I can’t remember now whether it was the weathered building that caught my attention or the quirky advertisement. Either way, what fun!
