Alexandria, Virginia and Washington D.C.: 1.20.2008

– Alexandria, Virginia and Washington D.C. 2008 –

Kind of a crash course of the area, this series was shot the morning after a belated holiday party.

We start with breakfast at Pat Troy’s Restaurant and Pub in Alexandria, Virginia,

and then drive into Washington D.C.

with a quick stop at the Capitol Building,

passing the Washington Monument, the White House, and the Lincoln Memorial,

stopping at the Iwo Jima Memorial, and passing Arlington National Cemetery

before continuing on…

The January windchill kept us in the car much of the time.
