Biking to Alexandria

Posted by barb on Jul 24, 2005 in Biking, Pictures |

Andrew and I decided to take the bikes out to Alexandria today. This has typically been one of our favorite rides, since it takes us along the Potomac and then down into Alexandria for a yummy lunch and fun shops. And, we did enjoy the scenery, mostly enjoyed lunch (though our waiter at Bertucci’s did not bring us rolls, even after Andrew asked), and went a little nuts at A Likely Story because they were having a “Christmas in July” sale with 20% off all books and 30% off non-books. However, there were a lot of @sshole cyclists on the trail today, for some reason, and the bike trip make me pretty cranky. (Hoping to post a rant soon.)

Just as we got to the river, we saw this kayak with a very happy puppy:

We stopped at the Navy and Marine Memorial along the trail, and I took these two pictures:

Total miles: 11.3 miles
