Old Town, Virginia

Last Sunday, Mark and I drove down to the historic old town – Alexandria. It was a favorite hang-out place for George Washington and Robert E. Lee.

A bunch of the buildings and street names are from colonial times. Plenty of modern businesses flourish here as well – from Starbucks to GAP.

The Torepdo Factory is a three-story building filled with artists’ studios. Folks can wander in and see the artists at work. Mark enjoyed petting a little black dog chilling with his painter. The dog ended up padding back to his owner and sitting at her feet, while she painted waves.
