The Wilson Bridge

A View from the Alexandria Waterfront

Before I picked up Marie in Alexandria on Friday, she texted that her bus would arrive about 15 minutes behind schedule, so I spent the extra time driving down to the Potomac River and back. Old Town has not changed much, and since it was a beautiful day, people were enjoying themselves. I even saw someone blowing bubbles.

Sometimes I miss Alexandria. It's a great town! Well, sometimes the pollution bothered me in the summer, but otherwise it was wonderful.

This picture shows the "new" Wilson Bridge. I'm much more familiar with the previous bridge, which opened in 1961. But this one looks more graceful.
