I took a jaunt to Old Town Alexandria, an historic district on the Potomac. It’s colonial and foodie and makes for a pleasant evening stroll. I stopped by La Madeleine French Bakery & Café for a late afternoon coffee with my roommate who seemed distracted.
The Obama’s like to dine in the district, so I’ve heard. From Alan Wong’s, La Mer’s, Matsumoto’s shaved ice and Sandy Beach to Old Town Alexandria, I’ve shared their haunts.
The crown of the day was above the streets as the clouds composed themselves in orchestral maneuvers as the darkness set. Make it last.
