This trip to D.C., we made it a point of heading up to King Street in Old Town Alexandria, which was awesome and packed full of small boutique shops and restaurants and art galleries. It was definitely picturesque, and I carried my camera (and big, heavy camera bag – groan) around everywhere we went, but I don’t have too many photos to show for it – I guess was having so much fun to take it out much.
If you ever make it to Old Town Alexandria, here are a couple notable stops: Olio – a olive oil tasting room (loved!!), the Bilbo Baggins – a pub with an awesome name (I kept expecting round hobbit doors, but they sadly didn’t have any), and the Torpedo Factory Art Center – which is an old torpedo factory that’s been converted to artists’ galleries/studios/shops and an art school/learning center.
I miss the Torpedo Factory the most, because I’m jealous there’s nothing quite like that near me. I am glad I caught a glimpse of this old-timey candy shop, though, and I had to share it with you today. More photos coming as I can get them edited.
Got any plans for the weekend?
P.S. Just a heads up – if you’re looking to take my Editing with Elements class, the price goes up on Sunday. I’d love to have you!
