Packing up

We are packing up to leave Alexandria. This is a picture of a man who plays on the street corner by the Torpedo factory in Old Town. It is amazing to hear him.this time he played the theme to Star Wars. If you are ever in Alexandria I hope that you will have the chance to hear him.

Yesterday was a laid back day. First stop was to pick up some soda and some colossal donuts from one of the supermarkets here. They don't have donuts like these in Asheboro.

Our next stop was In Stitches in Alexandria. This is an amazing store. They have just about anything you could ask for.

I have really been trying to work on stitching from my stash but I picked up a few small things.

I always like to buy something. There are a couple of other things on my wish list but I will probably order them in November for my birthday.
After the needlework store we headed over to Gunston Hall.

This was the home of George Mason. He was a great contributor to our current form of government. Rich and I walked around the property, we didn't go on a tour of the house since we have done that before.
After that we headed back to the hotel and took a nap. Then it was back to the
Pita House.

There was a little stitching. This is another piece that was in my stash.
Now we are paving up.

Thanks everyone for the anniversary wishes an comments!

Have a great Thursday!
