Alexandria, Virginia 4.19.14 Last Day Vacation

Here are  pics from in and around one of my Fave cities, Alexandria. Visited with Ancilla Dominae High School in June 68 and again on honeymoon with my 4 kids dad back in May 72, as the summer Olympics played (remember Mary Lou Retton and swmmer Mark Spitz???? Watched them from an Alexandria motel room! 72 yeah!! I was 19. Nice trip, saw D.C. of cource. The 68 trip encompassed Williamsburg, NYC, Chinatown, Manhattan specifically, stayed with the girls’ school grad class and the 2 nuns who watched us goof off, at the Hotel Manhattan. Cool. So, I have my oldest son born in 73 now carting his mom around, lives near Alexandria so we did D.C. …started to post process the pics in Photoshop in the airport from the National Portrait Gallery. I was sitting an hour ahead already checked VIP status in ( military son with FFMiles lol) writing this blog and used quickly Faststone Image Resizer to half the images off my sweeeeet new Nikon Coolpix RED camera that zooms like CRAZY also uses batteries like they grow on TREES.  Here are the pocessed images, done with Photoshop CC.
