old town alexandria

We finally visited historic Old Town Alexandria yesterday afternoon. Didn't take as many pictures as I should have, but I'm sure we'll be back. One of the most interesting places we found was the VeloCity Bicycle Co-op. Mr. BikeMan has passed this place for months as he makes his way to and from work (via velo of course). The Co-op serves as a place to learn bike maintenance, tool sharing, and general bike joy.

We also found a kilt shop, The Kilted Nation. The owner was out of town up at ComicCon (lucky guy), but his utterly delightful parents were watching the shop. Ingrid and Ilsa have decided that they now want kilts for Christmas. The website doesn't show their entire inventory. One neat product they do carry are velcro-closure children's kilts which could literally be worn for years and years as the child grows.
