318/365 Alexandria

I’d never heard of Alexandria, Virginia until Dean suggested it might be a good place to live. We visited it summer of 1985, found a realtor who showed us a delightful rental house in a neighborhood called Beverly Hills. The following year we bought a home in the Delray neighborhood which at the time was a working class area of town. It’s since gentrified.

Alexandria still holds a special place in my heart and I often wish we hadn’t moved away. It was a place with real neighborhoods and genuine people.

We rarely visit despite it being less than 25 miles away.

  1. I don’t remember the lips. Tim used to take classes or figure drawing or something at the Torpedo Factory. It’s really hard to take the time to get around the huge metropolitan area!
