I made my fourth trip to NHQ this week. I’ve attended for discussions on candidates, program, and business. I can’t say I’m a regular fixture but I’m getting to know my way around and some of the folks there. Apart from the discussions which are always interesting, I do like arriving in time to explore old Alexandria where people like Robert E. Lee, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and many other notable figures lived.
The area has kept a real charm and walking King Street with the shops, restaurants, and decor give you a feeling of “old towne” character. It is really nice when the weather is good.
This time it was very warm and humid but storms going through were flooding the streets.
I took a long walk and was fascinated to see all the scooters – electric and apparently for rent. They were everywhere and how they are charged and how you rent them or unlock them is a mystery to me. I was going to do some research but haven’t yet. Below is a couple of pictures of some of the people I saw using them.
When I was down by the river I was taking some pictures and noticed that there was a plane under the bridge. As I zoomed in, as best I could on my phone, it seemed to me that it was a 747 with familiar markings. See if you agree, but it appears to be one of the 747s that are Air Force One when the President is on it.
What do you think? Is it?
