Thank You Alexandria. Hope To See You Again.

As we were about to enter the port (needs to sign out - sign in), I looked behind me and saw this sight. I found Alexandria very charming, even their streets not facing the waterfront.

Also I spotted the Port Authority Museum, which we didn't visit.

This is the way back to the ship - about a 15-minute walk from the gate.

And what do you know, inside the port there was a outdoor marketplace selling jewelry, souvenir items, and knick knacks. I purchased a little souvenir for me - a pair of earrings.

I liked the juxtaposition of Alexandria skyline and the end (can't remember my naval term) of the boat.

With this post, I bid Alexandria adieu. A new series next post.

  4. beautiful place indeed. what i love about traveling is that i not only learn of their cultures and traditions but i left a piece of myself in every places i go to. :)

  5. You've brought back so many memories of the crusies I have taken in my lifetime, Maria...all of which were wonderful in every way. I don't know if I'll ever make it to this neck of the woods, though it's not that far from me now. At least I have seen it through your wonderful eyes. Thank you.

  6. Wow! This wasn't what I expected Alexandria to look like. But I guess I still hold some outdated notion of what it's about.

    Sorry I haven't visited sooner. But many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

  7. That last shot is great! What a huge boat! Love it...
