Alexandria, Virginia

Michael and I met our son down in Alexandria, today. We took the metro train and walked many a mile! What we didn't know that there was a St. Patrick Day parade. So it was really crowded. We found a spot and watched the parade go by. Then we took a walk down by the waterfront.
Enjoy the pictures and videos.
Here is the drum major for the Navy band.

This is the drum and fife group. I loved the period costumes. They marched after each one of our uniformed services.

Here are the videos I took at the parade. The group in the red plays traditional bagpipe music. But listen to the green group. They are playing Yankee Doodle and Over There... so ironic.
