Well, not very surprisingly, on our jest sightseeing day we were ready for a refreshment stop in an air-conditioned building after about 5 minutes! We took a walk from our hotel, down the Potomac towards Old Alexandria – beautiful, but hot! The town was lovely and made walking around (in the shade) bearable.
We found an ice cream place and stopped for cool beverage – and it would’ve been rude not to have a wee ice cream! We decided on orange choc choc chip (orange chocolate flavoured ice cream with chocolate chips) and it was scrumptious.
