#Xtreme13 the duo edition (Me and my Bae-thang) had a day date that had us on a two wheel adventure. With LittleCuteLips still being young day dates are still the way to go. The kids are at daycare and school while we are out here living our best life kid free.
We rode bikes from the National Harbor, Maryland across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge into Old Town, Virginia. I’ve owned this bike for about four years and I’ve only been on it twice. When Babe took it down it was dusty and my tires were flat. OH! I guess I need to put forth more effort.
The view was nice as you can see but the workout was serious. Going into Virginia is mostly up hill and requires some leg work I’m not accustom to. This also meant one should know how to work their gears. Ummm! I missed that class, but no time like the present right? By the time I figured out the correct gear I needed to be in it was time to change it again. Really!
This was my guide; I’d follow him to the moon and back but this time it was just into Virginia and back.
Just the two!
After grabbing some grub we rode around Jones Point in Virginia, I hadn’t been over there in years. Since the bridge renovation they have redone the park and it looks really good. While riding around we decided to look for the boundary stone.
Jones Point Park, located near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, has two important historical artifacts: the original south corner boundary stone for Washington, D.C., dating to 1794, and the 1855 Jones Point Lighthouse. In 1791, George Washington led the survey that carved the District of Columbia from Maryland and Virginia, including Alexandria. The survey began at Jones Point, and a stone was installed to mark the spot. It was replaced in 1794 and embedded in the seawall One of the first federal projects the new nation undertook was the construction of lighthouses to protect shipping. The Jones Point Lighthouse, built in 1855, served that function until 1926.Source
The stone (above) is in the glass below me. My right foot is in Maryland, left foot in Virginia and my hand is in DC.

After all of my hard work I got a vanilla shake from Potbelly at the Harbor in Maryland. If you have never had one you are doing yourself an extreme disservice. I’m just saying. They are magically delicious and you my dear, yes you, are missing out.
