I see the name on the building but can't find this place.
Any clues?

I found it, do a google search for the hair salon next door with the street #... That might help narrow it down. I might tae a ride out for it tomorrow or Sunday.

ok, this has stalled long enough! I finally got it, made a special trip this morning. Got home, and low and behold, had to go to the same area around lunchtime (spur of the moment)!

1014 King St, between Henry and Patrick St.

Are you expecting one of us to report you for parking in front of a hydrant?

1014 King St, between Henry and Patrick St., which will be the location of a new Alexandria branch of Boccato gelato and spresso bar! It should be open in a couple weeks.

I'll turn myself in for that one
If anyone needs help with this one, let me know. A google search should get you in the right direction if you don't immediately recognize the company name and logo.

I know where it is, but will probably not have the opportunity to go there before we head down to NC on Saturday morning.

I got it Saturday. I have an idea for the next tag and I'll try to get it up here tonight or tomorrow. I'm going to try a spot I think will be difficult to identify but easy to get to.

This might be too easy, but the next rider can up the difficulty level.

Let me revive the NOVA/DC tag with an easy one!

This is only a few blocks away from yours and is, needless to say, a hell of an area landmark.

Cheers-

Traffic was crazy on the waterfront yesterday so I hope this counts even though it's not exactly where you took your pic....

Scooter Tag - Muddy Mutts
It's so green! Just like me! My second ride today and I went 13 whole miles. A little nervous but I'd forgotten how much FUN it is to ride. Wheeeeee like a little GEICO piggy!

Hint:
I just cruise through the line of traffic slowly and park over in front of Capt Whites Barge that they have set up for eating. Cops never even give me a second look.

I just eat here over the weekend but didn't have my scooter since I was with the wife. If nobody gets it before me I'm going to grab it as soon as I can get a chance.

GORGEOUS SCOOTER! I like the white, had not seen any white ones before, and the piping on the seat makes it stand out.

Did you really ride over the drawbridge to Natl Harbor? Not for the faint of heart!

It's not to bad crossing that bridge since all the updates. It's worth the trip over to cruize around the area.

If nobody is able to hit after some time then I could do another one.

Going down to the Fish Market in DC tonight, will jump on 295 and run over to NH on my way home if it's not dark by then.
Looks like the Gaylord Hotel. I'll find the spot, if I make it there.

If you're talking about the Woodrow Wilson Bridge -- it is still a drawbridge. However, with the reconstruction, there is more clearance over the main channel and it doesn't have to open as often.

I'm up for playing but can't get to National Harbor for the last tag. I was hoping someone else would have gotten that one by now.

I don't want to hold everyone up. I'm not going to be able to tag again for a little while. Someone else feel free to start up again with a new tag if you don't want to get this last one.
