Join us for a brisk out and back walk for a total of about 7 miles (mostly level) exploring Old Town Alexandria, Jones Point Park and the Dyke Marsh wetlands (http://www.nps.gov/gwmp/planyourvisit/dykemarsh.htm) along the Potomac River south of Alexandria. Part of the walk will be on the paved Mount Vernon Trail and the gravel trail in Dyke Marsh wildlife refuge. Bring binoculars if possible. Dogs are welcome but must be on leash. We will end the walk and go for lunch and world cup soccer watching at Murphy's Grand Irish pub in Old Town Alexandria. The game featuring Lionel Messi and his Argentina team against Iran starts at noon.

Will send cell phone number to Yes rsvp's by friday night.

    As for whether you can keep up, we are not going to be speed walking but you can start with us in old town Alexandria and give it a try. If it is too fast maybe you can hang out in old town. There is lots to see and do.
