The Way We Were Wednesday - The First Dance


 I was the little ring bearer at Edith and Dick's wedding, I have very few memories of it.  The tradition of the first dance.  Immortalized in one of my father's slides. I was walking in old town Alexandria, and there was a young couple practicing in the park for their first dance.  As Anne Marie reminded us, Dance Like No One is Watching!

    1. This is a new park at the end of King Street, the city bought and tore down the Old Dominion Yacht Club (built them a new building a couple of blocks south) and used the land for a new park and a flood control.

  2. They don't look too self conscious for a couple dancing on grass in shorts. You are fortunate to have old slides and photos.

  3. There's a certain joy to dancing like that in the middle of a park ... even with toe stepping and pained expressions.

  4. Edith looks almost exactly like a co-worker who asked me to be a bridesmaid many, many years ago.

  5. The First Dance strikes terror in everyone's heart, I think.
