New C&O Dry Dock

Here’s something you Georgetowners don’t see every day:

New dry dock for C&O Canal boat under construction.

Workers and a crane in the mud of the drained C&O canal are building a new dry dock for the canal boat, probably to make the upcoming flurry of bridge restoration work easier.

Roving Asian mendicant, can occasionally be seen wandering the streets of downtown Washington, muttering unintelligible gibberish to passers-by while pushing a “bag lady” shopping cart full of old blankets, American flags, soda cans, and healthy secondhand snacks from organic food shop dumpsters. Used to live in a cardboard box at 16th and K but the rent was too expensive.
