Bonfire at District Wharf

We finally visited the District Wharf, a new development on the Anacostia River. Itís mainly restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as a place to just hang out on the water, but a welcome change from the derelict area that used to exist here. There are plans to expand it even further into a major attraction for tourists and residents alike.

This was called the bonfire and actually lights up when people are sitting around it, although you canít see the flames in this capture.

Must be lots of construction going on there! Wonder what they did with the displaced people?

Un bel aménagement pour se détendre, ils ne semblent pas trop frileux, les autres passants sont tous bien habillés! V

I can definitely see where this environment would attract tourists and photographers.
