Following a quiet Christmas, Bob and I decided to take a little road trip. We've been like ships passing in the night these last few months so needed a couple of days to get fed up with one another again - just kidding!
We've always enjoyed traveling by car, stopping to see things you miss from the the air. Historic markers to be read, battlefields to wander through, museums to make one stop and ponder......just revisiting life as it used to be.
Yesterday, Boxing Day, we drove north to America's Historic Triangle in Virginia - Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown.
The sun was shining and casting long shadows in the late afternoon. In 1781 the Battle of Yorktown ended the Revolutionary War right here. Of course being English I had to be nice and bite my tongue now and again!
Today it rained most of the time. Indoor pastimes were the most enjoyable.........museums with movies, a cozy Colonial Williamsburg coffee shop, and a good restaurant for dinner.
We'll be back on the road tomorrow and heading home because there's really no place like it....is there?
