We just came back from six fantastic days in Williamsburg, VA. After the drive down we had dinner with Linda's brother. We do not get to see him too often. Wednesday we parked at the Jamestown Settlement and rode the tandem on the Virginia Capital Trail. A paved trail that goes to Richmond! Follows along route 5. We did 20 miles to Charles City and stopped for lunch then went 20 miles back. A total of 40 miles! We had a second evening visit with Linda's brother.
Thursday we met our friends at Yorktown. We had breakfast and ordered a box lunch at Mobjack Bay Coffee, both were very good. We had a fabulous private hybrid tour of Yorktown and the battlefield. We wanted a taste of both . This was SO much better than trying to read about the battle. I highly recommend it. Contact Mobjack Bay and ask for J Michael Moore, historian. This was really the way to go. Next we went to the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, A well done museum and we needed more time!
We met the rest of our group, a total of 8 of us at the house we rented in Hayes VA right on the river with fantastic river views
Now its back home and back to work. Today I ran my RV to New Holland to have it winterized. Adair's came to measure for some new flooring in the house and the cottage.
The rest of my day was spent on my commission... I did get a little painting time last week.

Adding color to the pumpkin and bottle and the table.
