Home from sister trip to Williamsburg

Well, took my sister, Jean, to the airport this morning. We had a wonderful "sister vacation" this year. We started out visiting my friends Diane and her Mom Mildred in Mt. Dora Florida, having lunch at the Goblin Restaurant and then shopping the quaint shops in the town. We then headed off to Orlando to have dinner with my daughter, Lindsay. We ate at the Beach Club in Disney at the Cape May Restaurant, lots of steamed clams - yum!! We spent the night at Lindsay's apartment. We were up and out the next morning (Monday the 28th). We had a wonderful drive up Highway 95. Minimal traffic and the gas prices stayed at about $3 to $3.09 a gallon. The most we paid was $3.19 a gallon. Though higher than what we were use to from last year, it was less expensive than what my sister was paying in Ohio - $3.45 a gallon - outrageous!!! We stopped in Fayetteville, NC for the night - ate at Outback and then back to the Hampton Inn and Jammies and TV.

Headed out on Tuesday and arrived in the Williamsburg area around 11:30am and stopped at the Pottery Factory and poked about. We then stopped at the Outlet mall and did some serious shopping and pocketbook damage. We arrived in Merchant Square in Historic Williamsburg about 3:00pm and had lunch at The Trellis restaurant (know for their Death By Chocolate of which we did not do!!!). We poked around Merchant Square before heading to the hotel. We stayed at the Woodland Hotel which is part of the Colonial Williamsburg area. We had a nice room on the 3rd floor overlooking a lovely courtyard area. That evening (Tuesday) we went on a "Ghost Walk" through parts of Colonial Williamsburg - interesting and fun - but tiring - two hours of standing or walking.

I have some pictures to post and hope to do so within the next few day - so until later.
