Friends are here and today we shall emerge and go forth to enjoy! It turns out that Colonial Williamsburg doesn’t exactly have an entrance fee. There are things in there that if you want to see them, have entry fees, but it’s free to go to the town and just enjoy it. Which hopefully is what we’ll do today.
Adding Yorktown and Jamestown costs very little. For the historical stuff, time is more the issue than is money. We have to pace ourselves, see as much as we can without getting exhausted. Young at heart? Yes, absolutely. But our bones know the truth and we can’t ignore them.
Tomorrow will be some combination of fun activities … and I’m betting it will be Busch Gardens.
Pricey, but they have all those roller coasters and I am simply NOT going to pass up the opportunity. I’m not going to miss it.
I didn’t drive all these miles to say “Oops, can’t afford it.” That’s stupid. So I’m doing it, and that it. Even if I have to pay more than I imagined in my nightmares I would need to pay!
The hotel which isn’t a hotel, but a condo time share, is MUCH nicer than I expected.
Aside from our quarters being huge and very nicely appointed, there are many more activities and I expected and just overall, a really lovely place.
The balcony off the living room has a peaceful view of the woods and trails. Which is what we see out our windows at home, but it’s a big improvement from the many views of parking lots I’ve had over the years from where I was staying!
If only it weren’t so godawful far away from home!
We’re pretty much recovered from the drive and now, I WANT TO HAVE SOME FUN!!!
Tune in for updates!
