Road trip to Williamsburg

We took Dad to happy hour last night after work, but overall, it was an early night for us. We were up around 7 AM this morning and were on the road just after 8 AM. It took us about 2-1/2 hours to drive the 149 miles or so to Williamsburg, Virginia. Kelly and I had gone early last fall, but Dad had never been and we thought it would be a fun day-trip.

We wandered around the grounds for 5 hours or so, eating lunch, looking at the historic buildings, etc. I think this time, the most interesting thing I saw was the printer and the printing press. I missed it last time I was here. It was fascinating to listen to how it was all done.

Dad wanted to see William and Mary and we walked over there later in the afternoon so he could see the Christopher Wren building and some of the older parts of the campus.

Sometime around 4 PM, we headed home. We hit a bit more traffic on the way home, so the drive took us a little longer. We decided to go straight to Pentagon Row and had dinner at Lebanese Taverna.

The weather cooperated with us all day long. It was a good (long) day.
