My daughter and her husband were here for a few days, and we did a lot of Colonial Williamsburg activities and enjoyed much delicious food, too!
Daughter and I signed up for RevQuest: The Lion and the Unicorn. My spy name was Charlotte Eldridge. We had a lot of fun playing this game. Sunday afternoon turned rainy, torrential at times, so we quit for the day and resumed on Monday and solved the mystery! During the worst of the rain, we took refuge in The Golden Ball, where a ring my daughter wanted was on sale, so we got in a little retail therapy as well. We watched some of the Rev City presentation on Monday, as well as Tuesday and Wednesday. The interpreters are very engaging and enthusiastic and do a great job of conveying the heartbreak, difficulties, and joys of the Revolutionary War times.
We'd signed up for Ghosts Among Us, but the restaurant (one of the Richmond Road chains, slammed with Sunday night before Labor Day diners) was slow, and it was still raining quite hard, so we decided to skip that.
We took the Women of Civil War Williamsburg walk one night. Again, entertaining and informative. I recommend bringing a flashlight as some of the terrain is uneven, and at night it's dark!
Love Dean Shostak's Crystal Concert! DD and I had been (I've enjoyed it several times, and still want to keep coming back), but DD's husband hadn't, and he quite enjoyed it too.
We didn't get to spend nearly enough time at the Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, but what we saw was so interesting!
On the way to the airport in Richmond on Thursday, we stopped at Saude Creek Winery. The view is amazing, and the wine sampling was fun, too!
Not a bad meal in the bunch! From Sunday brunch at Waypoint Seafood and Grill to dinner at Opus 9 Wednesday evening, we enjoyed it all! This included dinners at Red Hot and Blue and Blue Talon Bistro, breakfast at HoneyButter's Kitchen, and lunch at King's Arms and at The Pita Pit. Red Lobster was the place that took us so long, but the food was good. In Richmond, we ate at Cheesecake Factory in Short Pump, so good!
Also in Richmond, we visited the Museum of the Confederacy. It's a good museum with some permanent and some changing exhibits.
All in all, a most enjoyable visit!
