We spent 7 days just outside of Williamsburg, VA...and even though it rained for probably 4 out of those 7, we still had a great time!! We checked out Silverhand Meadery, walked around Colonial Williamsburg, met up with a good friend and coach on our team, made some new friends through a random God thing, explored Richmond and Yorktown AND got our car fixed again. HA! Seems like we did a lot, doesn't it? Guess we crammed a lot in when the rain wasn't coming down.
One morning we drove to Yorktown because we had heard the beach was pretty nice...and it was fabulous! There was a trolley you could get on to explore the area a bit, but we decided to just hang out at the beach because we only had a couple hours before Eli's nap and it was HOT. Sometimes we make decisions based on what Eli is going to like the best...and have the most fun doing...and I'm completely OK with that. The beach was full of little kids and relatively quiet for a little while! We were even able to see the drawbridge open and shut to let a big ship through...Eli thought it was cool for about 5 minutes, but Dan and I loved it. Haha!
We drove to Richmond (40 min) one afternoon to see my friend Jessica. The area where we met to have dinner was ADORABLE. We met up with her at Garnett's Cafe because they had gluten free bread and Dan never gets to have sandwiches any more. We hung out for a couple of hours, ate delicious food and drank some wine. It was a blast!
After meeting up with Jessica, she suggested we head over to Maymont Park because wanted to explore a little bit. This park was SO cool and very unexpected. It's a huge park with walking trails, a giant mansion that's been there for hundreds of years, amazing gardens and waterfalls, fish, bison, farm animals and more!!
In a random turn of events (aka God thing)...we were able to meet up with an Instagram friend that we had started chatting with only a few months prior. We ended up finding out that they started following us from a persicope that my sister did...giving a tour of our RV, right when we went on the road. They didn't know she was my sister, but they had met her at DoTerra's Leadership Conference and had started following her. THEN, we randomly went to their friend's meadery (Silver Hand Meadery) and posted about it on our Instagram...we started chatting and the rest is history :) They are such an incredible family and we were blessed to have them over for dinner!! We're still mastering the art of entertaining in such a small space...so it was tricky...but we'll get the hang of it soon. It was so much fun!!
That concludes the 7 days we spent in Williamsburg, VA. We loved it ad were blessed so much by the people we met and the places we saw!!
