Day 2: Williamsburg

Sunday, January 18, 2009

9:52am. Watching trashy TV while waiting for Jess to pack. This is the life.

12:15pm. Jess and I are waiting for the shuttle into Williamsburg. She and I have different approaches to vacations... She has to plan and get everything in that she can while I just go and do whatever. She is currently pouring over the map plotting our course. This could be a long day...

3:37pm. I am currently drinking what has to be the best mocha I have ever had. Not really but after being outside for hours it is amazing. Jess is on some tour of some building but I decided to forgo that for the joy of coffee.

4:13pm. By the way Happy Birthday Joel! You're an old man now.

6:12pm. This is Jessica and we are are currently heading north on i-95 to Rockville. The day has gone well in Williamsburg. It was fun to brush up on forgotten early American history...though being winter most things were closed and there were very few people.
We are both getting hungry for a good meal! No really good food has eaten yet... I am hoping this will change very soon.

10:36pm. Arrived at Aunt Nancy's place, albeit after much giggling while lifting Jess up to peer in an old man's window and waking him up. Um yeah, we had the wrong place. Sorry for terrorizing you Lawrence!

We won't have much internet access now so all updates will be from Mr. Berry. Blackberry that is. I will have to post pictures and full stories when we get back.

Oh, and by the way, you know you've been having bad food when the highlight is the Chinese food you got from the grocery store. I am seriously doubting the cooking abilities of the people around here.


1/19 Picture Update:

As many of you know, I am a detail person. Give me the big picture and I will tell you all the details that need to happen for the big picture to be complete. Thus, when I take pictures, I tend to document the details. Here are a few of our journey yesterday in Williamsburg. You can click on any of the pictures to see the full set.

I hope you are going to load up on lots of snacks and water before you venture into D.C.! How cold is it back there, by the way? How early do you plan to "camp out" for the inauguration? It seems like an exciting part of the event would be huddling amongst the crowds waiting for the sun to rise and the festivities to begin! --Rick

That's my girl! Mochas are important. You should have taken my Starbucks coffee thermos. It keeps liquids quite hot for a long time. Lot's of people wish they were in your shoes right now over here. Keep warm. Luv ya!

There are doubtless good eateries, ask around. BUT just to remind you, that you are both accustomed to eating, rather, as they say, "high on the hog" in the variety, quality and imagination departments. You will probably have to go to more than "One Star" establishments in order to eat what you're looking for. Too bad you can't take any food in with you to the Mall. You are going to have so much fun.
Love,
Maudie

You should have eaten at the tavern in Williamsburg, they have really good food. The little general store had amazing gingerbread cookies. I have the recipe.
