We said goodbye to the Outer Banks & headed for Williamsburg. When we left Kill Devil Hills it was raining with thunder & lightening then it was sunshine & showers all the way. Reg has been having one of his flights of fancy again. There's a Honda called The Element which he has been admiring since he first saw one. We were in a car park & there was one parked next to us woman owner comes back to it Reg's jumps out of ours,& introduces himself next minute woman is opening doors folding seats showing him how versatile it is, at one point I thought she was going to give him a test drive!!!!! We were well on our way to Williamsburg when we pass a Honda Dealership, guess who ends up inside ?.
Williamsburg is the most visited place in Virgina. The American Revolution & all that we thought in might be interesting & elected to stay for two nights. On the first evening we went to the Christiana Campbell's Tavern all the staff were in period costume. First thing we noticed when we were being seated was that everybody had their napkins tied around their necks we placed ours on our laps. We were in the middle of eating our meal when this comely women walked in( five foot high & five foot wide). She was talking as if she was from the past, relating events from the revolutionary period of time, when she said her piece a guy in a kilt came in carrying a fiddle, he proceeded to play Scottish jigs, (thank god he didn't have bagpipes). We chose somewhere else the next night. Saturday morning we went in to the Historic part of town you could walk around for free but if you wanted to go inside of any of the buildings there was a $75 admission fee we thought this was a bit expensive. We just ran around like headless chickens planting the Union Flag everywhere & reclaiming the colony on behalf of Her Britannic Majesty.
( I not only went in the Dealership but I came out with a brochure on the said vehicle & also checkout on the Honda website)(Reggie baby)
