Taking the High Road
I'll be taking to the High Road in a couple of days. Two friend and I are going south to Williamsburg, VA. This will be a dream come true for my friend Beth, who is a great fan of Williamsburg and used to go there every year since she was a little girl of 12 (50 odd years ago) . Sadly, her health has kept her away from her beloved Williamsburg for 10 years. Two of us have never been there, so she will have fun educating us for sure.
Beth's home is chock-a-block with Williamsburg statuary, memorabilia, maps, fabrics, authentic paint colours throughout. She even had her double garage door painted to resemble a Williamsburg coach and driver in black silhouette with a Williamsburg blue as a background. We'll be there for 14 days or so and I think it will be a little like deja vu for me, as I have, over the past 5 years, been learning about and seeing Williamsburg through Beth's eyes. So, I am looking forward to enjoying a great trip with an expert. I've checked out the local yarn shops and as Beth is a knitter (crocheter, quilter) also, we'll have even more fun!
So, my friends, "my bag is packed, I'm ready to go,....lalalalala"
