Day 2 began with us leaving the tackiest Holiday Inn in America and me vowing never to let my husband plan any part of a trip ever again.
Leaving Delaware we crossed into Maryland, where we passed through an interesting town.
Seriously…. it’s a place.
Matter of fact, I know quite a few people who should live there.
And if you’ve ever wondered if Maryland is considered the south?
When you grow cotton in your front yard? Yes.
It’s the south.
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. A marvel of engineering that we hadn’t been over in 20 years.
Yes, it costs $18 to cross…
But it’s the world’s largest bridge tunnel complex and spans 17.6 miles.
If you’ve never done it?
On the other side is Virginia Beach.
Many more tunnels…
And this bizarre looking building. Any native Virginians know what it is?
Blah, blah, blah…. husband speeding, me taking pictures, we arrive at our temporary home for our first week in Williamsburg.
After proving our reservation at the security gate, we entered the Historic Powhatan Resort.
May I just say? Wow.
Though I always thoroughly research the time share resorts where we stay and try to book the best places, you never really know what you’ll find.
I nailed it.
256 acres of natural beauty…. and geese.
Quiet, peaceful open spaces…. and geese.
Ponds, fountains… and geese.
We drove around for quite a while just taking it in, before even looking for our unit.
Did I mention there’s a Manor House dating to 1735?
The land was originally a plantation, and they’ve done a beautiful job restoring the place.
Did I mention there were geese?
