|From Behind My Eyes - The Adventures of Tim Stubbe||
Packed up the tent at Pocahontas State Park and headed east toward Williamsbrug. A busy Saturday had a large bicycle race going on along our route making traveling slow. We stopped at Jamestown for a few minutes at a place called the "Glass House" this was where the first settlers made glass for the Jamestown settlement. There were several artisans making glass in the same manner that the settlers did except they had a gas furnace. After purchasing a very nice oil lamp that they would ship home for me we continued on to Williamsburg. Once there we took a few hours walking the streets of one of the oldest english settlements and home of WIlliam & Mary the oldest college EST 1608. The streets were crowded with a street fair at one end but once out of the crowds I was able to get some pretty decent pictures.
Availing myself the use of the town punishments called "Stocks" proved for a light momemt as we wandered around the town. My wife especiallly likes this and wants it enlarged and hung in the hallway.
We ended the day with a nice meal at "Red Hot & Blue" BBQ restaurant which was quite good and put down for the night at the local Econo Lodge. This was the last day Bob was going to be with me, as he was headed home to Greenville S.C. My Time with Bob was great and we enjoyed many new sights on the road durning our travels. I'll miss our friendly banter and jokes and Bob's company.
Today I'll head up to Fredericksburg. Weather forcast for Sunday night through Tuseday is not looking good rain 80% Monday, 50% Tuesday will probably find me holed up somewhere, but I've been considering taking the train to Washington DC to visit the Smithsonian Museums on those days,if the weather is to bad. I've been pretty lucky with weather with only 1 day of rain riding. A day of rest after 5 straight riding will also be welcome.
