We had a very long drive from South Carolina up to Virginia. We stopped and ate lunch and grabbed a cache at a rest stop. We saw there was a museum for a movie star and stopped at the one for Ava Gardner in Smithfield, North Carolina. We didn’t go in the actual museum (we could see some of the costumes), but bought a few things for my mom who loves old movies. They were Sean’s gifts to her.
We were getting hungry for dinner and stopped at a chicken place called Bojangles. They give you a lot to eat! Good eats.
We got to Williamsburg after dark and we drove down to the town, but it was difficult to see anything, so we went up early the next day. My memories from 1978 were there, but we did a lot more walking around. We didn’t do any tours, but enjoyed taking photos and shopping. We even looked for a cache in woods near The College of William and Mary to no avail.
Here’s some of our visit:
We had actually gone to the visitor center and looked at how much tours were and thought we could do better on our own. We did get to see the inside of the church, but not the Governor’s Place.
