Home Away From Home, Virginia

Next Stop – Williamsburg, Virginia

Sunday morning dawned bright and early for us as we had much to do before our departure for Willliamsburg. Because it was after dark when we returned from the group gathering last night we were unable to accomplish any of our usual pre-departure tasks such as taking the tent down or putting up the outside things. Before tackling those tasks though we gathered with the group for breakfast and devotions. It delayed our departure time but what a perfect way to end a rally.

We finally got everything put away and/or packed up and pulled out of Creekwood Campground a little before 10:00. To say it was a long day is quite the understatement. We ran into road construction at least three times and two accidents along the way. Who knew that a fender bender could tie up traffic for such a long time. We figured we spent at least two hours stopped or barely moving. When we stopped for gas I got us something to eat and we were back on the road in 15 minutes. A quick stop at a rest stop when we hit the Virginia border gave us a few minutes to walk around a bit. Both of us needed to stretch the kinks out.

We finally arrived at American Heritage Campground at 6:38 putting the 330 rule to shame. (Off the road after 330 miles or by 3:30 pm). We got checked in quickly, unhooked the car and headed to site 94. It was a pull through so that was easy but setting up in the dark is never easy. We got “kind of” level, enough to survive the night and Jerry was able to hook up the electric, water, septic and cable in the dark. I know Jerry was tired as he had driven about 450 miles. Glad tomorrow is a free day!
