Trip Three is coming to its conclusion. Tonight is our last night in the Williamsburg area. Saturday morning we head out. Two more nights on the road until St. Paul. Saturday’s lodging at Hawks Nest Sate Park on the New River in West Virginia should be very scenic. (www.hawksnestsp.com)
Since yesterday went late and was a full day, we took it easy today. We drove to York River State Park less than 20 miles from here. Way back when it was owned by a signer of the U.S. Constitution, John Blair, Jr.. It is next to Camp Peary, an armed forces installation rumored (according to Wikipedia) to be “The Farm”, a covert CIA training site. We did not try to find out if that is true.
We spent several hours walking along the various trails. Only a few flowers were blooming but all of the trees are fully leafed. Osprey, deer, and blue herons were visible.
We wrapped up the week by walking through Colonial Williamsburg and had dinner at the Kings Arms Tavern.
Minnesota here we come- a chance to visit family and re-stock the car before leaving May 3rd for trip four-the far west.
