Williamsburg Virginia - Day Four


I faked an illness this morning so I was able to get out of running. Instead, Beth made me walk for about 15 miles.  If I knew then what I know now about the length of marathon walk for beer that she made me go on, I would have made it easier on myself and ran the doggone thing.  Speakin' of dog's, I'm happy to say that Beth liked Alexander Poe but she's making me turn him in to the front desk.  sigh.  I'm only turning him cuz I want to! "Damnit!" SLAP "Damnit" SLAP "D" SLAP!  "Hey, I didn't say Damnit!" SLAP! "You're lucky I have an illness".

Today we both had work-work to do so it was a light day after the marathon walk that we did.  Not much to report on during the business hours.

This evening, we did go to Yankee Candle in Williamsburg, which is by far the largest collection of candles and candle bits that I've ever seen in my whole life!  There was every kind of scent that you can think of.  Just imagine a smell that you like and I bet if you go to their site, they'll have it. 

The Yankee Candle

We spent about an hours time at the Yankee Candle and Beth bought a couple of smell-goods and then it was time to find dinner.  We drove down the road to the New Town Shopping Center - which is a neat area full of shops in a clustered neighborhood.  It was fun to look around but we were both starving so we didn't dilly dally too much before agreeing on the Center Street Grill. Beth selected a spinach salad topped with Salmon and I chose the a brisket sandwich.  Our appetizer was ribs rubbed with coffee and bbq sauce. They were amazing!  The picture below is an aerial shot of Newtown Shopping Center.  

We had a pretty easy day today and it was a "free" day as we both did work-work most of the day so it was a tele-commute day for real.  Beth is working on a big project located down in Austin an I'm working on a training package for work.  We were both surprised at how fast the day and week has gone by!  Ya'll be Particular!  G'Night.
