Steve and Alex have suggested Williamsburg as the site of our next mini-vacation. That would be fun! I haven’t been there since junior high school. All I remember about the trip is that I bought a tri-cornered hat, a blown piece of glass….it was flat and had bubbles in it, a salt glazed mug and some spider plants. I don’t remember anything about the educational aspects of this particular field trip.
It was an overnight trip, though, and involved a big discussion to decide whether I could go or not. I wanted to go so badly, and when I realized I was going to be allowed to go, oh — happy day! And then Mom asked how much money I thought I would need. I have never ever ever been realistic about money, I guess, because I said $5 should do it. I don’t remember how much money they sent me off with but it was substantially more than $5 and I spent every dime.
I think, though, that I’d like to get away from the eastern seaboard. I really think somewhere in the central US or midwest…by the time we make a decision, our “free” vacation may have expired.
