Wednesday morning we had a nice breakfast at the hotel. That was a good thing because we never had lunch. Our goal today is to visit Agecroft Hall Museum, drive to Williamsburg, shop at Haus Tirol, and check into the resort. Our first challenge was finding the Agecroft Museum. Matilda does not like rainstorms. She could not find a satellite. I printed out directions to get there just in case. But I took a wrong turn. (Second driving mistake.) We had the scenic tour of downtown Richmond. ARGH. It took us forever to find the museum. It is in a residential area. It is a very nice place to visit.
This was a house from England that was very old, like 500 years, that was disassembled, put on a boat and rebuilt with a great deal of updating in 1926 in Richmond. They guy who did it wanted to make an English style village. Unfortunately he died in 1928 and then came the depression. After having been in Scotland and England recently, it was very interesting to see how the house compared to places I'd seen. The museum is very interesting but we couldn't take any pictures inside. There are some lovely gardens although this is not the time of year that they are lovely. There were some very nice embroideries there. Among them were wonderful 17th century gloves and a book cover as well as an embroidered portrait.
This was a pear tree.
