DH took me off to the airport early in the morning. Flights were uneventful (thank goodness!). I got to Richmond airport about noon. BFF and two friends picked me up at the airport. This is what four women in an SUV look like:
After the needlework store we went to check in at the resort. We were early and our rooms weren't ready but we got to leave our luggage there. The best part is they promised to deliver our suitcases to our rooms. I'm so glad, there are steps and it is a hassle. I'm so glad they are taking care of the suitcases.
It is time to go to the DeWitt Wallace Museum where we are scheduled for a tour of needlework stuff. I'm worried that we won't have enough people. We are supposed to have at least 10 for the tour. A couple of people didn't show up. But we invited some others that we ran into at the resort. I shouldn't have been so worried. It all worked out fine. All the drawers below the exhibit of Southern Textiles were open so we could see. Fantastic!
We could take pictures too. This was one of my favorites:
It was really great to see all the samplers and other stitching. I loved it. The DeWitt has a gift shop too. It was fun to shop there. I was tempted but didn't buy anything.
Then I went off with BFF#2 and two other friends. We had an errand to run and then we had reservations at a French restaurant. I went to this restaurant twice before and it is fabulous. We were met at the restaurant by Grace (who wishes to be known as the English BFF) and Linda. So six of us had a blast and a very good meal at Le Yaca. Yes, of course, I had dessert. Three kinds of gelato. Yum. I forgot to take pictures.
It was a great first day at Williamsburg.
