I have been so fortunate and God has held me in the palm of his hand throughout this trip. My penultimate day was again beautiful for my ride down to Williamsburg. I rode about 140 miles. The ride was uneventful and I arrived at the Moran’s about 10:30am. Terry and Pat live at Ford’s Colony near Williamsburg now. The moved here from Springfield, near my sister’s home.

Terry made me breakfast and we spent the rest of the morning catching up and viewing some of my pictures. Around noon we got ready for our round of golf. We hit the practice area and I was hitting the ball pretty well...if only it would hold up. The course - Marsh Hawk - is beautiful and has some water hazards but I had a wonderful time but didn’t play particularly well. I couldn’t sink a putt of any length.

Pat only played nine holes then she went to a cocktail party and a Terry and I soldiered on. I ended with a 87 and a Terry beat me by 2 strokes. After the round we retired to the bar for a couple of local beers while we waited for Pat to come pick us up for dinner. Pat arrived and we went back for some showers and then dinner. We ate dinner at the The Blue Talon, a French bistro. The wine, a haut medoc, was good and my dinner of steak frites was excellent. Pat and a Terry both got the duck but weren’t as happy with their meals as I was. Terry had a few words with the manager on the way out.

We returned home and had a nightcap and viewed the rest of the pictures. Terry fell asleep, perhaps Beth was right.....about the pictures.

Tomorrow we will have breakfast and then I will turn for home....I miss Beth and can’t wait to get home.
