So last Friday morning, my husband and I drove three hours south to Williamsburg,Virginia to buy another car. There are about 50 dealerships within a twenty mile radius of our house. You would have to practically give the car away for us to consider stepping foot in one of these places. I don't know about where you live, but in the Washington, DC area buying a car is about as appealing as thoroughly cleaning a rest stop bathroom and takes far longer! Very slimey. So we decided it made perfect sense to just go our favorite dealership. It's owned by two brothers and the salesman we purchased our last car from, nine years ago, is who we called on again for this purchase. When we arrived, he had the cars we wanted to test drive ready to go. After my husband made his choice (our son will now have one of the old cars to drive) we signed the papers and left a few hours later. I hugged our salesman and said "thanks so much, see you soon". Yep, it was that pleasant.
And, since we were already in one of our favorite southern cities, might as well make the most of it and spend 2 days enjoying a little R&R. Even though I've been playing catch-up this week, it was a small price to pay for a little hiatus!
We visited old friends and new....
|I had to stop by to see the horses. When I lived in Williamsburg, I would visit them every week.|
|This girl stole my heart. We just met and she gave me a nuzzle. If my dog was a horse, she'd look just like this!|
|Sheep are so cute, don't you think?|
Did a little shopping....
|I really wish I had a place for these bug prints. Guestroom?|
|This shelf came home with me. It was suppose to go in the laundry room, but it's 3 inches too long!|
|This would be fun in a beach house.|
|How about an aqua and lime green rug?|
|Or maybe orange and cream geometric?|
And, dined in favorite restaurants....
|If you are ever in the area, I recommend the BTB. Oh, and you'll need a reservation, |
sometimes they are booked weeks in advance!
