Our first stop in town was the Downtown Mall and lunch al fresco. We then wandered the shops and made a few purchases before heading to the hotel and a relaxing time at the pool.
Dinner was in Crozet, Va, a small town west of Charlottesville and home to my sister, Suzie and her husband, Jerry and also their bead shop, Blue Ridge Beads & Glass. We had booked a bead class there for 7 pm and with Suzie's patient instructions we all were rewarded with necklaces that we had made ourselves.
and walked to the grave site before lining up for our tour inside.
It was a gorgeous day. We learned so much about Jefferson. But 2 o'clock came too soon so we retraced our route north hoping to miss rush hour around Northern Virginia (we didn't). We've made plans for next year's road trip to Williamsburg and Jamestown and vowed we would have to extend the length to fit more in.
