We were blessed to make some new friends, Dawn and Jim, and shared the morning with them at Williamsburg Community Chapel. It was a wonderful service - the pianist used to play for Billy Graham at his crusades! Post-service, Dawn and Jim gave us a short tour of the campus of William and Mary, and we had a wonderful breakfast at the Blue Talon Bistro. BTW, Jim writes gospel music and even serenaded us in the car with one of his 'hits'! Dawn is actively involved in the Williamsburg and Yorktown communities and works in the commercial real estate field, so was a perfect tour guide around the area!
This is the first real 'house boat' we've seen like this one! Floated pretty well given the water conditions!
Yorktown Fife and Drum Corps performed at one of the battlefields
These were all young high-schoolers, and they put on a terrific performance!

We enjoyed seeing all the brick fences and homes
Lot's of nice walking opportunities.. we chalked up about 6 miles today..... no wonder our feet hurt!
