We went down on a Friday and, as I've shared in a previous post, we stopped along the way at New Kent Winery and at Saude Creek Winery. I finally downloaded those pictures!

|If you rather sit outside by a fire...they have this!|
After stopping at these two great places we headed down the road and checked in to our hotel. We stayed at the Quality Inn on the bypass in Williamsburg. I snagged a good deal on Kayak and it was nicer than I expected...minus the noisy neighbors holding a meeting at 6 a.m. in the hallway!
We had dinner at Carrabas (my first time ever going) and did a little shopping around. Breakfast was at The Bakers Crust and OMG...crazy good food!

|French Toast with rum and bananas!|
Some of our shopping was actually next to Colonial Williamsburg in Merchant's Square. The shops here are small and quaint. You find yourself walking along and finding the unexpected.

|A Farmer's Market was set up too for browsing.|
|All the shops look like they are from a bygone time.|

|Our cat friend waited for us to come back.|
There is a gigantic Yankee Candle store in Williamsburg! That is the store that will make it snow inside! It's a treat to take the kids in and watch them play inside. Carrabas is right next door by the way ;) So if you go with a group if someone will wait for the seats everyone else can go next door and do a little shopping!
It was a great get away with my friend and a great way to start a little Christmas shopping!
