We had a leisurely breakfast because we didn’t have a lot to do to get ready to leave today. We ended up pulling out of the campground around 9:45 in order to beat the rain that was coming. We also wanted to avoid the morning commuter traffic into Washington, D.C. so going a little later made sense. We plugged our destination into the GPS and were on our way. The GPS ended up taking us a way that we weren’t anticipating and it stressed us out a bit, but it turned out alright in the end. There were no trucks allowed on the highway we took, which was good, but it took us into a more congested area. We dealt with the traffic and were around D.C. in no time. Crossing over the Potomac River, we were in Maryland.
As we drove over the bridge, we could see down the Potomac River to the Washington Monument. It was beautiful even on this cloudy, drizzly day.
We crossed over the border into Virginia after the bridge and the rest of the drive was easy.
Traffic lightened up and the road was a like a wooded boulevard.
We crossed the Rappahannock River near Richmond.
It startled to rain lightly as we continued south on I-65 to the town of Williamsburg.
We reached our campground, Williamsburg KOA, at 1:15. After checking in, we were escorted to our campsite, E-1.
As we got set up, it started to rain a little harder, but we finished in no time without getting too wet. We are spending 2 more days in the area in order to have decent weather when we visit Colonial Williamsburg. Auggie found a dry spot sitting at our door to watch for squirrels.
It continued to be damp with sprinkles off and on all afternoon. We watched some TV as we waited for the rain to stop. The campground was large, but it was pretty empty. We had a large, grassy corner site with lots of space for Auggie to explore, once the weather improved.
We had a leisurely evening. In-between the rain showers, Auggie got his walk. We would spend the day at Colonial Williamsburg, either tomorrow or Saturday, depending on which day is the better weather day.
