We finally meandered next door through the muggy heat to the Peace Hill Press headquarters to meet Susan Wise Bauer. She was very gracious, especially considering we (still on Pacific time and after a late, late night) were interrupting her lunch hour. She gave us a tour of the offices, answered questions, and introduced us to the staff.
We browsed and plundered the shelves of books. Justin chatted and answered more questions.
Justin’s wife, Mel, brought us chocolate-dipped strawberries.
Sarah’s husband, Charlie, came to visit with us.
We wrapped up our visit to Peace Hill Press and let Susan get some lunch since we would be seeing her the next day. Back at the B&B, Tanya and Mike had packed up snacks for us to take on our afternoon adventures. I was starting to really appreciate being spoiled.
It was late in the afternoon by the time we made it to Colonial Williamsburg, but we enjoyed every minute! We walked and enjoyed the gorgeous surroundings and then took a tour of the Governor’s Palace.
We ended our evening with a delicious meal at Chowning’s Tavern to complete our historical experience.
