This weekend Albert and I went to Williamsburg, VA for our last trip of the summer. On Saturday morning we got up early (6 AM!) and drove to Williamsburg. We got there around 11 AM since we didn't actually leave until 8. Albert was able to get us some discounted tickets to Colonial Williamsburg through the military and we stayed at the Navy Base in Yorktown for cheap. The Army does have some benefits :D
Here are a few of my favorite pics from Saturday... (If you'd like to see more pics click here.)

Albert and the sunset while waiting for the ferry to go to Surry. We wanted to eat a traditional Virginian meal in Surry, but found the restaurant closed at 8 PM on a Saturday night as we arrived at 7:55. We had to wait another 1/2 hr to get back onto the ferry to go back to Williamsburg where we ate at the ever reliable I-HOP.
