DEPARTURE SATURDAY, APRIL 12 Thank you to all our parents for seeing us off on this long exciting trip. Our Trip was very uneventful for the first eight hours. We had two rest-stops one at the Toigo Welcome Center and a second about 20 minutes south of Harrisburg. Once heading south we were mostly fine till we all intersected Interstate-95 and the trip suddenly came to a standstill. After much stop and go, we arrived at a beautiful campsite on the Chickahominy River. Day 2: Williamsburg, VA: Most of the Troop attended Mass at St. Bede Catholic Church for Palm Sunday. What a beautiful church! They had a very nice celebration and recongized our Troops visit with a very warm greeting. We meet a Scout from Troop 103 who's Scoutmaster recommended the campsite. Immediately after mass, we made a side trip to Starbucks to caffeinate Mr. H and then we were on to Colonial Williamsburg. After prepping brown bag lunches, we arrived at the visitor center where we viewed one of the movies. Our first stop was the governor's palace where we learned about how the family left the colony in the middle of the nights. After a quick lunch we split into two groups and visited many of the western buildings such as the church, riflemaker, blacksmith, and arsenal among others. We had sunshine and a high temperature around 80. We are looking forward to Day 3.
