A few miles from Virginia Beach is Newport News where Charlie and Susan live. They use to live in Austin where Charlie had worked with Lonnie. They moved from Austin about 30 years so we were really looking forward to meeting up with them and getting reacquainted. We had a fantastic visit, they were excellent tour guides showing us around Newport News and Colonial Williamsburg. We had lunch at Kings Arms an 18th century tavern located in old town Williamsburg where the servers dress in costume. We had a good lunch served with a peach/orange ginger ale punch, which Lonnie really found memorable. Charlie and Susan were so gracious and opened their beautiful home located on the River to us.
We thank both couples for welcoming us so warmly for a few days and showing us a very enjoyable visit.
