All was not lost, though. We had plans, after we dropped Avie off at the airport, to do a driving tour of Richmond and attend the Virginia State Fair. We did both. Bob and Stephanie, tolerated another encore sight-seeing performance and led us on a great tour of VCU, Momument Drive and other interesting Richmond sights. Then it was off to corndog heaven!
Let the gluttony begin. (Only kidding!) The VA State Fair was a fried food paradise. There was fried everything, including twinkies, potato chips, oreo's and more. And I thought Wisconsin Cheese Curds were different. While we did not try everything, we did experiment with a few. Between the four of us (mostly two of us--you guess who by the pictures) we tried the fried twinkie, the fried sweet potato fries, the fried corndog, the chocolate covered potato chips, the grilled italian sausage, fried chicken and the (not fried to my knowledge) warm cinnimon bun with extra cream cheese icing. Needless to say, it was a bit quiet in the car on the drive home. That is, except for the stomach growls.
September Song left today for Mobjack Bay. We stayed another to return the rental car and get the boat ready for about 10 days or so of anchoring before we hit the Norfolk area and the jumping off point for our trek south to warmer climes. Safe travels, September Song.
