Day 2 of Sabrina’s visit was uneventful from our perspective. We had lunch at home and then took her up to check out Short Pump. We checked out all our favorite stores and even helped her acquire a few more items for her wardrobe Then we treated her to our typical Tuesday evening dinner – Taco Tuesday. We ended the night with an ice cream tasting event – Reese’s Peanut Butter and Orange Creamsicle for the win!
Day 3 was much more eventful. We started the morning off at Maymont Park in Richmond. It’s a great way to start off a summer day – a leisurely stroll through gorgeous scenery with two awesome people. Of course, we worked up an appetite and couldn’t resist taking Sabrina to one of Richmond’s awesome local establishments…..Bottoms Up Pizza. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch! After that, we toured Main Street Station and took a little canal cruise. (If you take the canal cruise, try to get Charles Hibber as your tour guide – he’s an amazing storyteller and he’ll have you captivated the entire time! I will warn you – his enthusiasm is so great that you’ll want to sit a ways away from his captain area – he’s a bit loud ) After we finished that up, we had to hit two more of Richmond’s finest establishments – (these are not places for those who don’t like a good dose of sugar!) Pearl’s Cupcake Shoppe and Sugar Shack. We wrapped up the day back at home indulging in delightful conversation and enjoying one another’s company.
Stay tuned for the next few days of our visit in Virginia Beach
