The alarm woke us up at 6AM, and we were dressed and out the door by 6:15AM. My t-shirt was mostly dry, enough so I could wear it without being uncomfortable. Neither of us had slept well, but H applied her "show must go on" instincts and got herself moving. However, there was no convenient coffee for her (hotel coffee is "muddy water," remember?) so I'd be the one driving until we passed a Starbucks.
If you're on the road long enough, sooner or later you'll reach your destination. We finally arrived at the site of the Virginia Renaissance Faire. The Faire had ended a few weeks prior to our arrival, but the site was still accessible. It's located at a winery. We passed rows of grape vines, and there were a couple of farmers doing vine-growing stuff.
While still in Maryland, H began to feel the consequences of the Starbucks coffee she'd gotten in New Jersey. Her driving became ever more efficient as she we looked for the next rest stop. Not only was her bladder filling up, but the gas tank was getting low; it was time to think about adjusting fluid levels in their respective containers.
