I made it through the to the grocery store on and we stayed in. Cal en- games and I had to make a basket. By Tuesday, things had dried up somewhat and we headed down the road to Jamestown to check out the archeological digs on the origi- nal fort. The archeologists have come a long way in the past year and have had the fort confirmed as the original one by an expert from England. This is something every- one should see if you are down that way. The rest of the week was rest- ful. My hip started hurting and we just weren't up to doing all the things we normally would have done in Williamsburg, especially playing some "poor" golf. We did get to eat some wonderful seafood and do a little shopping in the his- toric area. Several days of rain made it a lazy vacation.
