No this isn’t Kevin Bacon’s house.  No, they don’t store bacon here.  It was a trip that really started with “let’s ride the ferry today.”

side note:  I had participated in a ride back in 1988 that’s now part of Bike Virginia.  The very first edition was called “The Colonial Williamsburg Bike Trek” and it was a first for me.  First really big, organized ride and my first one on my own.  Big deal as a junior in high school.  No parents.  No siblings.  Lots of responsibility.

Anyway, I remember part of that ride back in ’88 had us hop the ferry over to Surry and ride near all the crop fields and I thought it was a very cool place.  So I convinced my wife to hop the ferry and we explored Surry for a day.  If you’re into history, I highly recommend it.
