Norwalk, Connecticut to Fredericksburg, Virginia

We are done driving!

I write to you from Fredericksburg in the midst of a pancake breakfast that my dad made me.

We spent Friday with David’s family in Norwalk, CT. They took us out for bagels for breakfast, then that night we got to celebrate Passover with them. It was really beautiful to celebrate freedom and the beginnings of wandering in the midst of our own travels. The story of the Exodus is one of my favorites, and it was good to take a moment to remember that in our journeys we have someone guiding us to safety.

Saturday we installed window flower pots for David’s mom for an early Mother’s Day gift, then hopped back into our trusty Honda Fit to head to Brooklyn. We met Benjamin, David’s brother, and his girlfriend, Mara, for brunch in Bushwick. Zeke dog hung out in their apartment with their dog, Audrey, while we feasted on burgers and lamb hot dogs.

We continued our food tour and drove to Bensonhurst to meet the Eng family for dinner. Dorcas is one of my very best friends in the entire universe, and her family kindly welcomes me with hugs every time I see them. Chinese food for dinner included pea shoots, walnut shrimp, and everything delicious under the sun.

And one last time we loaded ourselves and drove down the east coast to Fredericksburg, VA. We arrived at 2:15 AM today. David drove like a champion after a cup of coffee, while I tried to entertain him as I fought my own heavy eyelids. We marched straight to bed. After 3,480 miles, my car will live happily forever in Virginia with my sister.

We’ll rest here for a couple of days, then we start on the next leg of our adventure with our flight to London.
