After a most excellent meeting , I found myself with 4, count ’em, FOUR, hours to myself! Amazing!
Knowing that I would have time tomorrow to look at some of Richmond’s older architecture and shop in non-chain stores, I decided to use this time to get some work done. I located a huge bookstore complete with free wifi and delicious unsweet tea. After purchasing the obligatory book (obligatory because I can’t ever walk into a book store and not buy at least buy one book), I sat down to work.
Sure enough, I was soon distracted by the sun shining through the big windows and on the various objects around me. I wandered the book store for an hour or so, shooting whatever caught my eye. I guess I attracted attention because the very nice store manager came up, introduced himself and informed me that the store did not allow photography without corporate permission. I explained that I was an amateur photographer and was practicing indoor shooting. I then showed him my pictures and offered to delete. He looked at them, was incredibly kind and said no problem – keep them.
Yeah, I’m not impressed with them either! haha!
Nah, they aren’t that bad … and his gracious attitude will be what I carry with me from that store (besides the mystery that I will read at night after long days in my upcoming conference).

How lucky I am to travel, explore and meet with dear friends!
What a great way to end Day 2!
