Mathews is located in the southeast of a peninsula it shares with Gloucester County. It is southeast of Richmond, VA, and east and northeast of Williamsburg, VA.
I drove to Mathews from Newport News, crossing the York River at historic Yorktown. I drove up the George Washington Memorial Highway, and then east on the John Clayton Memorial Highway.
To get to the point of driving to Mathews, I had to travel on three planes and a train, and came home the same way, in reverse, a few days later. It was worth it. I met many great people, some of whom I had "known" for several years via blogging, and some friends I only recently met online.
A good time, and a great deal of food, was had by all.

except the ones of my feet which were taken by my friend Mary Ann,
showing me with my feet in the Atlantic Ocean,
and my toenails painted green to match my flip-flops. (It was that kind of party.)
