Williamsburg, VA

Last summer we took a vacation to Williamsburg, VA.  Shall I bore you with a history lesson?  
Williamsburg is a town that has kept the colonial time period alive.  It is great place to go if you want to learn and see more about our American ancestors during the this time period.

Shoe Maker.

You can purchase colonial hats.  The women's straw hats were made in the village.

It was fun interacting with the re-in-actors.
This gentleman was warning us that the British were nearby.

4 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. We drove right past Williamsburg on our way to the Outer Banks ... I thought about stopping, but we just didn't have time. Next time perhaps.

  2. That is what we did on our vacation. We went to the Outer Banks and then to Williamsburg. It was a lot to try to fill in one week.

  3. I used to love driving to Williamsburg from where I lived in nearby Newport was a great place to go for a long walk. And I loved the molasses cookies :-)

  4. That pic of you and your son made me smile!!!
