Colonial Williamsburg

This week we went to Colonial Williamsburg! I had been once, when I was 6. I was bored then. That certainly wasn't a problem this time! I love colonial history, so I was in heaven. It's amazing what you can learn in only two days! I don't know if any of you have ever been, but it's absolutely beautiful. It's amazing being in a building and thinking that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry were all there once. I can't decide which part was my favorite.



The Capitol Building



Happy criminals in the stocks. :)


Drilling with the militia.







Bruton Parish Church


Calf's head for dinner in the Governor's Palace. Yummy!

What a great trip! I loved this post and the pictures, especially, since I love that place! We used to participate in 18th century living history reenactments locally and have visited Colonial Williamsburg many times. I'm wondering..did you get to hear George Washing or Thomas Jefferson address the public? The reenactors who so them are very seasoned.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful vacation. :)

Lindy,

I, also, share a great love for Colonial Williamsburg!!! It appears you had a wonderful time, but then, who wouldn't? My husband and I were there last summer and we enjoyed it so much. We visited Williamsburg numerous times while our children were growing up and they enjoy it now, as well. Bruton Parish church is one of my favorite stops. Just to think that I can sit in the same place of worship as so many of our great leaders and thinkers. What a rush!!!

Thank you for sharing with all of us!!
