A Weekend Trip to Colonial Williamsburg Virginia

My youngest daughter, who mastered in history, (sorry I had to get that in) and I visited Colonial Williamsburg this weekend.   The last time we were in Williamsburg together she participated in the colonial American Girl doll, Felicity, tour and tea.    Colonial Williamsburg hasn’t changed; then again, how could it?  🙂

Since everyone counts steps… we walked 18,000 steps on Friday and 12,000 steps on Saturday throughout Colonial Williamsburg .. my dogs were barking!   But so worth the visit …

Friday we had a wonderful lunch at Josiah Chownings Tavern and at Kings Arm’s Tavern on Saturday.   At Kings Arm’s Tavern we enjoyed our peanut soup while being serenade with Christmas carols from these 2 entertaining guys:

At R. Charlton’s Coffeehouse and Stage we enjoyed a cup of velvety chocolate.

We toured the Governor’s Palace, Courthouse, Capitol, Magazine, Bruton Parish Church, the Public Gaol and so much more in very random order.   Here is a snippet of the sights throughout Colonial Williamsburg.

You can never hide the sun for long…

First snowfall of the season in beautiful Southern Maryland.    A view from my room.

 

Sunrise, from the West

The sunrise this morning over Oriental, North Carolina was spectacular!  I was watching the sun rise over the Neuse River in Pamlico County watching between the supports of the Oriental Bridge.   The blues, pinks and a little bit of gold were just amazing.   Then I turned around to find this beautiful scene.   The sun clearly rises in the east, but on this morning it was a sunrise from the west.

Ahh, the Beautiful Patuxent River at Sunrise

The 115 mile Patuxent River is the largest and longest river entirely within Maryland, and its watershed is the largest completely within Maryland.

An iPhone Sunrise at “the first, licensed African American-owned and operated airport in Maryland, if not the nation, opened on this site in 1941. Originally known as “Riverside Field”, the Columbia Air Center was established by a group of African American aviators known as the Cloud Club”.   For more information visit: PG County Parks.
