I’ve been eyeing this spot where the cypress trees grow out of the water just a bit south west of Oriental, NC for sometime. I had this vision for a perfect sunrise. I finally made it! The sun was a bit too far to the east yet to rise directly behind the cypress trees, but the color and the reflections were fabulous!

Hard to believe that on 7 April, in Washington, DC, they are calling for snow flurries… but they are. This is the winter that just won’t quit in the DC area. Yet, my daughter and I made the trek down to the Tidal Basin, to see the Cherry Blossoms, this morning. It was cold, wet, and windy… with no sunrise from all the cloud cover. But, I walked away with a little Jefferson, Washington, and Cherry Blossoms.

To day, the first full day of spring, mother nature brought about 6 inches of snow to beautiful Southern Maryland. It’s the new Spring.

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.

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.
