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.

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist – Savannah, GA

On our US Route 17 Holiday Road trip, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah, GA was on my “must see” list.   And the church did not disappoint — it is absolutely beautiful.

The cathedral sits on Lafayette Square in downtown Savannah.    Construction on the cathedral began in 1873 and completed in 1896 with the additions of the spires.    It was almost destroyed by fire in 1898 but survived, although needing extensive repair.  

It was beautifully decorated for Christmas — quite a sight!   And it appeared to be the “busiest” tourist attraction too!
