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 National Museum of the Marine Corps is a tribute to the United States Marines.   The Museum is located adjacent to Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia.    The Museum opened 10 November 2006 and is clearly with a worth visit.

All of the pictures were taken in the museum and in black and white.
