Day twenty
Williamsburg, Virginia. Now this is an impressive place. Totally commercial and yet still very interesting.

Some of the scenery in Virginia

Colonial Williamsburg. The whole town is set up in period architecture with stores and taverns of the time.

To my surprise we were permitted to take pictures inside the mansion. So I did.

One of the many skits going on in town concerning the major issues of the time, Like the rising cost of products etc.

A horse brought out for auction. He is apparently an American Cream Draft. New breed to me, but a very amiable fellow. He ended up going to the war effort in exchange for a barrel full of tobacco.  Of course that was just in fun. Next day I saw him grazing out in his pasture along with the other 'actor' horses.

Really nice meal. Getting ready for our dessert sampler. Ate too much again! I'm really going to have to get to the gym once we get home!

Wow, Keays. What a fantastic, interesting holiday. I would love to live in a place like this - an entire town doing living history. And it looks like everybody is enjoying it - visitors and actors. It seems they provide true insight into what life was like back then.
If that is a dessert sampler... Looks delicious! And aren't holidays a time to indulge?

These pictures are really bringing back the memories, Keays. When my kids were little we lived in Virginia for a year. My husband and I took them to Williamsburg. I remember visiting the  Governor's Mansion. There was a cookhouse out back and a shrubbery maze, as I recall. Loved the skits and how authentic it was.  Wonderful place to visit. We also went to Jamestown and Mt. Vernon. It looks like you are having a wonderful trip!

Thanks Steph!  Yes, if you can't indulge on your vacation then when can you?  And we are indulging!  It is fun though.

Both of us are getting a bit 'battlefielded out' at this point.  We were going to do The Brrandywine next but have decided to push on after Gettysburg.  Might not even stay here too long.

It is a neat place JavaBee.  And there are private residences right in the town.  I could see myself living here!
