Colonial Williamsburg - Biggest Wordless Wednesday Ever!

Walker, my nephew, and Cullen with the local newspaper editor and his horse.

Our guide for Mechanics of the Trades tour demonstrating a lever.

Couldn't miss this photo op!

Blacksmith making nails.
Doctor's office.
Apothecary. Note the chocolate bar on the shelf with the medicine.
The re-enactor at the Capital was terrific.
A quiet moment.
These kids were really great!
Believe it or not, this is a candid shot. He is a serious fan of George Washington!
A"new" piano-forte and an "expensive" cotton slipcover over a silk-upholstered chair- before cotton was grown here.
Fancy heater in the Governor's Mansion.

The boys stayed in character nearly the whole visit.

See what I mean?

Looks like a real Minuteman!

This horse is obviously a little boy at heart.

The gunsmith shop was especially interesting to the boys.

How to make your own bullets is useful information!
I almost couldn't get them out of the armory.
All of us - me, Walker, my Mom and Cullen - taking a carriage ride.
It was difficult to choose from a thousand pictures! There were so many shops, interesting people and examples of Colonial architecture. We were there two days and didn't manage to see it all.

 Next up, highlights of our visit to the Jamestown Settlement and Yorktown Victory Center.

Looks like y'all had a great two days! We did Jamestown & Yorktown when my DDs were younger but never did Williamsburg.


Love your pics. We were there in September. We had a great time. Glad you did also.

Great pictures! We were there in 2005. One of our best field trips!

Thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog. :)
