Good morning! How was your weekend? Did you have lots of trick-or-treaters? As we always buy lots and lots of candy and have no visitors we skipped town. Thankfully no one was offended and the house was still standing.
Last year we went to Maine to take in the Fall colors and this year we decided on Williamsburg, Va. I have to tell you we were not disappointed; The colors were the most beautiful that I have seen in years. In our neck of the woods things are taking a little longer. There are a lot of photos in this post, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.
Have you been to Colonial Williamsburg? It is basically a living history museum and foundation that encompasses 301 acres and 600 buildings dating from 1690-1780.
The town re-creates the atmosphere and ideals of the 18th century American people and its revolutionary leaders.
Their motto is, ” That the future may learn from the past,” and you can experience it all through costumed interpreters, historical and authentic buildings, tools, clothing, and more.
I have visited here several times and always enjoy the museums, restaurants, shops and of course walking the campus of the College of William and Mary which was founded in 1693 and is actually the second oldest college in America.
Have you ever been to visit? If so, what did you think? Have you been at the holidays? It is actually beautifully decorated using the foliage, and fruits that they had available in colonial times but if you are looking for a Christmas tree you will not find one because they were not used then.
I am looking forward to my next visit as the area has so much to see and do, in addition to the colonial town you can visit Yorktown and Jamestown settlement.
I hope that you enjoyed my adventure to Williamsburg. Have a great day!
