Williamsburg, VA proves I was born in the wrong time

Cobblestone streets. Peanut butter soup. Shadowed dinner by candlelight. The clip-clop of horse hooves. Cobblers who fixed the same pair of shoes to last your lifetime. Fervent political parties. Homemade soap.  Wood burning stoves. What I wouldn’t do to have lived back then….

We visited Williamsburg  a couple of years ago while stationed in Norfolk and besides my time in Alaska….well, and Brazil, it was the only time I ever felt truly at home. I think I must have smiled the entire two days.

But for some reason, like many of my pre-written posts (which I’ve been pushing  out lately), they just never got published!

Here are a few pictures from our MAGICAL trip.

Little Miss Tuffet….or was it Muffet? You know, the one who ate her curds and whey…

Stew! My kind of food, no doubt made in the crock pot. Ha!

Horse and oxen poo lined streets. Oh yeah!

A simpler life.

In my eyes, it is one of those places you have to visit at least once in your life. You’ll think you’ve gone back in time.

  1. Lovely! Looks like my kinda place too.

  2. Oh, yes! I’m a big Williamsburg fan, too! My only regret is I don’t get there often enough.
    Here’s a question for you: have you ever been to the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton? It looks great, but I haven’t made it out there yet.

  3. Love it! I always loved Rockome Gardens, a little Amish village in Illinois we used to visit when we were kids. Definitely agree, my kind of place! Looks lovely! I’m torn between that and the beach though. I just love being outside in the sunshine! It does wonders for your mood! 🙂

  4. @ Beth—yes, it does!
    @Shannon—you are my girl.

Tell me what you think. I don't get to answer comments like I did before baby but I read every single comment. And they really make my day!
