In December I had the good fortune to visit Colonial Williamsburg with my best friend. This is a place I’ve wanted to visit ever since I was little and read the American Girls Felicity series (it was my favorite). This trip also included a dazzling experience for me, my first snow! Having lived in South Florida for my whole life, I had never before seen snow. We stopped at Arlington cemetery before CW and wandering the grounds while snow fell was utterly magical.
I also discovered something. Snow is COLD. Yes, this isn’t exactly the discovery of the century but until then I simply did not understand exactly what cold meant. (I usually consider 60 degrees to be cold)
By the time we got to Williamsburg, it was a few degrees above freezing and raining. Sadly, it stayed that way for our entire visit but we made the most of it. We arrived just in time to witness the Grand Illumination firework show.
It was cold and wet and gray, and I am not a particularly good photographer but here are some of my favorites.
We had way to much fun in this maze. After taking this shot we discovered the hill we were standing on was actually the buttery. Or possibly a zombie apocalypse bunker. (Below)
The entire front hall was covered with weapons, all positioned and entwined like the baskethilts above. I may have been taking decorating notes.
Unfortunately, our trip was short and I know we missed lots. I guess that just means I’ll have to go back before too long! (In summer)
